Orchard Road Floods

February 10, 2012 by staff 

Orchard Road Floods, Businesses in Orchard Road have welcomed PUB’s latest drainage improvement projects, especially the efforts to increase Stamford Canal’s flow capacity.

But some are worried the measures may not come quick enough. Parts of Orchard Road – like the basement of Lucky Plaza and Liat Towers – have in recent years been victims of flash floods during intense thunderstorms.

The most recent flooding took place just last month. To reduce such occurrences, national water agency PUB is carrying out improvement works at Stamford Canal, which serves the flood-hit Orchard Road area.

PUB will line the walls of the canal with a polymer coating to reduce friction and increase water speeds.
