The erection of designated smoking points is a project spearheaded by Lee to make an overall shift towards a cleaner community, with cleaner air.

A total of 50 of these smoking points were set up by the end of 2017.

The 3m by 3m sheds are located on grassy patches and are conveniently located near the flats, while still being not too close-by.

Every three blocks in the 147-block Nee Soon South estate has about one designated smoking point for use.

While Nee Soon South is not a non-smoking zone for now, those caught smoking in covered linkways, walkways and pedestrian overhead bridges may be liable to a fine of up to S$1,000, under National Environment Agency regulations.

Ho Ching’s presence caused much speculation from netizens who wondered why she was walking the ground all of a sudden. /TISG
