Right after the ‘winter season’ decided to leave us (you’ve been good!), the water pipes around Singapore decided to gain some attention again.

This morning (Jan 16), national water agency PUB said in a Facebook post that they’ve received a report of a pipe leak at an open carpark near TripleOne at Somerset Road.

According to PUB, the report was made at 12.40am and they sent down their service crew immediately.

They closed down 3 out of 4 lanes and advised motorists to seek alternative routes if possible, Channel NewsAsia reported.

In an update later on, the lanes closed were reduced to one as repair works continue.

Not the first time

As I’ve mentioned in the beginning of this article, it’s not the first time that water pipes have caused traffic to come to a standstill.

Last September and October, four pipe leak incidents happened back-to-back.

Thoughts

Sure enough, incidents like this make Singapore a ‘lil more interesting, but then again, this is not the best thing to happen on a daily basis.

Following the “floor tiles explosion” saga, I hope everyone remains safe…

Kudos to all the workers who work round the clock to make Singapore safe!

Since you’re here, why not watch a video about a guy who lodged a Police report here in Singapore because he was friendzoned? Seriously. Here, watch it and do remember to share it (and also subscribe to Goody Feed YouTube channel)!
