ZINC PARTITION BLOCKS WALK­WAY

New Straits Times - - News -

A WALK­WAY at Jalan 1/64D, Chow Kit, is for pedes­tri­ans but it has since been blocked by zinc par­ti­tions.

SHANI said this has forced pedes­tri­ans to walk along the busy road.

Pedes­tri­ans have to take a peek around the par­ti­tions in case of on­com­ing traffic be­fore they can step out into the road.

“Even mo­torists find it dif­fi­cult to drive as they have to be care­ful not to knock into pedes­tri­ans.

“Some­times, peo­ple sud­denly come out from be­hind the partition.

“The partition was put up with­out an ad­e­quate as­sess­ment on the risks to public safety,” Shani said.

“There is no rea­son to cover the pave­ment.”
