The worst hit was Upper Serangoon Road next to Woodsville Flyover. Flood waters there took an hour and 15 minutes to subside due to ongoing road works. Parts of Little India like Norris Road, Kampong Kapor and Owen Road were also partially submerged, as were Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5, the junction of Jalan Peminpin and Bishan Street 21 and the slip road from KJE to Woodlands Road. Water in these areas subsided in 10 to 15 minutes, said PUB. The water agency said it is investigating the floods. It has an ongoing drainage improvement project to alleviate flooding in Little India. The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2013.
