Irate over the long period of time it has been taking lift maintenance engineers to complete lift enhancement works at Block 30 Kelantan Road, a HDB flat dweller has urged fellow residents to express their displeasure to Jalan Besar Town Council and push for a faster completion date.

On Thursday (12 Dec), Facebook page All Singapore Stuff posted a picture online showing a number of messages that appear to be pasted at a HDB lift lobby, beneath a notice by Jalan Besar Town Council informing residents of the Lift Enhancement Programme (LEP).

The messages, which were written by an unnamed person, express a resident’s displeasure that the lift has not been working for 28 days. The resident stated that the elderly residents of the block are inconvenienced by how long it has been taking to complete the upgrading works.

He added that he did not see the lift maintenance engineers on site over the last week and urged fellow residents to reach out to Jalan Besar Town Council or their MP to voice their concerns over this issue:

“Everyone who is affected by this “Lift Enhancement Program” please call Jeremy at [redacted], town council at [redacted] or see MP to voice your concerns and push them for a faster completion date!

“There are many elderly folks living on this side of the block and having an LEP for 28 days during this festive season is simply NOT ACCEPTABLE.

“We have not seen any lift maintenance engineers for the last week this “LEP” has been going on. It’s always stuck on the 15th floor. I’m calling everyday.”
