Food centres at Bedok cleaned, ending NEA-AHPETC dispute
SINGAPORE: Stall holders at two food centres in Bedok are satisfied with their surroundings, now that the higher areas have been cleaned, putting to an end to the dispute between the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC). Cleaning works started on Monday for the food centre at Block 511, Bedok North Street 3, as well as Block 630, Bedok Reservoir Road, and were completed by Friday. Block 511 was cleaned from 24-28 June and Block 630 was cleaned from 24-26 June. The two food centres were at the centre of a war of words between the NEA and AHPETC over cleaning arrangements for the high areas such as ceiling pipes. Channel NewsAsia understands that for Block 630, only the lower areas were cleaned, as the cleaning schedule for the high areas is slated for October. The town council said the date may be brought forward.
