THE JALAN Mission is still very bad due to many complaints on its non completion after a long delay. In spite of some work carried out to patch up the pot holes and broken road surfaces, and a long section of the road has collapsed seriously, causing half of the road settled almost 2 feet deep.
This road is continuing to be the headache for many people who use this road regularly. They filed the complaint to the Sabah DAP Kudat Branch and the branch chairman Alex Wong brought the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Hiew King Cheu to check on the condition of the road during his visit here in Kudat.
The inspection saw the road is definitely in a poor stage and many portion of the road surface without asphalt. The worst part is that there is a long section of about two hundred feet had collapsed even the road is completed.
There is no warning signage about the collapsed section, and it is dangerous during night hours. The people said that they couldn’t understand why the JKR can’t complete the road and do a proper job. So many Ministers had visited here but they see no result and don’t know when this road can be completed.
The KK MP Hiew King Cheu said this is truly a case of negligence on the part of JKR and the government as a whole. He also couldn’t understand why the authorities took so long to get a simple job completed.
Someone must be able to give an explanation, and may be the Minister of Infrastructure Development Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kittingan can do so. We see that he had failed in many occasions and locations on his duty as a minister. He should show some commitment in getting the job done up in full and not making excuses here and there. The people should not suffer due to his inability to do his job.
The JKR must make it a point to complete the road soonest possible. Better change the contractors if they are no good and cannot do their job. (DAP Media)
