After checking the website multiple times, Taman Jurong’s Website went from an ‘Error 404’, to ‘THIS SITE IS UNDER MAINTAINANCE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE’.

This could have been because SingCERT (Singapore Computer Emergency Response Team) sent out an alert this afternoon regarding the issue, which likely led to the server of the site being taken down for upgrades.
