SINGAPORE: Renovations at popular downtown hawker centre Lau Pa Sat, which were scheduled to be completed in November, have been delayed.
MediaCorp understands the renovations are still in their initial stages, and no completion date has been given.
It is understood that the delay is due to the need for repair works on underground water pipes and drainage systems at Lau Pa Sat, and the actual renovation of the building has yet to commence.
Shop owners MediaCorp spoke to said they have stopped their operations for almost four months already.
They said the latest delay was not clearly communicated to them, and has disrupted business plans. - CNA/gn
