PUNGGOL: A recent video uploaded to TikTok shows a bus stop in Edgedale Plains not link to a sheltered walkway that is just behind the bus stop.
Part of the video was recorded during a downpour and most likely commuters will have to run/walk a short distant in the rain to reach the nearby sheltered walkway. It may be dangerous as the ground may be slippery due to the rain.
Both the stairs to the shelter is exposed to the rain in the video and a ramp for the wheelchair is also not covered.
In the video the videographer can be heard repeating “What’s the point?”.
What is the point of behind the question?
