Written Answer by Ministry of National Development on repainting multi-storey car parks

May 9, 2016

Dr Lim Wee Kiak: To ask the Minister for National Development 

(a) what is the repainting schedule for HDB multi-storey car park buildings; and 

(b) whether the repainting of the car park building is scheduled to coincide with the repainting of flats in the same precinct and, if not, what are the reasons.


Currently, Town Councils (TCs) manage the general Repair & Re-decoration (R&R) works, including repainting, for the residential blocks in their respective towns. HDB manages the R&R works for all HDB Multi-Storey Car Parks (MSCPs), and generally adopts a 7-year cycle for such works. 

It is a good idea to coordinate the R&R works for the MSCPs and residential blocks, and HDB will be happy to work out suitable arrangements with the TCs. In particular, HDB can engage the TCs to undertake the R&R works for MSCPs on its behalf, with funding provided to the TCs for this purpose. This will enable TCs to better synchronise the R&R works in their towns, achieve a more coordinated look for the precinct, and minimise inconvenience to residents. Some TCs have already taken up this arrangement, and HDB welcomes more to do so.
