Response to Dr Chee Soon Juan’s statements
Jurong-Clementi Town Council wishes to clarify on the points raised in Dr Chee Soon Juan’s flyer.
The replacement of the flooring and the installation of the canopy support structure was completed for this walkway at Block 164 Bukit Batok St 11 and further work was stopped due to the control measures put in place because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The project team had assessed that the support structure is safe and hence, we opened up the access point so that the residents can make use of the passage way conveniently and safely.
Canvas cover for barricading site damaged
This canvas cover was used to hoard works that were being carried out between Blocks 155 and 156 Bukit Batok. This canvas cover was damaged in a recent storm. On 22 Jun 2020, we instructed the contractor to replace the canvas cover. The cover was replaced in the evening of 25 Jun 2020 with safety nets. There was a delay on the part of the contractor as he did not have his full complement of workers arising from the control measures put in place because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Measures to deter mosquito breeding
The Town Council staff have been conducting checks at those areas which could be potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes. There is a weekly inspection programme and we carry out follow up actions such as misting and fogging treatment.
The fire hose reel at Block 210A
Our team ensures that the contractor diligently carries out the scheduled servicing of the fire protection systems. As an enhancement to the maintenance regime, we have installed an additional buzzer to alert our technician to turn the selector switch of the pump system to “auto-mode” once he has completed his servicing of the pumps. This will eliminate any human error.
Replacement of the letter boxes
We are currently carrying out improvement works within the precinct from Blocks 150 to 159 Bukit Batok Street 11 and the replacement of the letter boxes is one of the improvement works. In fact, the replacement of the letter boxes is currently in progress.
