Cracks appearing on homes near the station

The Land Transport Authority has taken steps to repair damages to at least 40 Watten Estate homes, believed to be linked to the construction of the Downtown Line. Residents of the terraced and semi-detached houses at Bukit Timah complained that they began noticing hairline cracks in walls inside and outside their homes between July and August 2012. They added that cracks began widening in those weeks. Besides cracks, some car porch roofs and walls had shifted, and some gates could no longer open. The houses in the upscale neighbourhood where home prices start in the millions, are across from the site of the upcoming Tan Kah Kee MRT station. Checks were made by LTA and the houses were found to be structurally safe.[1]

Art in Transit

Gratitude and Resilience by Hwa Chong Institution are artworks inspired by Tan Kah Kee's remarkable philanthropic legacy and to reflect on what it means to give back to society. The latter reflects on what it means to be resilient in times of hardship.
