I've just been informed that SMRT will install half height screen doors at all above ground MRT stations soon. I've written before in the past that platform screen doors such as the ones in Hong Kong (see picture above) could be the answer to Singapore's MRT suicide problem. I'm waiting to get some official news confirmation regarding this. Will update.
Update: The $112 million contract for the job went to Singapore Technologies Electronics and will be done by 2012. ST Electronics have previously installed platform screen doors for Taiwan's Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corporation and they also did the platform gate doors for Sentosa Express.
