Two piles of sand and stone pebbles as well as a few construction materials including a wheelbarrow were seen at the scene on Wednesday.
Several workmen were also spotted taking a rest under a shed next to where the car shed used to be.
Meanwhile, a resident who was also at the scene said they decided to concrete the slope for fear of erosion.
"Many of us live down this slope and to prevent untoward incidents from happening we decided to make our own effort to concrete the slope," said the resident who didn't want to be named.
"We are not here to cause problem, we are just concerned for the safety of our family and ourselves," he said, adding that the residents came up with the funds themselves.
It was reported that the car shed was torn down after a court order requiring all structures to be removed was issued.
The order came following appeals from landowners, Foo Sae Luan and his wife, who bought the land two years ago but were unable to access their property due to the wooden structure blocking the entrance.
The car shed which was scheduled to be demolished on Feb 14, was built by residents, who appealed to the Land and Survey Department for a delay as it coincided with Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day.
On March 6, only its roof was removed after residents comprising mostly the Chinese community residing on the slope appealed for its base not to be removed, claiming that it has become a necessity for them.
However, enforcement officers had to remove the remaining structure on Monday as the court order requires all structures to be removed.
