Abandoned Pulutan Menggatal flood mitigation project 孟加达布如丹(Pulutan, Menggatal)防洪工程

The recent rain took two lives in Inanam and Kiansom, and the people in Pulutan, near Menggatal town felt their lives are in danger too when the river here swelled to a high flood level. During the big flood some years ago, a man was drowned in Pulutan River. In dry weather, this river looks like a small stream, but when heavy rain hits, the whole area is like a sea with no accessible road to the area.
Sabah DAP Vice chairman cum Local government and Housing Bureau chief Edward Ewol Mujie inspected the area in Pulutan after receiving the calls from concern residents in Pulutan. They told him that the Pulutan round-about is always flooded during heavy rain and the road going into Pulutan is also impassible. The government had made promises to solve the flood problems many times but until now it remains as empty promises.
最近一连几天的下雨导致下南南和建山,及在孟加达布如丹的居民,感到生命处于危险中,尤其是当他们看到该处河流的水位不断的上涨。  在2005年的大水灾,有一名男子曾经淹死在布如丹河。在旱天的季节里,这条河看起来像一条小水沟,但是大雨来袭的时候,整个地区就像大海一样,看不到该 地区的马路。
沙巴民主行动党副主席兼地方政府房屋局主任爱德华慕吉接到许多孟加达布如丹的居民投诉后,就前往该处视察。 他们告诉他说,布如丹路入口处的交通圈每次下大雨的时就会淹水,导致无法前往到布如丹区。政府曾经很多次承诺将会解决该处水淹的问题,但到现在仍然是个空 的承诺。
爱德华看到有许多排水沟建设用的L形混凝土配件摆放在布如丹河旁,该处的居民告诉他说,这项排水沟计划已进行很久,但是一直到今天还是没有正式安 装。 这项防洪设施是很多年前就应该完成的,但却停工至今。问题是没有按计划施工。




Edward saw many big stacks of precast concrete L-shape drain sections for the construction of the storm drain in Pulutan are still sitting by the river sides, and he was told by the people these drain sections were made and stacked there since a long time. These are supposed to be laid to complete the new storm drain many years ago, but the work stopped until now. The question is why the work did not continue as planned.
 Edward wants the JPS to explain on why the construction of the Pulutan Flood Mitigation Project did not carry out according to plan and to completion as schedule. It is believed that there were no money to continue the project, and it is abandoned. Where have the millions of ringgits of allocation for the flood mitigation gone to? The department needs to explain to the people as where the allocation being utilized, and when will the project in Pulutan to restart, and when this can be completed?
We can not afford to have another big flood in Pulutan and even causes live lost. Thus, the BN government is fully responsible to ensure an early completion of the flood mitigation project. The Sabah DAP Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Dr. Hiew King Cheu will also raise this problem in the coming June Parliament sitting on whether any allocation had been made to expedite the completion of this project in Pulutan.
 Edward Ewol Mujie.


孟加达布如丹(Pulutan, Menggatal)防洪工程

最近一连几天的下雨导致下南南和建山,及在孟加达布如丹的居民,感到生命处于危险中,尤其是当他们看到该处河流的水位不断的上涨。  在2005年的大水灾,有一名男子曾经淹死在布如丹河。在旱天的季节里,这条河看起来像一条小水沟,但是大雨来袭的时候,整个地区就像大海一样,看不到该 地区的马路。

沙巴民主行动党副主席兼地方政府房屋局主任爱德华慕吉接到许多孟加达布如丹的居民投诉后,就前往该处视察。 他们告诉他说,布如丹路入口处的交通圈每次下大雨的时就会淹水,导致无法前往到布如丹区。政府曾经很多次承诺将会解决该处水淹的问题,但到现在仍然是个空 的承诺。

爱德华看到有许多排水沟建设用的L形混凝土配件摆放在布如丹河旁,该处的居民告诉他说,这项排水沟计划已进行很久,但是一直到今天还是没有正式安 装。 这项防洪设施是很多年前就应该完成的,但却停工至今。问题是没有按计划施工。

爱德华要水利灌溉局解释,为何布如丹防洪工程的建设没有按计划如期完成呢?  是否因为没有钱来继续该项目,所以就被迫荒置遗弃着。 政府拨出马币数亿令吉用于防洪,这些拨款用去哪里了? 当局必须要向人民解释这些拨款如何被分配使用,以及布如丹防洪计划工程何时再重新施工,并且何时才能完成?

布如丹不能再面对另一个大水灾,因为这会导致人命和财务的损失。国阵政府要负完全的责任,以确保防洪的工程能够早日完成。 沙巴州亚庇国会议员邱庆洲博士也会将在6月的国会中提出这项问题,并且要政府批准该项拨款,以完成在布如丹的防洪输水工程。
