Thomson-East Coast Line and Cross Island Line

Deputy Group Director, HENRY FOO

"I took my kids on a ride on the Circle Line and as we passed the Dhoby Ghaut stretch, I could tell them : ‘Papa was involved in this.’ As a project engineer [then], I’ve gotten to see and do every aspect of creating a line. Over the typical project cycle of seven years to deliver an MRT system, you can proudly tell people that you have seen the entire journey.”





“The work in LTA is challenging and meaningful. I’ve learned to see things from stakeholders’ perspectives, how to manage their expectations, and to be analytical and strategic in crafting public policies. Even when times get tough, the passion and commitment many of my colleagues put into their work inspires me. I am also impressed by the diversity of work in LTA that makes all the difference to the lives of commuters.”

Executive Engineer, JAMES HAN

“LTA has put in place a competency development framework to grow and groom junior engineers, which helps me be an active participant in directing my career growth over time. I recently attended a Railway Professional Programme conducted by MTR in Hong Kong, and was attached to the contractor’s office to understand their fault analysis process and witness overseas factory acceptance tests.”

Rolling Stocks Project

Project Engineer, EDMUND LEE

"I was certain that I wanted to join LTA, where the work is truly something I can relate to everyday. What we do is extremely meaningful and I believe that many of us are truly passionate about our jobs. The complex and diverse nature of the work in LTA, in both engineering and non-engineering roles (such as policy or planning), certainly offers an exciting and enriching experience which calls for tenacity and rigour."

Assistant Manager, TAN MIN YEE

"The Active Mobility Unit has an extremely young and vibrant culture, and I have lots of fun with my colleagues. We regularly organise “cycle to work” days where the team will get together and ride to work. Beyond my departments, other LTA officers I have worked with have been passionate and dedicated to their work, inspiring me to persevere whenever I face challenges."

Yolanda Zhang
