According to the latest news from Straits times, certain BTO will not be completed on time and may be delayed for up to 9 months!
A Couple who was supposed to be collecting their keys for their flat in Bukit Batok last month have to wait till the start of next year. Their BTO is West Plains @ Bukit Batok. They mentioned that they were initially excited about moving to their new home and even shopped for furniture and placed a deposit with an interior company. However, upon hearing the news of having to delay their key collection, they can’t help but feel disappointed.
Even though construction have resumed gradually ever since phase 2, many of the companies still have to adhere to the measures and strict regulations before they can begin their work.
The 9 months delay is due to several reasons like
- disruption in supply of precast materials from overseas
- the availability of manpower
- ability of contractors to meet the safety regulations
As of July, HDB has given an update ono 3 BTO projects – all of which supposed to be completed in 2nd quarter of the year
West Plains @ Bukit Batok
- 4/9 blocks have been completed, 65% of the homeowners have collected their keys and the rest will be collecting in Sept and Oct 2020.
- Remaining 5 blocks will be delayed up till 9 months – tentatively till next year due to unforeseen circumstances
SkyParc @ Dawson
