A concrete sunshade was partially dislodged and left balancing on the exterior of Block 201E, Tampines Street 23 yesterday morning. One end of the sunshade, on the fourth floor of the block, crashed down onto a sunshade on the floor below. While the incident was dramatic, it did not affect the structural integrity of the building, said the Building and Construction Authority. The dislodged sunshade was later removed safely by a crane, said the Tampines Town Council. Investigations are ongoing.
