Residents at Khatib now have improved accessibility to the public transport network, thanks to a new lift at Khatib Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) pedestrian overhead bridge.
Khatib is the first of five MRT stations to complete the lift installation at existing pedestrian overhead bridges. The remaining four are at Aljunied, Bishan, Kranji, Sengkang and Yew Tee MRT stations.
The lift links Block 838, Yishun Street 81 to Khatib MRT station.
The improvement aims to increase the convenience and accessibility for elderly residents and people with disabilities.
Launching the new lift on Sunday, MP for Nee Soon GRC, Er Dr Lee Bee Wah, said its installation is an important milestone for Nee Soon South community.
“I’m sure they will be able to roll out to more pedestrian overhead bridges which are near MRTs throughout Singapore and this will definitely benefit those who are elderly, those who are in wheelchairs,” she said.
