Overhead foot-bridge needed to connect Asia City to Bandaran Berjaya

Overhead foot-bridge needed to connect Asia City to Bandaran Berjaya

DAP Local Government and Housing Chief Edward Ewol Mujie with the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu and the Sabah DAP Publicity Secretary Teddy Yang inspected the spot where many people had requested a pedestrian overhead foot-bridge to be constructed to link up the two areas from Asia City to Bandaran Berjaya (Shangrila Hotel) across the busy road. There were many accident occurred in the past.

Edward in making the call to the government to construct the foot-bridge said this will not cost a lot but in returns can solve lot of problem including saving lives. The foot-bridge had been under request for a long time and yet no action has been taken. The people crossing the road here, is risking their lives against the fast flowing traffic. It is difficult to cross the road here especially during peak hours.

The construction of this foot-bridge can be of simple steel structure, like the one in Secret Heart Church and at the State Mosque. The time needed to erect and install on site will be short and speedy, may be few days only. The life span can be for as long as thirty years, if properly maintained. Therefore, DBKK and the JKR should immediately expedite to construct.

沙巴民主行动党地方政府和房屋局主任爱德华慕吉,亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士和民行党宣传秘书杨展之接到许多人的要求,希望能够建造一座天桥以衔接亚洲城和成功卫星市(香格里拉酒店旁),由于该处是一个繁忙的公路,在过去造成了许多意外事故发生。 邱博士,爱德华和杨氏前往该处进行巡视。

爱德华呼吁州政府说,建造该天桥不会耗费很大,而且可以解决很多问题,其中包括避免丧失宝贵生命。民众要求建造该天桥已经有很长的一段时间,但当局却没有采取任何行动。 人群是冒着生命危险在该处越过交通忙碌的马路。 尤其是在繁忙时间很难越过马路的。(见图)

建造该天桥可以用简单钢铁结构,列如圣心天主教堂和新布兰回教堂前的天桥。 在该处安装只需要很短的时间,可能只用几天而已。 而且如果适当的维修和保养,其使用期可长达三十年。 因此,为亚庇人民的福利和安全着想,亚庇市政厅和工务局应立即加快建造。
