I joined in 1982 as a technician for the Provisional Mass Rapid Transit Authority Study. Back then, I was given the opportunity to learn and perform various roles. As a technician, I consolidated planning data from the Urban Redevelopment Authority, Housing and Development Board and Public Works Department so as to determine the potential locations of the MRT stations. I recall conducting a headcount survey at Toa Payoh where I had to observe the traffic flow of people around the area. This helped to determine where to site the exits for the Toa Payoh
MRT station.
