Alex Au has written a good article. I like the point about feeder service taking 15 minutes to arrive. This is the weak point of our transport system. He also question about the need to increase our population to 6 million. I agree that we should not increase the population, as Singapore is already too crowded and the facilities are inadequate. http://yawningbread.wordpress.com/2011/11/24/additional-public-transport-capacity-hard-to-estimate-benefit/
