This series of pictures is different from our usual contributions. This is not the fault of the drivers this time, but of the authorities to whom we pay $$ each month for parking; authorities who have failed to provide a safe place for the incredibly expensive motor vehicles of Singapore, even though they happily take the money to provide the parking space.

I wonder if the poor drivers now have to bear the costs for this disaster to their vehicles, as most insurance companies do not cover damage by "acts of God" even though the fault lies in the poor design of the carpark, with an inadequate or poorly designed drainage system.

Seems that this is not the first time flooding, but has happened several times in a year, with the latest on Good Friday 14 April, and Monday, 16 April 2006

Taken at Blk 146 Bedok Reservoir Road on 16 April 2006 after the recent heavy downpours.

A multi-storey car park should solve the problem. Afterall, an upper deck can't possibly get flooded with rain-water, can it? And yes, $90 a month for an MSCP season parking ticket is indeed pretty astronimical ;p

In Singapore, the relevant authorities don't give a damn to Singapore motorists. Many years ago, it was published in the Strait Times that the Govt has invested million of dollars to solve the flooding issue. See, what happened. The problem still persists. Just wondering where did all those money goes to???

Looks like these works are really the 'Acts of God', being on Good Friday & Easter Monday!!! Seems eerie!!

At least Bukit Timah experiences less flooding after the flood alleviation scheme was implemented.

I think it shouldn't be classified as 'act of god', rather, should blame on the drainage system.

Our SM, Mr GCT lives in Bukit Timah, that's why.
