Purposeless hand rail fixed along Kapayan Dual Carriageway // 甘拜园车道兩旁不適用的栏杆





民众对于有关当局沿着甘拜园路前往亚庇国际机场的马路两旁安置的栏杆感到疑惑,并且质疑其安装的目的,而且该些栏杆看來也不適用。 该管状的脆弱栅栏似乎毫无作用,当局只是把它按设在该处而已。 民众说该矮围栏并不能阻止人们跨越,也无法阻止动物進出或阻挡汽车辆的撞击,糟糕的是有些行人道已被围栏擋着而无法通过和有许多地方已被撞击而损坏。 此外由于该些围栏是安置在行人道的内则,这对行人而言是极危险的事。



The general publics have doubts and queries concerning the purpose of installing something that doesn’t look like handrails, barricades, fence or even crash barriers along both sides of the Kapayan Road towards the Kota Kinabalu International Airport. The long line of tubular flimsy fence served no purpose and it seem like it is only for the purpose of putting it there. The people said that this cannot stop the people from crossing over, cannot stop animals and cars and worse still it is an obstruction in some places where the walk way is blocked. In many places this had been knocked and fallen off.


Edward Ewol Mujie, the Sabah DAP Vice Chairman cum Local Government and Housing Bureau Chief said if the people who think these are impractical and funny, then there must be something serious wrong. The fence definitely is also seen to be an installation that served no purpose and it is a waste of public fund. It is believed that these fences cost quite a large sum of money. It is also noticed that the fences was installed without any real function and purpose, and it the middle of no way too.

Edward urges the JKR to review this and may be a redesign exercise is more applicable for the actual purpose. It will be not long that the fence will fall off or disappear totally, or may be the metal theft will get their hands on it soon. Edward reminds the authorities that what ever the facilities they installed there must be a specific function and purpose. This is especially so for the safety measure to ensure public safety as its priority and primary function. Edward also pointed out that in Kota Kinabalu there are many danger spots on the road which needed attention, but these are not attended to, why spend so much money to do something that served no specific purpose. We want our road to be safe and it is the duty of the government and the authorities to provide that, otherwise it will be negligence on their part.

甘拜园车道兩旁不適用的栏杆

民众对于有关当局沿着甘拜园路前往亚庇国际机场的马路两旁安置的栏杆感到疑惑,并且质疑其安装的目的,而且该些栏杆看來也不適用。 该管状的脆弱栅栏似乎毫无作用,当局只是把它按设在该处而已。 民众说该矮围栏并不能阻止人们跨越,也无法阻止动物進出或阻挡汽车辆的撞击,糟糕的是有些行人道已被围栏擋着而无法通过和有许多地方已被撞击而损坏。 此外由于该些围栏是安置在行人道的内则,这对行人而言是极危险的事。

沙巴民主行动党州副主席兼地方政府及房屋局主任爱德华慕吉说,如果民众都认为该些栏杆是不切实际和毫无用途,那么该裝设一定是項严重的错失。 该些围栏很肯定的只是装设品而已,并没有任何用途和目的,这无疑是浪费公帑。 据了解安置该围栏的费用已耗费了相当大的一笔钱。

爱德华敦促工务局要前往视察,并且需要重新设计,以更能够适用于实际的用途。 相信该些围栏将会脱落或完全消失,也可能会被盗贼窃走。爱德华提醒当局,他们在进行任何设施安装时,必须要有特定的功能和用途。特别是安全措施,要以公众的安全作为优先,并确保主要的功能。爱德华还指出,亚庇市的马路有许多危险点需要注意,但是当局却没有去处理。現在为何花这么多钱去安装没有任何具体作用的东西呢。我们希望亚庇的马路是安全的,这是政府和交通部的职责,他们没有照顾到就是他们的疏忽。
