PUB plans to enhance flood protection for upstream section of Bukit Timah Canal
National water agency PUB has announced it will be enhancing flood protection for the upstream section of the Bukit Timah Canal.
To do that, the PUB plans to widen and deepen the Bukit Timah 1st Diversion Canal.
This will increase drainage capacity in the Upper Bukit Timah catchment by about 30 per cent.
It's hoped this will prevent a repeat of flashfloods in the area.
The expansion will be carried out in three phases.
The first phase around Ulu Pandan Road, will start next month and will involve traffic diversions to facilitate the works.
The two bus stops and overhead bridge outside Pine Grove will also be temporarily relocated.
The entire upgrading project is expected to be completed in 2016.
