On New Year's Day, at around 1pm, I saw a young man slip and fall down the stairs leading to bus stop No. B04 in Bukit Batok West Avenue 5, just in front of the Bukit Gombak MRT station.
This happened even though the man had been walking slowly. It had been raining and the floor was slippery.
This was not the first time such an incident happened at that location. In fact, I have witnessed such accidents at the same stairs many times.
Some good Samaritan has even placed a warning sign at the staircase, telling people to walk more carefully. But such accidents still occur.
I hope the authorities can resurface the slippery staircase with some non-slip material, so as to prevent another accident.
