Anti-flood measures for Kovan market area

Anti-flood measures for Kovan market area

SINGAPORE: The Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC) has met with the Housing Development Board (HDB) to address flash flooding issues in the Kovan market area during heavy downpours. HDB said they will begin improvement works to the Kovan Market's car park in the second quarter to prevent water from flowing into the market. The works are expected to be completed by the fourth quarter. As an interim measure, the Town Council is constructing a retaining wall to better regulate the flow of water at the car park. They will also be stepping up maintenance efforts like sweeping the car park on a more regular basis and more frequent clearing of silt and debris from the drains and adjoining sump pit.
