Minister for Sustainability and the Environment and also Member of Parliament for Yuhua SMC, Grace Fu, recently wrote a post and uploaded it onto her Facebook page with regards to the expansion of the car park exit at a car park to a famous hawker centre in her constituency.
The said famous hawker centre, located at Block 254 Jurong East St 24, had only one exit lane for a long time and this had caused inconvenience due to the congestion of vehicles at the area during peak hours and weekends.
Ms Fu shared that the community leaders had worked with the Housing and Development Board (HDB) to expand the exit with an additional egress lane.
The project took longer than the expected time frame due to underground services needed to be diverted.
In her post, she also shared that she is glad that the egress lane has been completed together with the electronic parking system (EPS) since 18 Jan 2022.
Here is the post by Ms Fu
“Our community leaders worked with HDB on the long-standing issue of congestion at the entrance of car park to our popular hawker centre (254) and shops at Jurong East St 24 to expand the exit, with an additional egress lane. As underground services have to be diverted, the project took longer than the norm.
Glad that the egress lane has been completed with the Electronic Parking System implemented since 18 Jan 2022. Hopefully this will greatly ease the congestion, especially at peak hours and weekends.”
