The Housing Development Board (HDB) will be carrying out improvement works to all void deck columns of older HDB apartment blocks as part of pro-active maintenance measures for such blocks. These measures may include repairs to spalling concrete and other defects, if any.
The improvement works will be carried out at the HDB apartment blocks in Eunos Constituency in year 2010 listed below :-
i. Blk 616 Bedok Reservoir Road
ii. Blk 621 Bedok Reservoir Road
iii. Blk 627 Bedok Reservoir Road
iv. Blk 628 Bedok Reservoir Road
v. Blk 629 Bedok Reservoir Road
Typically, the works at each block will take about two to three weeks to complete. This depends on the total number of columns at the block and whether there is a need to relocate/reinstate some existing facilities such as switchboard and telecom trunking.
The works will be carried out at the void decks. Residents of the affected blocks will be informed in advance via a notice which will be displayed on the block’s notice board. During this period, the HDB appointed contractor will ensure minimum inconvenience.
