PUB to embark on 4 new drainage projects to prevent flooding

 National water agency PUB will go on four new drainage projects to improve protection against floods. These include projects at Marymount Road, Queen Astrid Park, Benoi Road and Wan Lee Road.

Works at Marymount Road will start this month and involves the construction of a drain which runs under the road at the junction of Marymount Road and Bishan Street 21.

The new drain will run alongside an existing one and these are expected to alleviate floods by improving the flow capacity of the drainage system serving the area.

As excavation on the road will be carried out, traffic will be diverted in stages to facilitate the construction.

The buoyant offshore market is likely to drive good order flows for Kreuz, leading to a compound annual growth rate of 15 percent for 2011-2013 fiscal year net profit, said DBS, adding that catalysts should come from new order wins in the near term.
