Good news for Alstom:
Here is an article on China's rolling stocks manufacturer CNR Corp and CSR Corp agreed to merge as China Railway Rolling Stock Corp, also known as CRRC.
Taking about CSR Sifang, here is the legal document i found:
Alstom bought over GE for rail business, while in exchange GE bought over Alstom for energy business. This included the Tempo CBTC, which use for TEL signalling systems.

This sounds interesting... Any thoughts? 

If this really happens, there will probably be a bigger-than-current "new" SMRT, operating every single bus, MRT & LRT lines. I have tried SMRT Buses before and honestly speaking, SBS really has to buck up more in providing the kind of service and comfort SMRT provides, like pax info screens at SMRT Bus interchanges, in-bus pax info screens, etc. 

Or if this doesn't happen, why not go back to the basics of why SBS and SMRT were specifically established - SBS to operate all buses and SMRT to operate all MRT lines, both of them strictly confined to their areas of expertise, so that they are not distracted by other businesses. 

In fact, I don't really see any so-called "competition" now between both companies, lines operated by both of them are about the same standards and levels... So, why not LTA consider merging them to form a big SMRT otherwise, return to the basics.
MRT Train reps: 567/568, 669/670 7083/7084, 7085/7086 857, 863

Would prefer SMRT operates all rail lines, just like what it did in HK which MTR operates all the lines. While buses will operate by SMRT, SBST or 3rd operators.
With No competition the merged company may get worse...
Filming trains and lifts since 2012.
Favourite lifts are : Mitsubishi , Express , Fujitec and Kone.
I dislike GENERIC lifts such as iFE and Ulift .

Now Alstom agreed to Bombardier Rail Division.
