IN the past three years, there have been more than 2,000 cases involving road openings and reopenings at the same spot within three weeks.

The figures represented less than two per cent of the total 116,000 utility road openings.

The Acting Secretary for Works, Mr Kwei See-kan, said the reopenings were because limited road space for excavation made it necessary for the utility works to be undertaken in several phases to maintain traffic flow.
