Solve Putatan traffic jam problem // 必打丹交通拥堵




由于车辆每年逐渐的增加,每天从甘拜园前往洛交宜的交通堵车问题是越来越糟糕。 交通部也没有快速提升和扩大在沿着该段马路的路口和支路以应付增加的车辆流量。 此外该地区的快速发展已促使该处的汽车的数量上升了4倍。 在京那律,必打丹和洛交宜等地方也兴建起许多新住宅区,工厂和商店等。

因此每逢高峰时段,从亚庇国际机场的联邦马路通往必打卡士,沙宾都,洛交宜,金拿律的道路面对着严重的交通堵车。 一天内至少會有25,500l以上的车辆在该段马路上行驶, 这是因為每年所登记的车辆有大量的增加而造成的。



The traffic jam from Kepayan to Lok Kawi is getting worst day by day due to the increased traffic flow. The section of the road and its junctions were not upgraded and widen up to cater for the swift traffic flow. The number of cars had increased up to four times due to the rapid development in the area. New housings, industrial factories and shops are mushrooming in Kinarut, Putatan, and in Lok Kawi.

This Federal road from the KKIA – Petagas – Sabindo – Lok Kawi – Kinarut faced heavy jam especially during peak hours and in rush hours. This road has to handle at least 25,500 vehicles in a day, and this is partly due to the increased vehicles registered on the road nowadays.


The Federal Ministry of Work will ensure that the upgrading work from Kepayan Road until KKIA along the Petagas River on to the Lok Kawi road junction is carried out. This will be done with the JKR standard R5, with 3 lanes both ways along the 9.2 kilometer of road. The estimated cost will be 90 million.

At the moment, the Ministry of Works is undertaking to evaluate the possibility on building a coastal road connecting to KKIA terminal and the Cargo terminal. The two projects shall be carried out under the 10th Malaysia Plan.

KK MP viewed the reply to a question raised in Parliament as just merely a reply without action, and today what we can see in the Putatan and Lok Kawi Road is more severe traffic jam which can be as long as half an hour to pass through a 6 kilometer road. The jam is not doing any good for the people who frequently used this road. Some people even choose to stay in the office late to avoid the jam. Many precious hours had been lost because of the jam, and many had missed their flights in KKIA. The worst case is that the ambulances find it difficult to ferry the patients who needed immediate hospital care.

The road system upgrading must be done without further delay, and it is not understandable why the JKR proposed to build the coastal road instead of constructing a road through the back of Putatan and Petagas connecting up to Lok Kawi. This is a faster route and easier place to build a new road. It will be cheaper and faster to complete. The land in this backyard area will have access and development can be enhanced. The vast area of land here will see some light in rapid development. With the new road connected here, the drainage can also be built to improve the flooding situation here. The JKR should study this without further delay because this is a shorter route and cheaper to construct.

必打丹交通拥堵

由于车辆每年逐渐的增加,每天从甘拜园前往洛交宜的交通堵车问题是越来越糟糕。 交通部也没有快速提升和扩大在沿着该段马路的路口和支路以应付增加的车辆流量。 此外该地区的快速发展已促使该处的汽车的数量上升了4倍。 在京那律,必打丹和洛交宜等地方也兴建起许多新住宅区,工厂和商店等。

因此每逢高峰时段,从亚庇国际机场的联邦马路通往必打卡士,沙宾都,洛交宜,金拿律的道路面对着严重的交通堵车。 一天内至少會有25,500l以上的车辆在该段马路上行驶, 这是因為每年所登记的车辆有大量的增加而造成的。

联邦工程部說要认真考量该问题,并立即提升甘拜园路直到亚庇国际机场,以及沿着必打卡士的洛交宜路以及其交界处。 这项提升须符合工务局的R5标准,把该9.2公里长的马路提升成为三行道。 他們估计该项工程将需要马币九千万。

目前联邦工程部正在进行评估研究要建设一道海邊路连接到亚庇国际机场和空运貨物站。该两项工程应会在第十大马计划下进行。

亚庇国会议员邱庆洲对于部长在国会的回应有关该项问题,好似只是说说而已,并没有采取实际行动去解决。 迄今人民在必打丹和洛交宜的路上面還是对着严重的交通堵塞,一段只有6公里长的路经常要花上半個小时才能通過。 经常使用该段马路的市民对于该处的交通问题感到很懊恼,有些人甚至选择留在办公室延迟回家,以避開堵车。 由于堵车的问题往往导致司机浪费时间和金钱,有的甚至错过机场的航班。 最糟糕的情况是救护车面對困难运送急病患者前往医院就医。

该段马路的系统必须要立即提升,不可再拖延。 让人感到费解的是为何工务局提议兴建沿著海邊的马路,而不是在必打丹和必打卡士市郊后面兴建多一条道路,以连接到洛交宜呢? 这是一道更快的路线,不单不需要花费很高,而且也可以很快兴建好。好處是该地区后方的​​土地可以进行发展,随着新路的连接,也可以兴建新的排水沟,以改善该处水浸的问题。 工务局应该加以研究和考量,因为这是一道较短的路和以更便宜的價錢建好。
