All 3 lifts at an Ang Mo Kio block are defective, requiring “lift attendants” to be present 24/7


Visitors to Block 352 Ang Mo Kio Street 32 will find a “lift attendant” at each of the three lifts at the 30-storey block, after all the lifts began malfunctioning from Sunday morning, 10 Dec.

It appears that the lift landing button on each floor has ceased working. Due to this, lift attendants are made to sit inside the lift compartments so they can manually press the ‘open’ button for those who wish to use the elevators. These attendants are posted on a shift basis and are on duty 24 hours a day.

Handwritten signs pasted at the lift inform residents and visitors, “Calling button is temporarily out of order. Please wait for the lift attendant to serve you. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.”

One resident, Mr Pan, revealed: “I live on the 27th floor and had to climb down the stairs to go to work on Sunday. When I came home, there was a worker inside the lift who activated it to help me enter.”

Ang Mo Kio Town Council is helmed by parliamentarians Darryl David, Ang Hin Kee, Intan Azura Mokhtar, Gan Thiam Poh, Lam Pin Min, Koh Poh Koon. It is anchored by the head of government, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, himself.


  1. One of the most badly cared estates from upgrading to existing facilities. Town council never action on feedback. Construction materials are left on rooftop after work is done.

  2. Like that AMK’s TC still can win green rating for lift operating & maintenance. Someone must be very kelong and sleeping in his PMO (safe haven) & heavily guard meet the people session once a month only !

  3. So happy for the 70%.. now they get ‘personalised lift service’ Must be because LHL heads the ward and wants only the best for his loyal constituents! Perhaps he will order the complete shut down of lifts in his ward for a week or two (similar to the MRT) to necessitate much needed maintenance 🙂

  4. What a bunch of clown. Machine break down got to do with who we vote. It can happen to anyone everywhere. Please use all sensible things to speak against the goverment and not use such stupid excuse. make us 30% look stupid that we cannot come out clever thing to hit out against the goverment. Plese do not disgrace us 30% anymore.

  5. you mean PM Pinky was not at his post?!!! And he is the highest paid politician in the known universe???!!!! Why don’t they fire this overpaid and useless lift attendant?

  6. If the PM can’t get his town council to rectify and do the remedy work ASAP, the rest please pray hard for your HDB lifts to function properly and safely!

  7. Really competent with the what salary….millions of dollars for such work attitude….very productive….thanks to the citizens who vote for such ministers & prime minister….PAP is no longer the previous PAP…wake up people…still dreaming….I thought only pay peanuts than u get monkey…I didn’t know millions is peanuts to these ministers….
