PKR Sabah has received a lot of complains lately with regards to the traffic congestion and poor road traffic planning along Jalan Duta (Bundusan) Penampang. PKR Sabah Secretary - Dr Roland Chia revealed today.
Residents and Business operators have complained on the traffic congestion at the roundabout of the inter link between Jalan Duta (Bundusan Road) and Jalan Penampang Lama.
This congestion is worst especially during the rush hours when parents send their children to schools. The schools are SK Bahang, SMK Bahang 1, SRJK Yue Min, SK St Anthony and SMK Taman Tun Fuad and also surrounded by a dense population of residential and industrial areas.
The local authorities must quickly look into alternatives to alleviate the problems with the possibility of installing traffic lights instead of roundabouts if the latter does not seemed to solve the traffic congestion.
One of the complainants who is a young mother – a resident of Taman Penampang has difficulty using the round about in view of the heavy traffic and also frustrating drivers who drives furiously and in high speed around the roundabout.
On many occasions, road traffic accidents occurred and resulted in her unable to send her children to school on time. Such high occurrence of road traffic accidents does not also augur well with the residents living there as it will pose a hazard to the surrounding areas.
