SINGAPORE: Parts of the Ulu Pandan Park Connector, which was closed two days ago by landslides, have reopened, the National Park Service (NParks) said on Sunday (4 September).
However, the park junction (between Boon Lay Way and Clementi Road) near the Clementi crash site remains closed.
This is due to “ongoing and planned recovery and remediation work, as well as potential flood risk,” NParks said in a Facebook post.
The park junction across this stretch from Clementi Road to Commonwealth Avenue West is now open.
A landslide occurred Friday morning at the construction site of the Clementi Northark Build to Order (BTO) flat.
According to the Housing Development Board (HDB), it caused “soil movement” in Sungai Ulu Pandan and damaged the Ulu Pandan Park Connector. A passerby was slightly injured.
NParks said it will work with the country’s water authority, PUB, to “closely monitor rain forecasts and water levels in canals and, if necessary, temporarily close park connections.”
In another Facebook post on Sunday, PUB urged members of the public not to use the Ulu Pandan Park Connector during heavy rain.
“When flooding occurs, stay on higher ground and avoid walking through flood waters,” PUB said.
