ERO­SION EAT­ING AWAY AT PARK­ING BAYS

New Straits Times - - News -

PARK­ING bays near a row of shop­houses in Jalan Tun Is­mail, Kuan­tan, are be­ing eaten away by ero­sion.

The front of the park­ing lanes are eroded, with soil and tar crum­bling into a drain.

Me­chanic Mo­hamad Fir­daus Mo­hamad Waz­eri, 18, said the prob­lem started three years ago and had wors­ened re­cently.

“Ini­tially, the ero­sion af­fected only two park­ing bays, but now, 10 lanes are dam­aged by the ero­sion.”

He said there were in­ci­dents where cars and lor­ries park­ing there had skid­ded into the drain.

“I hope ac­tion is taken be­fore the sit­u­a­tion be­comes more se­vere.”

Fir­daus said the drain could also be­come blocked by the soil

and tar fall­ing into it.

ACTIONLINE:

A Kuan­tan Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil (MPK) said it took note of the com­plaint and would look into the mat­ter.

“We will take ac­tion im­me­di­ately,” he said, con­firm­ing that the park­ing bays fell un­der MPK’s ju­ris­dic­tion.
