由来

设立轻轨列车的主要目的是为新镇的居民服务,作为连接地铁站的交通工具。1999年首个无人驾驶的轻轨列车服务在武吉班让(Bukit Panjang)推出,2003年与2005年添加另外两条轻轨服务路线,分别在盛港(Sengkang)与榜鹅(Punggol)运行。

ETYMOLOGY

The Light Rail Transit (LRT) was constructed to serve the transportation needs of commuters in new towns and connecting passengers to the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stations. In 1999, the first unmanned LRT service was launched in Bukit Panjang. Two other LRT lines in Sengkang and Punggol were opened for passenger service in 2003 and 2005 respectively.

例句

两列车厢昨天下午发生故障,导致武吉班让轻轨列车线服务一度中断两小时,90名乘客受影响,许多人细雨中走湿滑的轨道,有人撑伞,有人抱小孩,还有人推婴儿手推车。(《联合晚报》,20/5/2018)

SAMPLE SENTENCE

Two faulty trains disrupted the Bukit Panjang LRT service for two hours yesterday afternoon, with 90 passengers affected. Many of them were forced to walk on the wet and slippery track in the drizzle. Some held umbrellas, some carried young children and others even walked with prams. (Lianhe Wanbao, 20/5/2018)
