We refer to Mr Xu Fa Chu’s letter “An Uneven Road” (Lianhe Zaobao, 23 June 2014).
Based on our records, Mr Xu is referring to a stretch of Serangoon Road where SP Powergrid Ltd (SPPG) is carrying out utility works. In order to allow that stretch of road to be re-opened to traffic before the daily peak hour, the excavated area is temporarily reinstated at the end of every work day. For such temporary reinstatements, SPPG is required to ensure that the reinstated road level is satisfactory and we will remind SPPG and their contractor to do so. Final reinstatement of the affected traffic lanes should also be completed within three weeks of the completion of all utility works.
Motorists are also advised to drive carefully along the stretch of affected road during this period.
We thank Mr Xu for his feedback.
