The lift at our hdb flat at Bedok North Avenue 4 has been breaking down repeatedly since 2015. Each time we complained we were given lame excuses and fake assurances.

Finally out of desperation we confronted the lift technician and was told that there was a leak on the roof that keeps getting worse and is too costly to repair! We called the town council and was again given some vague assurance that a lasting solution is being instituted.

Last week by chance the lift stopped at the floor below us and to our horror we saw that the roof on top of the lift has been covered with a canvas and a pail placed in the middle to catch the leak from the rain water!

Simply aghast at how incredibly ridiculous and stupid this is. Unbelievable! (See attached pic)
