How long does it take to install a new lift in your HDB block?
If conditions are ideal, it would take less than a year.
But because lift upgrading is done for several blocks at the same time, and they have to be built at the same pace, it can take up to two years or more to complete, say contractors.
They say it is more efficient doing it this way than completing lift upgrading one block at a time.
The issue was raised in Parliament earlier this month.
