Burst pipe causes stench at Orchard underpass

Tang Plaza's basement food market had to be evacuated yesterday when a pipe burst, sending the smell of human waste through the underpass.

One commuter said she could smell the stench all the way from the station control at Orchard MRT.

About 20 people had to be evacuated after the pipe burst at around 2pm near Tang Marketplace, said a mall spokesman.

The Orchard MRT underpass exit to Scotts Road, and all other routes to the basement from the ground floor had to be cordoned off.

Dense crowds formed when shoppers were diverted to the only other exit outside the front entrance of Tangs department store.

Engineers and sewage trucks were deployed to repair the pipes, and a Tangs spokesman said an overnight operation had also been launched to clean up the basement.

At around 4pm, guests that The Straits Times spoke to at the Marriott Hotel said they could still smell the stench.

On September 5, a section of stores at Ion Orchard shopping mall was closed off due to a waste-water leak.

Stores affected included luxury brands Louis Vuitton and Dior.

Tangs Market re-opens after cleanup from sewage flooding

Tangs Market re-opens after cleanup from sewage flooding

By Monica Kotwani
Posted: 14 September 2011 2019 hrs


SINGAPORE : Tangs Market has re-opened to the public after it was closed for two days for cleanup work.


Section of underpass remains closed

It was flooded by sewage water from a burst pipe on Monday afternoon.

Some stall operators at Tangs Market that Channel NewsAsia spoke with reported a slow day in business Wednesday.

They said sales were down by about 30 per cent, compared with a normal day.

But they expect business to pick with the evening traffic.

There are about 20 food stalls in the market.

The escalator connecting Tangs Market to Orchard MRT Station is in operation but the underpass leading to Shaw House remained closed as at 6pm Wednesday.

Singapore's Land Transport Authority (LTA) said ventilation and lights in the underpass have been fixed.

Although the air-conditioning is still down, LTA expects to re-open the underpass at 9pm on September 14.

"We're going to Lido Shaw, but we couldn't walk here because of the blockage. I think there's some construction going on. So we'll be heading towards ION instead," said one member of the public.

"(It's) very inconvenient because we went up and it (underpass) was blocked, and now it's blocked as well," said another.
