    Good thing no Sembawang package routes were affected. If not the handover from SMB to TT won’t be peaceful at all. Hope no drivers in Woodlands or Sembawang interchanges fall sick.

    Yeah. Its time. I doubt any suspension from SMRT side as most of its service aint affected for the past 2 weeks.

    For SBST, I know it getting worse. Eg. 179/179A. From 3-5 mins frequency had been lengthen to 9 mins (for 179) and 2-3 buses aka 20 mins (for 179A). This occurred about 2 weeks ago and still continue for now.
