SINGAPORE, -- Singapore's Minister for Home Affairs and Law K. Shanmugam is confident his cabinet colleague, Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan 'will sort things out', in regard to SMRT Corporation's train collision incident on Wednesday morning.

"He went into MOT (Ministry of Transport) in October 2015. Since then there have been significant improvements, building on the good work of his predecessor, Min (Minister) Lui Tuck Yew. Of especial note, Min Khaw has moved to strengthen the engineering teams," he wrote in his Facebook on late Wednesday.

Shanmugam noted that from a public perspective, all that hard work, good work, has been affected by the recent serious incidents.

Besides yesterday's incident, an MRT tunnel flooding incident had occurred along the North-South Line, disrupting train services for about 20 hours on Oct 7 and 8.
