IMPROVEMENTS IN BEDOK AFTER NCMP DENNIS TAN FIGHTS FOR THEM IN PARLIAMENT

Kudos to NCMP Dennis Tan Lip Fong for suggesting to build a better footpath for Bedok residents! Earlier, he raised the issue in Parliament to Minister Ng Chee Meng to widen the footpath along Bedok North Avenue 4. He proposed the idea after seeing that there are many pedestrians, cyclists and e-scooters there and saw the need to make things convenient for residents.

The improvement works, which have recently started, will include the area opposite St Anthony's Canossian Secondary School and Fengshan SMC. If completed, the footpath will be at least 2 times wider and will definitely add to a safer environment.

The rat problem has reared its ugly head in Bedok North again. This time, the "beneficiaries" of the Town Council's incompetence are residents of Blk 551 at Bedok North Ave 1 who have been battling fearless rodents for over six months. Residents there reported that these rats are so fearless that they scamper around in broad daylight unafraid of humans. One resident even found the seat and wire of his motorcycle chewed up by a rat.

WOMAN LETS BOY SHIT IN PUBLIC DESPITE COFFEE SHOP TOILET NEARBY

I saw this woman allowing her child to do his business out in the open at a grass patch between Block 521 and 522 of Bedok North yesterday (Nov 14). It is inappropriate to do so, especially since coffee shops and a McDonald's outlet are just opposite this area. People are constantly walking past this area and I personally feel it is inappropriate as toilets are available just opposite the road in various kopitiams and even a McDonald's outlet.
