Collapse of ceiling: Jem closure worries shoppers
Jem mall remained closed yesterday following the ceiling collapse, as shoppers wondered: Is the building safe?
The Jurong East shopping centre is likely to be shut for a week at most in the wake of Wednesday's accident, experts estimate.
Meanwhile, MP Ang Wei Neng said constituents were worried about potential hazards at Jem - which has already suffered two fires and had its opening delayed due to a lack of safety permits.
"I am concerned that there was some rush to open the mall," he said. "They may have taken some short cuts."
