BBRAeNEWS No.383 - Haphazard construction a bane to residents

Dear Residents,

It is with great sadness that we highlight the plight of our residents from Jenaris who have been forced to live with the haphazard construction of a mega-kindergarten.

Tipper lorries have been frequently double parking on residential roads to unload sand and other construction materials without proper hoarding, barriers or barricades to warn pedestrians and vehicles of the impending danger.

And truth be told, we received an email from a resident who could not avoid a lorry as it made a sudden stop by the main entrance of Jenaris, causing an accident.

This recklessness of the contractor has even caught the attention of YB Charles Santiago, who has personally requested for a meeting to follow-up with MPK on the haphazard construction.

We hope that residents will take caution and continue to highlight such unsavoury practices of contractors to BBRA and MPK so that we can put a stop to such hazardous practices. Pictures of the haphazard parking of a lorry in Jenaris appear as follows.

Residents, please beware while driving.
