PUB: HDB and Jalan Besar Town Council will resolve Joo Seng estate flooding issue

After a decade, the flooding issue will soon be over for residents of Joo Seng.

HDB and JBTC should share the news and update residents on the progress. They have suffered for a decade and deserve better.

Thanks to PUB.

Mr Ng Joo Hee

CEO, PUB

Dear CEO Ng

I refer to my email to the PMO, copied to you and others, dated 3 Nov.

With reference to the highlighted issue, why has the PUB allowed flooding to affect thousands of Joo Seng residents since 10 years ago?

Doesn’t the PUB have any solution?

Or are there ongoing plans to resolve the issue which have not been disclosed to the public?

Please reply.

Thank you.

Regards

Phillip Ang
