Wish list for improving quality of urban life

(By Noel Achariam, 1/2/2012)
New Straits Times: Streets took a survey among the following community leaders to find out their wish list for City Hall:
Lim Lip Eng, Segambut MP
"I hope that City Hall will look into providing free shuttle buses for the public, linking the main rail stations, car parks, shopping areas and businesses in the city.
"The move will be able to reduce traffic congestion and promote public transport.
Lim also called for the city council to establish a potholes patrol team to monitor all major roads in and around the city.
"City Hall officers would be best suited to patrol the various areas on motorbikes to spot the potholes and take the necessary action," he said.
Lim also wants City Hall to come up with a policy that looks into expanding urban green areas.
"We would like to see more green areas. We would also like City Hall to take stern action against environment polluters," he said.
Lim also wished City Hall an early success on the implementation of the River of Life project.
