STOMPer Weak heart noticed many black and yellow poles lining a corridor located at Mayo Street/Jalan Besar, and worries that the fragile-looking poles might give way.
"These pictures were taken at Mayo Street and Jalan Besar. Rochor MRT station is now under construction and there is much digging and noise along Sungei Road and Rochor Canal Road.
"I was walking along the corridors of these shops and I spotted a huge array of vertical poles painted in black and yellow. As I walked. I could feel the ground vibrating as though there was an impending earthquake.
"I wonder if it is safe for pedestrians to walk near the shops with these poles as they look fragile and may give way any time."
