PIC BY ZULKARNAIN AH­MAD TAJUDDIN A DAM­AGED sign­board near a school in Pengkalan Rint­ing, Tam­poi, has be­come an eye­sore.

Parts of the sign­board are miss­ing, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult for mo­torists to find their way around the area.

Kam­pung Sku­dai Kiri res­i­dent Rafiee Jaa­far, 38, urges the au­thor­i­ties to re­pair the sign­board as it has cre­ated prob­lems for mo­torists who are not fa­mil­iar with the neigh­bour­hood.

“Many peo­ple have ap­proached me to ask where the Tam­poi po­lice sta­tion is.

“Be­fore it was dam­aged, the sign­board clearly in­di­cated the di­rec­tion to the po­lice sta­tion,” said Rafiee, who is a post­man.

He said he was wor­ried that pupils from nearby SK Pengkalan Rint­ing would play with the metal sheets of the sign­board that had fallen to the ground.

“I hope the Jo­hor Baru City Coun­cil will re­pair it soon as the dam­aged sign­board can pose a dan­ger to pedes­tri­ans who walk past the struc­ture,” he said.

An­other res­i­dent Kadir Su­laiman, 56, said the sign­board re­flected badly on the im­age of the city.
