Smelly Problem of Sewerage Pond and Traffic Jam Problem at Kingfisher Park


Sabah DAP received complaints from the public concerning smelly problem of sewerage pond and traffic jam problem at Kingfisher Park. In respect of the sewerage pond next to Taman Kingfisher, we wish to enquire when the construction of a new high tech mechanical sterilized system, second bridge and its budget can be approved to start work.

In the event that the said proposal is not approved by the State Government, is there any alternative way or action to be taken by DBKK to overcome the offensive odours from the sewerage pond next to Taman Kingfisher, whereby it is affecting the health of the residents in the said area. Furthermore, the same problem has caused much stress to the residents of Kingfisher Park for many years now. Despite the many complaints, the answers are always the same, ‘no budget, no budget and no budget!!!

Sabah DAP Legal Advisory Bureaus Chief, Joan Goh Penn Nee wish to know what action has been or will be taken by DBKK to solve this problem of the foul smell. Joan Goh hope DBKK can give a concrete answer instead of the same year in year out that there is NO BUDGET. We believe the residents are fed-up with the ‘no budget’ answer. When the residents purchased the houses there, they were informed that the problem will be solved very soon and nobody mentioned the word “ no budget” to them.
The residents in Kingfisher Park also encountered the problem of traffic jam due to the narrow bridge. All the residents staying at the said area were sharing one single lane bridge to cross the river. There are now a few thousand residential houses there, hundreds of shop lots, schools and hospital in the Kingfisher Park, however there is ONLY ONE road access to the said area whereby a few thousand residents uses the only ONE SINGLE LANE BRIDGE every day and night.

There are now more and more developments in the area and also the land surrounding the area is under heavy development. All the developments are using the SINGLE LANE BRIDGE, whereby the lorries, excavators, heavy machineries sharing the same bridge especially during the peak hours. It takes 30 minutes at least for the residents to get out from the area to the main road for a short distance of 2 KM. We cannot imagine what will be the consequences if in cases of emergency, the result will be disastrous and can cause life lost.

Sabah DAP urges the State Government to fulfil their promise to build the second bridge linking to Kingfisher Park immediately, and not wait for Pakatan Rakyat to build when we take over the Government.

翠鸟园化粪池的臭气处理及大桥的问题

沙巴民主行动党接到公众的投诉有关翠鸟园的化粪池臭气处理及大桥成为瓶颈阻塞交通的问题。该处居民想要知道政府几时才可以兴建新高科技除臭化粪池系统,第二座大桥及其拨款什么时候才将得到政府批准?

尚若该计划的拨款未获批准,亚庇市政厅有没有采取任何替代的方法,以克服翠鸟园目前所面对的恶劣化粪池臭气的问题。 该处的居民投诉说,这已经严重影响了他们的健康。同时该问题已经存在了好几年,尽管有很多投诉,州政府的答案总是说还没有钱进行该计划!

沙巴民主行动党法律顾问局主任,吴佩霓想要知道亚庇市政厅将会采取什么样的行动以解决这个问题,并且如何获得拨款的批准? 吴氏敦促市政厅给人民一个具体的答案,而不是等待一年复一年的一味推堂和“打太极”。 相信该处的居民已经对“没有拨款”的回答感到非常烦厌。 此外,当居民在该处购买房屋时,他们都被告知,该问题将会很快得到解决,同时也没有提到需要等待“拨款”。 此外当地居民还说,因为该区共用着一个单行大桥,因此使到拥有上千户住家的翠鸟园,百多间的商店,学校和医院,面临着严重交通堵塞的问题。

如今在翠鸟园的地区及其周围的土地有越来越多的发展计划得到核准,并且正在进行兴建中,但是,所有的发展也使用该单行大桥,特别是在繁忙的时间许多如货车,挖土机,重型机械都同时使用该座桥梁,造成更加拥挤。 居民说从住处到主要公路的距离只有两公里却必须花半个小时的时间。 我们无法想象如果在紧急情况下,其后果将会是如何?肯定会是不堪设想。

沙巴民主行动党敦促州政府履行其承诺,立即在翠鸟园建立第二座大桥,而不是等到民联接管政府时才兴建。
