PD road­work a dan­ger to mo­torists

New Straits Times - - News -

THE lack of warn­ing sig­nages near a road work­site in Jalan Lukut near Port Dick­son has be­come a nui­sance to mo­torists, said Roadie.

“There are no warn­ing signs to show that work is be­ing car­ried out. At night, that stretch of road is dark. The con­trac­tors should in­stall spot­lights in the work area.

“Just 20m from the site is a petrol kiosk. Just imag­ine what would hap­pen if there was an ac­ci­dent and a tanker lorry fer­ry­ing liq­ue­fied gas crashed into the petrol kiosk.”

Roadie said there was only one main trunk road lead­ing to Port Dick­son, and this was used by hun­dreds of lor­ries and buses.

He said it seemed work had stopped for a more than a month, in­con­ve­nienc­ing many mo­torists.

It is learnt that the road­work was car­ried out to in­stall a cul­vert to mit­i­gate flash floods.
