LTA’s CEO Chew Men Leong has resigned, half way through his 4-year term.
Before joining LTA, Chew was the Chief of Navy from 2007 to 2011 followed with a short stint at PUB.
During his two year term at LTA, Chew presided over multiple cock-ups including the collapse of a temporary structure at the Bugis DTL worksite which killed two workers, the discovery of extensive defective trains from China and attempt to secretly ship them back to their manufacturer, and the failure to resolve the perennial problem of taxi shortages on the roads.
Chew’s resignation was understood to be unexpected with many of the LTA’s 5000 staff shock to learn about it.
