SPNB housing long overdue completion // 国家房屋局(SPNB)廉价房屋工程逾期未完成




国家房屋局(Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad)所兴建的威士达米尼度(Vista Minitod)廉价公寓工程已经逾期完工,引起买屋者极大的不满。 让他们很不满的是该工程不知还要等上多少年才能够完成。

这批不幸的买者通过电子邮件和电话联络上亚庇国会议员办事处投诉有关事项,并且促请邱庆洲国会议员协助他们向当局反映有关问题,以及调查为何该项工程无法按时完成。 目前该工程已经延迟了一年,如今可能还需要多一年以上才能竣工。


The long overdue completion of the Vista Minitod” housing project by the SPNB (Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad) housing had caused much anger and frustration among the buyers who had waited for many years and could be some more years to wait on before the housing project is finally to be completed.

The purchasers of this ill-fated housing project complained to the KK MP Hiew King Cheu through e-mails and phone calls urging him to highlight the issue and to check on why the housing project is unable to be completed as per schedule. The delay is already one year now and it would take at least one more year to complete.


The Sabah DAP visited the site and found that there are many items of work uncompleted and left idle. The outstanding work includes the construction of the assess roads, building work, water supply and power supply system, sewerage system, completion of the 10 units shops, surau, kindergarten, playground and other associated facilities. There is much work to be carried out in this SPNB housing, while the purchasers continue to wait on and paying the banks on their loans.

MP Hiew later learnt that the delay in the completion is mainly due to some financial constrains of the SPNB which is directly under the Federal Ministry of Housing and Local Government. The other problems is due to the main assess road which is coming in from the Bundusan Beverly Hill side. The difficulty of constructing the assess road is due to the excavation of rock which needed blasting. The water supply to the housing also faced problems and cannot be connected from the Beverly Hill, and now JAS (Jabatan Air) had allowed the connection be made along the Minitod / Kasigui road where there is a bigger water main. This also faced other problem like gaining right of way through private land.

MP Hiew said all the problems on the delay had turned the original concept of the “Affordable Home” into some heavy burden to many house purchasers to pay extra rental for a dwelling else way. Many had said they have been spending extra money which including transportation cost and additional expenses daily. These purchasers actually are low income group who can only afford to buy low cost apartment unit. Very sadly now the ‘Affordable home’ has become ‘unaffordable home’.

The SPNB had many housing projects spread out in Sabah and surprising enough there are many housing project under them had either stop work and abandoned completely. There two big projects in Sandakan faced the same faith. This is something not acceptable and we must do something about it. There are too many people who had stuck in these projects and their money stuck too. Why is this happening and why the Ministry did not do anything the speed up the progress and get the houses completed immediately. What happened to the promises of the BN to provide a roof for Malaysian?


We want to see some immediate action to complete the VISTA MINITOD housing project and cannot let these poor house buyers to suffer further.


Hiew King Cheu, KK MP

国家房屋局(SPNB)廉价房屋工程逾期未完成

国家房屋局(Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad)所兴建的威士达米尼度(Vista Minitod)廉价公寓工程已经逾期完工,引起买屋者极大的不满。 让他们很不满的是该工程不知还要等上多少年才能够完成。

这批不幸的买者通过电子邮件和电话联络上亚庇国会议员办事处投诉有关事项,并且促请邱庆洲国会议员协助他们向当局反映有关问题,以及调查为何该项工程无法按时完成。 目前该工程已经延迟了一年,如今可能还需要多一年以上才能竣工。

沙巴民主行动党领袖前往该处进行视察和了解实况,他们发现该处有很多项工作还未完成,甚至荒置着。 这些项目包括马路的建设,公寓的建造,水电供应及污水处理系统,10个单位的商店,回教祈祷室,幼稚园,游乐场及其他的设施。 实际上该处公寓还有许多工作需要做,因此该公寓的买者被迫继续地等待,以及继续支付他们的银行贷款。

邱国会议员后来被告知,国家房屋局所进行的工程项目是直属联邦房屋及地方政府部门,其延迟完工的主要原因是由于缺乏基金及财务短缺所造成的。  另一问题是有关通往公寓的马路,该段马路是由本都山碧华利山庄(Bundusan Beverly Hill)后面的山边进入。 由于需要进行爆石开挖,导致该段马路的建设面对了困难。 另外则是水供的问题,因为不能从碧华利山庄衔接水管经过高山至该处。 水务局(Jabatan Air)已经批准从密尼度/加西贵(Minitod/Kasigui Road)路的大水管以提供水源,然而问题是,他们必须获得批准在私人土地安装水管。

邱国会议员说,这工程延迟的问题,对原本是负担得起的房屋概念,却造成了‘沉重的负担’,许多买者必须支付额外的房屋租金以等待他们所买的房屋竣工。 许多人说,他们被迫必须花费额外的钱,其中包括交通费和其他费用。  其实这些买者都是低收入的人,只能买得起廉价公寓单位。 最可悲的是,国阵政府所推出负担得起的房屋计划,如今已成为沉重的负担

国家房屋局在沙巴州多处有许多类似的房屋工程项目,但是令人感到惊讶的是,该公司所负责的房屋工程项目,有些已经停工,甚至有的已经废置着。 在山打根就有两项大型的房屋计划迄今面对着同样的命运。 这是不能被接受,我们必须要政府向人民清楚交待。 已经有太多的人士因这些工程拖延而陷入财务困境。 为何会出现这种情况? 该部门为何没有积极的去敦促工程的进展,让房屋工程尽早完成。国阵政府所承诺的 居者有其屋根本是睁着眼睛说瞎话!

我们要政府立即采取行动,尽早完成威士达米尼度(Vista Minitod)廉价公寓的工程,不能让这些可怜的买者继续承受痛苦
