Tanjong Pagar - Dangerous Act

Tanjong Pagar Plaza
29 August 2015

Merlion Wayfarer was just at Tanning Pagar Plaza when she spotted these preparations going on for a neighobourhood dinner at the tentage nearby.

This was the walkway near NTUC. A man was hosing the entire floor near the yellow-painted low wall and busy scrubbing the entire area with a broom.

Just 1-2 metres away was this heavy bunch of wires on the ground. The wires were being connected from the electrical mains for the tentage needs of the dinner event.

Walking towards the group were a few senior citizens, some were on wheelchairs, others on crutches or holding walking sticks. They were oblivious to the wet floor, the electrical wires, and were moving too slowly to make an emergency turn when they finally noticed these hazards.

The very wet floor which a fall hazard to all passersby.
The first bunch of wires with their blue decontactors was on the floor, 
just mere steps away from a pool of water...

The second bunch of wires was still hanging from the ceiling.
A few senior citizens could be seen approaching, walking slowly.

Merlion Wayfarer hopes the authorities can take relevant action to prevent the occurrence of such dangerous acts.

The Tanjong Pagar Town Council has speedily responded to this post shared, and reminded the event organizer to ensure the safety for the event and the public.
