LRT preliminary report submitted in 14 days

One thing comforting of the recent LRT mishap incident is that all except two have been released by hospital.

Before any adjustment or change is to be made of the LRT operation, train service was able to resume the next day and not wait two weeks. Any problems and repair sorted out overnight.

That revived public confidence and prevented speculations arising from any wait. Equally impressive, a preliminary report have been submitted by the Investigation Committee within 14 days.

Dato Dr Wee Ka Siong uploaded the following announcement on his Facebook page yesterday as below

I have received the preliminary report from the Investigation Committee on the Kelana Jaya LRT collision which occurred on 24 May 2021 via a virtual conference with the Committee. 

I am satisfied that the report compiled by the 9-member committee led by our Ministry of Transport Secretary General was indeed professionally done, comprehensive in its details, and completed within the 14-day period given to them. 

Kudos and congratulations to the team for their tireless efforts, and burning the midnight oil these few days, including going to the ground at the Kelana Jaya OCC, going through the simulations, interviews, and poring through the guidelines and documents.

I look forward to presenting their findings to the Cabinet on Wednesday, 9th June 2021, with several recommendations to bridge the gaps in the safety and standard operating procedures for RapidRail’s trains.

I am still studying the documents and findings given by the committee. More than improving RapidRail’s services, these findings, and recommendations will go a long way to improving Malaysia’s entire rail service infrastructure for the long term into the future.

The finding was submitted to cabinet today. Was it a human error or structural one for the automated Bombardier system?

The system been running well for more than 20 years. This blogger took a ride on the first day of operation.
