Ominous omen for downtown line

All along I've been wondering why on earth the authorities would even think of ending the downtown line at an LRT line, and to top if off, the most frequently broken down LRT line in Singapore as of today.

The issue with the LRT line this week is an ominous omen on what is to come when the downtown line is finally open. Just imagine. If the LRT line is down, think of the repercussions on downtown line and all the other connecting lines to it.

It will cause a massive slowdown for all the affected lines and there's nothing we can do about it because there is no additional rail to bypass affected stations. To top it off, the authorities removed most bus routes that duplicate the train routes making it even worse because there are no alternatives.

Is everyone only thinking of the positive scenarios and did not think of the negative scenarios?

Unlike the renaming of "Marina Bay", they will rename it "Downtime Line" when its up and the LRT is not running.

No alternative bus route if the train breaks down?
Seems to be par for the course.

There are no alternatives too (in the sense of people with some experience in governing) if the long-time ruling party breaks down.
Which it has!
