A sewer pipe located under a newly-completed HDB block has burst, leaving residents shocked and pinching their noses. I mean, who wouldn't, after just looking and thinking about it?
The Nee Soon Town Council was notified and workers were observed washing the lift lobby thrice over a period of two days. A separate team was seen repairing the broken pipe. Although residents were informed to not use their washrooms, which in itself was a highly unrealistic demand, some of them inevitably did. The subsequent human waste that was pouring out interrupted repairs, but was swiftly concluded in 50 minutes by the repair team.
