Minister Khaw Boon Wan Convinced Foldable Bikes Are Warranted

5 Aug

SINGAPORE: Minister Khaw Boon Wan touched on the issue of the Brompton bikes bought by NParks.

He revealed that he recently went along with the officers while they did their inspection rounds.

He’s convinced that for the type of work the officers do, foldable bikes are warranted.

Mr Khaw said it’s the right call to buy foldable bicycles but how it’s acquired is a different story.

“You go up and down natural terrain, it was very hard on my bottoms, after just a couple of hours riding with them; and then because the park connector goes through areas which are quite remote, and sometimes you’ve got to cross the road using overhead bridge, and they have to carry the bikes with them. That’s why just now I was trying to lift these cheaper bikes which are not foldable, it’s not easy,” he explained.
