Lighting needed at traffic junctions // 交通路口损毁的路灯




亚庇市的许多处路口的路灯已被车辆撞毁,为何当局迄今没有更换该些损坏的路灯? 这造成了马路使用者的不便和危险。

亚庇市的许多处路口没有路灯照明,这是因为该些灯柱在被车辆撞倒后没有获得立即更换。有些路口的灯柱已被撞毁多年,迄今还没有更换。


Why no replacement to road lights when being knocked off by cars at the road junctions in many parts of Kota Kinabalu City? This is causing inconvenience and danger to the road users.

There are many road junctions in KK City where there are no road lights to lit up the place. This is because when the lights were knocked down by cars during accident, these were not immediately replaced. In some areas, this was left without lights for years.


The KK MP Hiew King Cheu received many public complaints requesting him to inform the authorities and DBKK to replace the lights. These lights are important in the traffic junctions to reduce the risk of road accidents. This is especially so during rainy nights and on the highway like Jalan Lintas and Tuaran By-pass.

Hiew said the road junction in Tuaran Road entering the North Bus terminal in Inanam has a broken road light pole with the light bulk-heads for years. There was no action to get it repaired. The U-turn junctions on the Jalan Lintas near Iramanis also were without lights for a long period after the light pole was knocked off by cars. The need to have the lights back on is compulsory and it can save life too.

MP Hiew urges the authorities and DBKK to come immediately to reinstate the road light that failed or totally disappeared. It wouldn’t cost a lot but it can save life. The DBKK lighting team should go round to check on these lights more often to ensure they are functional at night.

交通路口损毁的路灯

亚庇市的许多处路口的路灯已被车辆撞毁,为何当局迄今没有更换该些损坏的路灯? 这造成了马路使用者的不便和危险。

亚庇市的许多处路口没有路灯照明,这是因为该些灯柱在被车辆撞倒后没有获得立即更换。有些路口的灯柱已被撞毁多年,迄今还没有更换。

亚庇国会议员邱庆洲接到很多市民投诉有关该事项,并要求他向相关部门和亚庇市政厅反映该些问题。  他说交通路口处必须要有足够的路灯照明,以减少道路交通事故的风险。 这尤其是在雨夜中,高速公路上,例如亿达路和斗亚兰绕道,尤其更重要

邱氏说,从斗亚兰路前往下南南北巴士总站的路口处的路灯杆和其灯泡​​,已经损坏多年还没有更换。 看起来当局是没有要派人前往修理。 沿着亿达路在Iramanis U-转路口处的路灯,自从被车辆撞倒后,一直都没有重新安装。 在该路口处安装路灯是有必要的,这可以减低交通意外和伤亡。

邱国会议员敦促政府当局和亚庇市政厅立即重新安装所有故障,损毁或被撞倒的路灯。 这不会花费很多,最主要的是要确保马路使用者的安全。 亚庇市政厅负责路灯或街灯的工作人员应该经常进行检查的工作,以确保街灯或路灯在夜间都能操作,还有需要安装更多的照明灯
