Jalan Bukit Padang should be a 2-way street 武吉巴当路(Jln Bukit Padang)应该是双程马路

Sabah DAP State Assemblyman YB Jimmy Wong has received numerous complaints from the public concerning the Jalan Bukit Padang, a by-pass road from Jalan Bersatu (SMC Damai) to Jalan Lintas. Along Jalan Bukit Padang which is about 500 meters there is only one house on the right. In front of this house is the residence of Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Joseph Pairin Kitingan whose entrance is from Jalan Bersatu.  The public is asking why the authority is making this road a one-way street. According to them there is enough room to make it a double-lane street. According to Sabah DAP Vice Chairman Edward Ewol Mujie, Jalan Bukit Padang was a 2-way street. What happen now is that the authority has placed barriers and a narrow entrance from Jalan Lintas to prevent people from making an illegal entry.
 


沙巴民主行动党州议员黄仕平说该党已收到许多投诉有关武吉巴当路(Jln Bukit Padang),从Jalan Bersatu(达迈第二女皇医院)到林达士路的绕道马路。 该段大约有半公里长的马路右边却只有一间大洋房。该大洋房是副首席部长拿督百林的居所,他家的入口处是从Jalan Bersatu而入。 市民询问当局为什么把这条马路的入口兴建成单程路口。 他们都指出该处是有足够的空间使其成为双程马路。 根据沙巴民主行动党副主席爱德华慕吉说,该段马路应该是一到双程马路。 现在的情况是当局在从林达士路的入口处加了路栏,导致该入口变成狭窄,据说这是为了防止非法进入该段路所设的。


 What is amusing is that there is a small side lane leading to the City Mall. Based on the signage this “path” is meant for pedestrian and bicycle.  A pedestrian and bicycle path is not only short but how many people and bicycle will be using it? As it leads to the shopping mall, this path can be misconstrued as a trolley lane and would only be benefiting one family.

Logically this road should be a 2-way street. There is ample space to accommodate two lanes. By allowing access to Sabah Medical Center (SMC) from Lintas highway will save many life during an emergency. It is also good for the Fire & Rescue Department and the Police. It will no doubt cut down travelling time from Dah Yeh Villa to Lintas and vice versa. Hopefully it will also help to alleviate the serious jam in Dah Yeh Villa.

有趣的是有却有一条小通道通往城市广场(City Mall)。 根据路上的标志,这段‘狭小路径’是设计成为行人道和脚踏车道。 该行人道和脚踏车的路段不仅是狭窄,而且试问有多少人使用脚踏车这在该段小径? 到底该小径的正式用途在何处,或者只是用于购物商场的手推车使用而已。

逻辑上这段道路应该是一道双程马路。因为该处是有足够的空间容纳双程车道。 如果该段马路能够让车辆进出前往到第二女皇医院(QE2),那么紧急状况之下的救护车可以节省许多时间绕道路阳和生园,而挽救许多宝贵生命。 此外对消防救援局及警方利用该段路都无疑是好处多多,因为这将减少行车的时间。 同时这也将有助于缓和大业新村严重交通堵塞的问题。 绝对不应该为了某家的反对而硬硬把该段路封了,可能是因为他们不喜欢救护车的鸣叫声。
