Torque (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

C.M. FOK  Here’s some­thing for your con­sid­er­a­tion, from a faith­ful reader of Torque. With the im­pend­ing move to­wards “Car-lite Sin­ga­pore”, how would Torque re­main rel­e­vant and sus­tain its cir­cu­la­tion?

As trans­port evolves, there prob­a­bly won’t be a sim­ple an­swer, but it is not too early to give it a thought. In my hum­ble opin­ion, Torque could be­come a pub­li­ca­tion em­brac­ing all modes of trans­porta­tion be­sides cars.

For in­stance, there’s an up­ward trend in peo­ple’s en­thu­si­asm for cy­cling, with a quan­tum leap in bi­cy­cle shops sell­ing bikes that cost a five-fig­ure sum. Also, it’ll be in­ter­est­ing to know more about the many types of buses ply­ing our roads – makes, mod­els and the me­chan­ics of things, such as hy­draulic sus­pen­sions that raise/lower the bus as it moves off or stops.

Torque can be a pub­li­ca­tion that is con­nected to the re­al­i­ties of dif­fer­ent trans­port modes in this Red Dot and slightly be­yond.
