Construction for the upcoming Cross Island Line at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 is apparently so bad that residents are having to come up with desperate measures to get on with their normal lives.
One Ang Mo Kio residents says that the construction work takes place from Monday to Saturday, and can go on past till the early hours of morning.
Cranes at the site were seen still operating at 3.30am in the morning.
The construction has been going on for more than a month.
Some residents have resorted to using earplugs to fall asleep, while one particularly upset resident plonked a whole mattress in front of his window to drown out the noise.
The LTA says that work is being done to build a diaphragm wall for the Cross Island Line-Ang Mo Kio interchange.
“For safety reasons, these works must be carried out continuously to prevent any collapse of cut trench walls and ensure the stability of the surrounding ground and building structures.”
The LTA says it has informed residents of the works, and asked for their understanding.
The works are expected to be completed by the end of November.
