HDB not allowing WP GRC to turn into slum

From the constructive, nation-building ST (emphasis mine):

The HDB announced the Lift Enhancement Programme in 2016 to support town councils in equipping lifts with recommended components by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA).

The Government later said that the 10-year initiative, costing an estimated $450 million, will benefit more than 80 per cent or about 20,000 of the 24,000 lifts in HDB estates.

The programme is substantially funded by the HDB and extended to lifts which have not fulfilled all of the BCA’s recommendations and operated for less than 18 years from the start of the LEP.

Around 1,500 lifts managed by the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council will undergo the same Lift Enhancement Programme in the next 10 years, with the first batch of 180 lifts slated for upgrading in the next 15 months, a spokesman said in response to media queries.

AHTC is also adopting BCA’s list of eight recommended safety features, he said.

  1. Next 10 years. Emphasis mine. Who know if the grc will go back to pap or dissappear into air?
