Stomper Fariz alerted Stomp to a huge tree that fell at the junction of Cavenagh Road and Thompson Road this morning (Apr 21), blocking both lanes of the road.

Said Fariz:

"We were doing a routine check of the area when we spotted a huge tree that had fallen along Cavenagh Road, blocking two lanes.

"The tree was too big for us to remove it on our own, so I informed my supervisor and he called the National Parks Board (NParks).

"Officers from NParks arrived about half an hour later and they used a chainsaw to cut the tree into a few pieces before leaving it by the roadside.

"Police officers also helped to direct traffic."
