Nee Soon GRC MP Lee Bee Wah urged the govt to further strengthen Singapore's social infrastructure. She said the traffic flow will have to be more efficiently managed, and the size of bus stops and their locations reviewed. The network of main and arterial roads should also be reviewed to ensure an efficient traffic flow. On housing, Dr Lee called on HDB to build more 3Gen flats and studio apartments. She also asked the govt to give more help to those who want to buy a flat, especially first timers, divorcees with children, and senior citizens.
