HIGHWAY CONTRACTOR FINED 2 YRS AGO FOR NOT TAKING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

The contractor in charge of building the affected highway, Or Kim Peow Construction, was fined $250,000 2 years ago for failing to take safety precautions and causing a worker's death in an accident at Yio Chu Kang flyover. In 2015, 4 workers fell when the platform they were on gave way. The accident happened because the company did not check if the platform was properly put up. At the time, the Manpower Ministry said: "This is a clear case of a company that does not take workplace safety seriously". But 2 years later, they're still using the same contractor and look what happened!

MASSIVE JAM AT PUNGGOL AND SENGKANG

This might be nothing new in Singapore, as there are jams everywhere on the expressways every morning as we head off to work.

But today I guess is a bit different. There is a massive accident at TPE near Punggol, where normally the jam is of the slow moving kind. Today, some vehicles are just stuck idling, not moving at all. This lead to many roads in Punggol and Sengkang having bottlenecks, with cars not even able to get on to the expressway. Based on newspaper reports and reports on the radio, there was an accident that led to this massive jam. The accident, which occurred on the Tampines Expressway (TPE) in the direction of Changi Airport after the Lorong Halus exit, occurred at around 6.40am. It involved three cars and two motorcycles, said a police spokesman.
