Finally functioned for users
The Ministry of Transportation has revealed that escalators at monorail and LRT stations have malfunctioned and that they will change service provider by 2023.
However, on December 12, commuters revealed on social media that fast escalator repairs had been made at numerous train stations.
They also showed some of the escalators that, much to their surprise, had already been fixed.
Some netizens joked that the fast escalator repairs were done because of an employee who was scared for their job security after Anthony Loke was appointed as the Transport Minister.
