Dear PM Lee

I refer to my email dated 4 Jan (attached).

Please be informed that the ponding issue at Elias Mall (Pasir Ris) has finally been resolved with the construction of additional drainage (images below).


Thank you and have a nice day.

Dear PM Lee

Most municipal issues are easily resolved.  Unfortunately, ‘grassroots members’ and those responsible prefer to turn a blind eye because they are never held accountable.

For example, the issue of ponding at Elias Mall (see images below) in Pasir Ris was highlighted in 2019 but action has yet to be taken.  
Date taken: 1 January 202120210101_132022.jpg20210101_132046.jpg

Despite the obvious danger to mall users, many elderly, the relevant authority prefers to leave safety to chance.


This issue could have been easily resolved by channeling the rainwater into the nearby drain. If the relevant authority is still clueless, it could consult PUB experts.

Should an accident occur, the relevant authority must be held accountable for negligence.

Thank you and Happy New Year.
