These include the use of new technology like powered stair climbers to enable wheelchair users to move up and down staircases, National Development Minister Desmond Lee said in a parliamentary reply on Wednesday (Jan 12). Over the years, HDB has adopted innovative technical solutions and conducted pilot trials to explore options to bring direct lift access to such blocks. The 15-second video shows a group of youths performing random acts such as flashing their middle finger, swinging a fake punch and running around. Some examples of solutions that have been successfully implemented include lifts that do not have a machine room at the top of the shafts and bubble lifts, Mr Lee said. This shift unleashed a wave of trends, treatments and products that have turned the brow category into something profitable and Instagram-worthy. Through these various efforts, the vast majority of the 5,300 blocks have benefited from the Lift Upgrading Programme (LUP). Reactions among netizens range from amused to baffled, with many pointing out just how random everything was. However, there remains about 150 blocks, with about 2,000 units without direct lift access, as it is not feasible to implement LUP due to high cost, or existing technical and site constraints, Mr Lee explained. After his arrest in March 2019, Collins, who had worked for the force for 18 and a half years, claimed he had viewed the images to further his knowledge of crime scenes and forensic science in order to progress his career.

"For such blocks, HDB will continue to explore new methods to bring down LUP costs and alternatives to improve accessibility for residents living in flats without direct lift access," Mr Lee said. Several also asked about the youth who 'fell' off the ledge, with one quipping,"Some say that the man is still flying though. Did you know we have about 250 hairs per eyebrow? Or that they are more active during summer? Or that your stress levels may affect their growth? Simply put, though, their purpose can be subdivided into three categories. .
