Some areas of the columbarium are closed for essential works. The lifts located near Block B and D continue to remain operational. However, there will be no lift access to occupied niches in C1 and M1 highlighted due to an expansion in hoarding around the link bridge to provide a larger safety buffer for ongoing works. These blocks can continue to be accessed via stairs.
