SMRT is, however, facing flack for the sacking of two of its employees last week for the 22 March 2016 fatal train accident which claimed the lives of two of its staff, Mr Nasrulhudin Najumudin, 26, and Mr Muhammad Asyraf Ahmad Buhari, 24, who were SMRT maintenance workers trainees.

Mr Rahmat Mohd, 49, the train driver involved in the accident in March, had been assigned to a non-driving job after the accident. According to The Straits Times, he had been called to the SMRT office  for an internal inquiry and dismissed thereafter.

On Monday (19 September), the National Transport Workers’ Union (NTWU) stated in a media release that it had filed an appeal to the management of SMRT against the dismissal of its two drivers.

The SMRT had also been plagued by disruptions in the month of August and September which have caused major delays of up to 3 hours for commuters including a mysterious signaling fault on its Circle Line which it is addressing.
