Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT) & Sengkang-Punggol LRT (SPLRT) Discussion
Does you wish to upgrade, replace or scrap the BPLRT systems? This is a question on SMRT blog here. There are 4 options:

1. Autonomous Guided Vechicle which does not draw on external power.
2. Replacement the whole systems and redesign it.
3. Renewal the current Bombardier systems with CBTC
4. Scrap the BPLRT, replace by all bus system.

In my opinion, 2 is a better solution which re-design whole systems and also expand the systems to Keat Hong area. I also hope to see the trains can accommodate more capacity like using three or four cars with gangway. Then building the another depot to complement the current TMJ depot.

I prefer them to redesign the system, you know like Changi's Skytrain, which was formerly CX100. So yeah, why not replace it in a similiar way? (Crystal Mover maybe?)

I'm thinking if they demolish the existing Line, why not rebuild it with the JRL since it's also projected to go to CCK area either way plus it would move more people from the DTL over to the mainline of NSL. 

I have thought of the buffer area at CCK is like a stub for  the "eventual extension" over to JRL that works fairly weird...

In the new Era of transport, nothing has changed, at least visibly. Disruption still a regular, and perhaps the bus is slow and safe...
According to LTA, 2-car trial operations on the Punggol LRT starts today where 2-car trains will be deployed on revenue service during off-peak hours on the Punggol LRT.
PW3 Punggol Point stn opens today while PW4 Samudera will open next year in March 2017.PW2 Teck Lee wouldn't be opening anytime soon as there aren't any(or is there?)developments in the area except for forests and the branch out viaduct/tracks reserved for Punggol North 'extension',which is most Line shelved.

Quick qn:

All LRT lines (BP, SK & PG) are running on ATO or CBTC?

If they are not CBTC, what features do they lose out over their MRT counterparts (Except the maximum number of passenger allowed in train, lol!!)

Btw, ATO is not the same as CBTC. ATO is the ability for a train to be driverless, no manual or drive-by-sight required.
CBTC is a communication system, and manually driven trains can run on lines equipped with CBTC. TBTC is also a communication systems used by seltrac in the past.
