Rat problem in Pasir Ris: Our reader says rats are making nests in Pasir Ris Drive 6, and moving around Blk 441 - 444.
IT APPEARS that rats are making nests in Pasir Ris Drive 6. They are moving around Blocks 441, 442, 443 and 444, where shops, a wet market and a non-air-conditioned foodcourt are located. They can be spotted searching for food in the wet market at Block 441. I reported the matter more than 10 days ago to the Environment Ministry, and received a response last weekend asking for the same details I had already provided. On Monday, at about 6.30am, I spotted rats searching for food at the foodcourt at Block 444. Again, I reported the matter to the ministry. Why does it take so long for action to be taken? I do not want to see my estate overrun by rats.
