Residents in Taman Sri Sinar, Segambut, are irked by Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s (DBKL) lack of response to their complaints on a collapsed walkway near a bus stop.
The pavement at the bus stop in Jalan 6/38A collapsed due to a downpour last week, posing a danger to schoolchildren and pedestrians.
Businessman Zulkifli Yusof, 45, said the residents had forwarded numerous complaints to DBKL but no action was taken. “We do not want any accidents to happen and DBKL should act fast,” said Zulkifli.
Another resident, Patrick Hoo, 30, said the collapsed pavement at a bus stop was dangerous, especially for schoolchildren and pedestrians. Hoo said DBKL should also do something about two signboard poles that had rusted and on the verge of collpase, “The signboards are near the bus stop and posed a danger to schoolchildren,” Hoo added.
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said he had received numerous complaints from residents on the collapsed pavement. “I have told the resaidents to contact DBKL’s call centre or e-mail them. “We are disappointed with DBKL’s lack of action despite numerous complaints,” Lim said.
He added that the authority should also investigate the extent of soil erosion near the bus stop as there was a condominium nearby.
