LTA ANNOUNCE DELAY TO BUKIT PANJANG UNDERPASS, 2 YRS AFTER SCHEDULED COMPLETION

However, the underpass, which was originally scheduled to open together with Downtown Line 2 in December 2015, have now had its opening delayed to the end of this year. An LTA spokesman said that the construction took longer than planned "due to extensive underground utilities and difficult ground conditions, such as the presence of high rock levels". The hard rocks in the path of the construction meant that some blasting had to be carried out.

This is LTA cocking up. weren't they supposed to do ground checks before works started? And by doing the checks, won't they find the hard rocks present on the ground? The rocks did not become hard overnight that it now requires blasting. Now, this delay is actually taking two years, and only now LTA is announcing this.

AVA FAILED TO CATCH SEGAR RD MONKEY FOR 2 WKS, INSTALLS CCTV INSTEAD

Five new CCTV cameras were set up in Bukit Panjang in order to help catch the troublemaking monkey. AVA said the cameras will allow them to better understand the monkey's movements and plan more effective operations.

There are around 160 reports of monkey attacks but AVA and ACRES are still trying to catch the monkey. They have no choice but to install CCTV after failing to catch one monkey for the past two weeks.

The attacks are believed to be by a single monkey which has occasionally popped by nearby schools and stole students' lunchboxes.

Do you think this is effective?

MEGA CHILD CARE CENTRES FINALLY BEING BUILT TO CATER TO RESIDENTS NEEDS

The government finally decided that they are going to build 4 new mega child care centres, for kids from 2 months old to 6 years old. The places announced where the mega child care centres are going to be built are at Sengkang, Punggol and Bukit Panjang, areas where there is a high concentration of young families.

While we applaud the move to finally have enough child care places for about 2,700 children, this certainly seems a move that was a long time coming. The mega child care centres should have been around the same time the new towns were planned, instead of waiting for too long before deciding to build one.

Currently, residents in these new towns will confirm that getting their kids places at child care centres are difficult. Some may even end up being in the waiting list for as long as one year! The government certainly did not plan this right. New towns were built, BTOs were mushrooming everywhere, but the basic amenities such as a child care was lacking.
