Piling around the traffic lights.

The Circle Line is being constructed and roads have to be diverted.

Despite all the work around it, the traffic lights pole stands tall and proud.
It still has the power to stop vehicles.

If you have cable TV at home, you should tune in tonight to Discovery Channel at 10 pm. It's showing a series call "Underground Singapore". It's about the Circle Line which the mess on this photo is about.

When completed it will be the world's longest driverless railway system. (33.3 kms)
The schedule on Discovery's website says it will repeat the same show tomorrow at 1 pm and 9 August on 6 pm.

(if you are wondering, it's not sponsored post. :-) I like watching Discovery Channel, and also Asian Food Channel. hehe)

Yeah... The world's longest automatic railway system!
So what huh?

We're so obsessed with the biggest, longest, tallest, etc... But we overlook their actual values most of the time.

Interesting! Not sure I'd want to travel that far without a driver!

It is so convenient to travel round Singapore via the MRT. You dont really have to own a car. Looking forward to the circle line so that I can just pop over to my friend's house in the west within minutes. :)
