Where is the Promised Sg. Damit Bridge?承诺的达密河(Sg. Damit)大桥在哪里?


The people living in the vicinity of the Sg. Damit, had voiced out their grievances to the Sabah DAP Tuaran Division. They are very disappointed on the empty promises made by the Barisan National (BN) since year 2000 until now for a bridge to be built across the Sg. Damit. They said they had totally given up hope on the BN, and will turn to support Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in the coming 13th General Election, even though BN comes now to announce the bridge to be constructed soon.

According to them, they have suffered long enough to making the long detour around to use the Tamparuli Bridge in order to get to the other side of the Sg. Damit. This detour will take one hour drive to reach. There were announcement made on the bridge to be built, especially during the 2004 and 2008 general election. Each time the kampong folks are disappointed.

Sabah DAP Vice chairman Edward Ewol Mujie and the DAP Tuaran chief were on site to inspect the situation faced by the people there. It is noticed that there is a narrow suspension bridge there for pedestrian only. Some motorcyclists are taking the risk to speed across using the suspension bridge, which is highly dangerous for the motorcycle and the foot traffic.

Edward and Peter both said why the BN government can not build the promised bridge, and continue to let the Kampongs suffer the long detour round Tamparuli. It will not be fair after making public announcement and yet nothing had been done. This exposed the incapability and weakness of the BN government. No wonder the people said they will ditch the BN.

Sabah DAP urges the people in Tuaran to support the Pakatan Rakyat in the 13th General election to form the new Sabah Government, so that there will be a bridge over the Damit River.

承诺的达密河(Sg. Damit)桥在哪里?

住在达密河(Sg. Damit)附近的居民,向沙巴民主行动党斗亚兰区部投诉他们对政府没有兴建达密大桥的极度不满。国阵政府在二零零零年承诺将会兴建一座横跨达密河(Sg. Damit)的大桥,但是迄今该承诺都没有实现,国阵不断向人民开出空头支票,这使到该处的村民非常的失望。 他们说,他们已经完全放弃对国阵的希望,并且会在第13届大选中支持民联,成立新州政府。  就算国阵现在公布在短期内将会兴建该座大桥,也将于事无补。

据村民说,他们已经受够了长期绕过担坡罗里桥,前往河的另一边。  如此的绕道需要浪费一小时车程才能到达。 2004年和2008年大选时国阵曾经公布说,将会兴建该座大桥,但是到头来还是一场空,大失所望,村民说他们已经受够及不再受骗了

沙巴民主行动党州副主席爱德华慕吉和斗亚兰区部负责人刘辉坚前往该河边处视察,以了解该处村民所面对的问题。 发现该处只有一条简陋又狭窄的行人吊桥。 摩托车冒风险快速跨越该座吊桥,这对摩托车或步行者是非常危险的事。

他们说,国阵政府为什么不能遵守其诺言立即兴建该座大桥,反而继续让该处的居民面对绕远道的困难。尤其是已公开宣布兴建,但却没有任何行动,这是极不公平的。 这已充分暴露了国阵政府的无能和不守信用。 很多人都说,他们不要国阵了

沙巴民主行动党敦促斗亚兰的民众在第13届大选全力支持民联,撤换沙巴州政府,好让达密河大桥真正能够建起来
