The roof of the overhead bridge that links Wilkie Edge and Peace Centre on Wednesday broke following the Tuesday night’s torrential downpour accompanied by a storm and has forced the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) to close Sophia Road.
The roof metal peeled off following. Mr Rilesh Ravindran, a sales executive who works at Peace Centre, explained that the incident happened just a few minutes to midnight. The 29-year-old immediately informed the police.
On Wednesday at 12.50pm the road was still cordoned off and at least three police cars and five law-enforcement officers were at the scene. Pedestrians were warned to stay away from the area. No injuries were reported in the incident.
