For the second in a week, the first two levels of Lucky Plaza become flooded after a heavy rain on Wednesday (July 8) evening. One of the only two passenger lifts in the 34 year old Orchard Road shopping centre was not working because water has seeped into the lift.
According to a mobile shop manager, the ceiling always leak severely when it rains. His mobile shop was badly affected and many of his mobile phones are drenched by the leakage resulting him having to sell them at half price. Most shops in the first two levels were severely affected by the ceiling leakage that the floor at some areas were waterlogged.
In 2013, Lucky Plaza built a 150m long automatic flood barrier system after repeated flooding at Orchard Road in 2010 and 2011.
