Road needs drains in Menggatal // 孟加达镇马路需要水沟



沙巴民主行动党亚庇国会议员邱庆洲带领的走访小组前往孟加达镇进行探访,在与民众会面期间,接到有关马路经常遭受水淹的投诉,即使只是下小雨。

居住在斗亚兰路11里处甘榜根比兰(Kg Kembirian)的黄先生告诉邱国会议员说,他已受够了每逢下雨时就面对马路水淹的问题。 通往他住家的马路经常被水淹没约有一尺深,让走路回家的人深受影响,车辆的刹车系统也因此而出问题。 他说,他已经通知了该区的代议士,但是迄今当局仍然还没有采取行动解决民困。


During a walkabout in Menggatal town, a complaint was received by the Sabah DAP team led by the KK MP Hiew King Cheu concerning a road which is frequently subjected to flood even after a slight rainfall.

The resident living in Kampong Kembirian, at Mile11 Tuaran road told the MP Hiew that he really got fed-up with the flooding situation when ever it rains. The access is usually is flooded over in one foot of water and these affected the people who had to walk home and the cars also has problems on its brake system too. He said he had informed the local YBs and there were no action from the authorities.


The road which leads to many houses here is the only access to the main road and there are no drains by the road side to drain off the water. The water are frequently collected on the road which will last for some hours before it subsides.

When checking on the road, it is found that there are no road side drains along the road. The water is collected in deep puddles. Hiew said this situation can be rectified by digging the road side drains along the road and there should be no flooding any more. The provision of drainage must be provided to avoid flood occurring. The authorities must come to check on the situation and should not ignore the complaints from the resident here. Furthermore, the digging of earth drains is easy, and the cost is very low. The people should not be left with this kind of hardship and get socked every time they want to go home. There was a woman carrying her bags and vegetables trying to walk carefully during the visit of the DAPs and she made the complaint to them too.

Hiew urges the authorities to come to see to the matter quickly.

马路需要水沟

沙巴民主行动党亚庇国会议员邱庆洲带领的走访小组前往孟加达镇进行探访,在与民众会面期间,接到有关马路经常遭受水淹的投诉,即使只是下小雨。

居住在斗亚兰路11里处甘榜根比兰(Kg Kembirian)的黄先生告诉邱国会议员说,他已受够了每逢下雨时就面对马路水淹的问题。 通往他住家的马路经常被水淹没约有一尺深,让走路回家的人深受影响,车辆的刹车系统也因此而出问题。 他说,他已经通知了该区的代议士,但是迄今当局仍然还没有采取行动解决民困。

该段经常淹水的马路,是通往该处住宅区的唯一道路,而该段马路的两旁因没有排水沟,因此无法把水排走,而淹没该段马路,通常会持续几个小时后才消退。

该走访团队前往视察该段马路,发现正如民众所讲的一样,当局并没有沿着马路的两侧兴建排水沟,此外由于地形稍低陷,因此更容易淹水。 邱氏说,这情况是可以纠正的,当局只需要沿着马路的两侧挖掘排水沟,以便让雨水顺畅排走,就能解除淹水的问题。 当局必须派人前来进行视察该处,和立即安排挖掘土沟或兴建水沟,他们不应该忽视该处居民的投诉。此外,挖水渠是很容易的工作,而其成本也很低。 政府不应该任凭该处的居民每次回家时面对困难时而不理会。 邱氏和党员在视察期间,有位妇女拿着她的包包和蔬菜涉水走过,她也向他们作出同样的投诉。 该处的居民说,他们对国阵政府是非常的不满和失望。

邱氏敦促有关当局立即前往视察,并尽快把问题处理好。
