Persevering with his mission to serve Bukit Batok, Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) chief, Chee Soon Juan highlighted another resident report on an infrastructure issue in the constituency.
Specifically, it appears that the lifts at Blk 621 in BB Central are on “autopilot”, stopping at every floor even when no one hit the button for that floor.
Sharing a video on his Facebook page on Wednesday (24 Mar) sent to Dr Chee by the resident showing the lift stopping at every floor, the veteran politician said in the caption, “Those living on the upper floors must be tearing their hair out.”
The video shows the lift door opening on the second, fifth, 13th, and 14th floors despite the button for those floors not being pressed.
The man filming the video can be heard saying, “Lift upgrading. All the three lifts are stopping on every floor, and my poor neighbour here is pressing the ‘door close’ button on every floor.”
He then urged the Jurong-Clementi Town Council (JRTC) to “get it fixed”.
