Road Within Residential Area Is In Disrepair For 30 Years, Residents Complain About Inefficient Elected Representative

05.09.2015--Residents complained about inefficient elected representative because the road within their residential area has been in disrepair for 30 years.

Resident Ting Poh Kiew, who has lived at Jalan Periwinkle 1, Pin Fook Garden for 30 years today came forward to make the complaint while United People’s Party (UPP) Piasau chairman and Majulah Miri founder Dato Hii King Chiong was making inspection on road problems in the area together with councillors and others.

She said that since moving to the area, she has never seen the relevant authority doing any road maintenance. The road was in disrepair and its surface was critically uneven.

She disclosed that she had to repair the badly damaged road outside her house at her own expense as complaints made to the authority were to no avail.

She pointed out that she had made numerous complaints to the elected representative during inspection visits before elections, but to no avail.

Hii, concerned with the problem, without delay requested councillors James Hii, Siew Tick Chai and Kok Yung Kai to take note and refer the problem to Miri City Council so as to initiate maintenance work as soon as possible.
