[Singapore] They *do* listen (sometimes :-))


Happy to receive an email from the Cut Waste Panel that I think is part of the Ministry of Finance about a suggestion I had made regarding a covered walkway linking Radin Mas Primary School and the bus-stop outside the school. The walkway is lighted up at night, but the lighting up makes that short stretch (about 30 meters) the brightest spot along Bukit Purmei Avenue.

Dear Sir/Mdm,

Thank you for your suggestion.

We have noted your concerns, and are pleased to inform you that we will retrofit
and remove the alternate bulbs and circuitry to provide a more energy efficient
lighting solution for the walkway between Radin Mas Primary School and the bus
stop along Bukit Purmei Ave. We target to complete this by the end of Dec 2008.

Suggestion Subject: Lights on covered walkway

Suggestion

I refer to the walkway from Radin Mas Primary School to the bus stop along
Bukit Purmei Ave.  The walkway has too many lights on that really is not
necessary and a clever and more spread out lay out of lights would
significantly reduce the wastage.

Thanks.

Harish Pillay
