Seconds for Mr Singh, the activation of the screening center has affected residents living in Jalan Damai, in the Eunos Room of Aljunied GRC, particularly those on Blk 662-664.
He noted that HDB service roads near their blocks have been congested by vehicles, workers, and so on. Although enforcement operations have been carried out against stray drivers, he claimed they were opportunistic and sporadic.
Singh added this there is also the concern of many workers walking to and from the projection center through the empty roofs of their blocks.

“In view of the feedback, small trucks have been diverted to the control center to park after boarding / disembarking workers from today.
“HPB is also looking to deploy more traffic commissioners to better control traffic while maintaining security considerations for detection center users and, in doing so, reduces the possibility of congestion and illegal parking on the Blk 662-664,” he said. detail.
Singh added that the HPB team is also studying alternative parking options at the BNSS site that require some site preparation, in order to contain activities within the selection center as far as possible.
“For the residents of Jalan Damai, I know it has been a difficult two weeks so far, especially with many of you working from home,” he acknowledged.
Singh went on to ask residents to understand the situation, assuring that the HPB team is doing everything possible to reduce the inconvenience to everyone.
“However, send me your comments at any time to [email protected] and I will do my best and work with the agencies involved to make things better, ”he concluded.
