This evening (16 Aug), my SDP colleagues from the Ground Operations Unit and I visited the residents living in Blk 150 Petir Road. A resident shared with us that the lift in the middle of the block has not been repaired for more than 2 months. One resident we spoke to told us that when he called the Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council to find out when the lift would be repaired, the Town Council advised him to look for the sub-contractor responsible for the lift maintenance.
According to the residents, cleaners were seen cleaning the walls and exterior of the malfunctioned lift today, which they believed was done in anticipation of their MP Dr Vivian Balakrishnan’s visit to the block tomorrow.
We at the SDP hope that Dr Balakrishnan will be able to give the residents an adequate answer as to why the lift has been left unrepaired for the past 2 months or so.
Two days after Dr Tambyah posted this message in his Facebook the Buildings and Construction Authority said that the lift in the block is back in service.
