grand opening ngayon dito sa singapore ng NEL (north-east line). ito yung underground train system na ginawa nila na umiikot palibot sa north-east part (where else?) ng siyudad… $5 billion cost, 16 stations over 20 kilometers. what’s cool about this new MRT system is that it is the first fully automated underground heavy rail system in the world.
anong ibig sabihin nito? uh, walang driver yung train. hehehe… being an automation engineer myself, interesado ako kung papaano ito tatakbo ngayong commercial operation na siya. i’m sure marami pa itong bugs at yung fact na walang driver ang train makes it more exciting. narinig nyo na ba yung kanta ng soul asylum?
