Henry Thia's twin brother and most times Transport Minister, Khaw Boon Wan announced that Singapore's MRT network is on its way to meet the target for reliability, with the number of train delays and faults reduced. This announcement was made during the 7th Joint Forum on Infrastructure Maintenance. 

In his speech, he said that during the first three quarter of 2018, the MRT network underwent 660,000 train km between any delays, compared to 180,000 train km for the whole of last year. 

However, Singaporeans are not impressed. Most opined that the praising of the reliability of the train was suspiciously timed to coincide with the news that transport fares are going up again. While Khaw have been saying that the reliability have improved, on the ground, commuters noted that the delays are as frequent as before. The only difference was probably the delays were for less than 5 minutes, whereas the measurement that Khaw used is measured for delays of more than 5 minutes.
