Walk­way hole a dan­ger to pedes­tri­ans

New Straits Times - - News -

A GAP­ING hole on a walk­way in busy Jalan Syed Hus­sein in Kuala Tereng­ganu is a haz­ard to pedes­tri­ans and gives a bad im­age to the city.

Abang Im, a res­i­dent, said the hole posed a dan­ger to pedes­tri­ans. He said there were many peo­ple in the area as the walk­way was in front of the Kuala Tereng­ganu City Coun­cil bus ter­mi­nal.

He said he sus­pected that the walk­way had been dam­aged by driv­ers who parked their ve­hi­cles on it, thus caus­ing a crack in it.

“Pedes­tri­ans might not no­tice the hole at night. Peo­ple, es­pe­cially women in high heels, may step into the hole and in­jure them­selves.”

Abang Im high­lighted the prob­lem of rub­bish be­ing dumped in Jalan Syed Hus­sein, which is near the coun­cil’s head­quar­ters at Me­nara Per­mint. He said this tar­nished the im­age of the city, es­pe­cially when the state was hold­ing its Visit Beau­ti­ful Tereng­ganu 2017 cam­paign.


Kuala Tereng­ganu City Coun­cil Mayor Mohd Zulk­i­fli Abu Bakar ad­vised the pub­lic to alert the coun­cil via the E-Ad­uan sys­tem.

“This sys­tem has been cre­ated for the con­ve­nience of the pub­lic and for the coun­cil to take ac­tion quickly.

“Peo­ple can in­form the coun­cil about is­sues and we can take ac­tion.”

Zulk­i­fli thanked the com­plainant and said he would in­struct his of­fi­cers to check the walk­way and rub­bish site.

He ad­vised the pub­lic to not lit­ter in pub­lic places and in­stead use garbage bins.


The gap­ing hole in a walk­way in Kuala Tereng­ganu should be fixed quickly.
