Cracks on a wall at a void deck in Tampines are likely to have been caused by years of rubbish chute flushing and have since been sealed, said the town council.

Stomper Thomas had noticed the cracks near the rubbish chute area at Block 930 Tampines Street 91 and shared photos taken on June 29.

Expressing shock over the large cracks, Thomas wrote in a post in Stomp's Facebook group: "How long did it take for the cracks to become so big?"

In response to a Stomp query, a spokesman for Tampines Town Council said it has deployed its contractors and they have sealed the cracks on the wall.

The spokesman added: "We have been monitoring the case and concluded that the cracks could be caused by years of rubbish chute flushing.

"The safety of residents is our top priority, and we will continue to monitor the situation closely.

"A more thorough repair work will be carried out in the coming planned Repairs & Redecoration."
