    that bridge is at toa payoh central and connected to balestier.
    (boon teck road to be exact)

    Actually residents staying at boon teck road tends to cross the bridge..
    But becoz at night...itz quite dim....and not many ppl walk pass...so tendency of
    robbing or molesting is quite high.

    Morever, the expressway is nearby...even you SCREAM for help..also can't hear.


    i know...coz my ex. used to stay there...and i always advise her to be more careful.

    In the old days they call this "buku sign" ( book signing). Either due to some security reason, request put in by some organisation that require often police visits...etc

    For example an area that has one too many criminal activities or break ins or security breach.. So more police visit are requested, ordered and thus they will put a box with a booklet there so that police deployed to that sector that day or shift will have to go there patrol the place for a set duration and then take out the booklet and sign that they visited the place and write remarks like situation normal, time of visit..etc.

    You could say this book ensure Police actually go there to patrol and/or you can say this book will proof to organisation or the senior offices that the deployed police did indeed perform constant police visits there. heheh....

    I have done more then my share of this I tell ya.... heheheh. Times have changed...in my days it was a small aluminim box. Once you are deployed to certain sector and such boxes exist, you will be given the keys so you can unlock it to take out the book to sign it. Usually for sure....homes of minister and some MPs sure have this boxes one hehehe....
    Meaning like a suggestion box?

    ANd if you are referring to that picture of the blue box at the bridge...well just look where it is over looking? the sport tracks...that could be the intended target of observation. It is actually illegal for you to go into a stadium after hours when it is closed. So maybe there had been alot of complain of noise polution, vandals...etc so they decided to make the police go visit that place more often.
    Ohhh... like scare crow effect?

    Fireman don't need red colour box one.

    All he needs is a superfast zip so that he can save small fire.
