PIPE BURST SENT CEMENT FLYING INTO CARS, LUCKY NO ONE HURT

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Was the safety of road users compromised when a pipe burst at the construction site of the extension of the Raffles Hospital wing, and threw wet cement and pieces of concrete onto the road? News report indicated that at least one driver, with his family inside the car was driving when his car was hit.

Thankfully, no one was injured inside that car, which had stopped at a traffic junction of Victoria Street and Ophir Road. His car was badly scratched and covered with patches of cement. Other cars were not so lucky. Some had their rear windscreen completely smashed. It was lucky that no one got hurt in this incident.

How could something as dangerous as this happen? Hope the authorities will conduct investigation and punish the relevant parties, if indeed, this was negligence on their part.
