As part of the government’s plans to improve the rail network, not only will new lines be added, but existing lines will be upgraded as well. Two new lines, the Downtown Line (DTL) and the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), are currently under construction, and existing lines are receiving a refresh too; four stations will be added on the East-West Line, and one new station will be added on the North-South Line. 

The LTA has ordered a whole new batch of trains as well, scheduled to be delivered and operational from 2015 onwards. To cope with the added capacity, several stations will be revamped. Currently, Clementi, Commonwealth and Queenstown stations are undergoing upgrading, which, when completed, should equip these stations with new station entrances, more fare gates and ticketing machines. A new pedestrian link bridge will be built to supplement the existing one and to improve accessibility.

Some stations will undergo an even more radical makeover. Not dissimilar to the Jurong East Modification Project, Tanan Merah will also receive a new platform, to improve the frequency of trains heading to and from Changi Airport. The platform will be operational by 2024.

The new Audi Q7 is setting standards in the premium SUV segment. The 325kgs less weight and the low centre of mass make it extremely agile. At the same time, it is the most spacious car in its segment. Although the exterior dimensions have been reduced, it offers substantially more interior room for passengers and luggage. Its innovative assistance and infotainment systems take the SUV to the front of the pack. The efficient engines consume 26% less fuel on average.

With a weight of 1,995 kilograms (as 3.0 TDI), the new Audi Q7 is the lightest in its class. It weighs 325 kilograms less than the previous model. With its lightweight, multi-material body and an all-new chassis, it is comfortable while at the same time offering the strong performance that is typical of Audi – and that with top-notch CO2 values. Audi engineers have reduced the fuel consumption of the Q7 TDI by as much as 23%.

The first Ferrari Sergio has arrived in the United Arab Emirates.  It was delivered to its new owner, the SBH Royal Auto Gallery in the UAE during the Ferrari Finali Mondiali.  Designed by Pininfarina, just six of this incredibly limited edition roadster are being built.  The car was created to celebrate the spirit and core values of the historic Cambiano company in the 60th anniversary year of its collaboration with the Prancing Horse.

The Ferrari Sergio is a genuinely radical car.  It is both exclusive and spare in the sense that every single element aboard is focused entirely on performance.  An authentic open-top, it explicitly references the track, underscoring and intensifying its sense of sportiness, fun behind the wheel and the pleasure of design at its purest.
