History[edit]

Fibre broadband disruption[edit]

On 11 June 2015 at 10.40am, nearby residents were affected by an internet outage due to construction works inadvertently damaging a section of fibre optic cables while carrying out piling works at Kim Seng Road. The disruption lasted more than eight hours and affected all the major internet service providers. In a separate statement, the Land Transport Authority apologised for the disruption.[2]

Construction accident[edit]

On 19 December 2015 at about 5.30pm, a Bangladeshi construction worker was killed when the excavator's bucket dislodged and fell on him. The victim had been guiding an excavator prior to the accident. He was taken to Singapore General Hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival.[3]
