PUNGGOL DESIGN FLAW IN PARK INVITES BREEDING OF MOSQUITOES

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Some Punggol residents have voiced their displeasure recently that the small decorative area that as supposed to hold trees are actually breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Water have been collected in the area between blocks 289C and 289D at Punggol Place.

The residents have also complained that there are now more mosquitoes in the area, and these mosquitoes could have been responsible for the numerous mosquito bites on their children. This could also mean breeding ground for diseases that the mosquitoes carry, like dengue and zika.

The NEA and the Town Council have been alerted to the issue. Both have reportedly said they know of the issue, and is currently working to solve the issue. Was this a bad case of poor design concept, or both NEA and Town Council pushing the issue to each other to solve? Suggestions would be to actually make the drainage in the area better, so that water can be drained away.
