Taman Kolombong residents closed access road to new condo // 哥隆邦花园的居民阻拦马路




哥隆邦花园的57户居民怒气冲天,以今日用汽车阻拦通往该处新建公寓地盘的通道,这是发生在Lorong PIC 45处,他们非常不满该发展商使用其住宅区的马路,运送沉重的建材到他们所建设的16层高公寓工地。 许多重型罗里进出而造成干扰。 房屋面临许多结构上的问题,道路及沟渠也受到影响,尤其是该处居民的安全。

虽然之前居民和发展商有所协议,但是他们很不满意,因此将会继续封锁道路,直到发展商建好自身的另一道马路。 该处的居民的发言人,亚历士朱说, 这里的人都担心,将会有更多的重型车辆运载建筑材料通过住宅区路到该工地,情况将会更严重。发展商是否会守其诺言,在房屋后面的空地建立一道通路。 亚庇市政厅已同意发展商使用。



The 57 angry house owners in Taman Kolombong at Lorong PIC 4 and 5 were forced to close the access road following their dissatisfaction over the developer using their housing estate road to transport heavy loads of building materials into a 16 storey Service Apartment construction site. The heavy trucks have caused disturbances to the quiet housing estate. The housing is facing problems not only to their buildings structures, roads and drains but also to the safety and well being of the people.

The residents are not happy at all even thought there were previous arrangement with the developer, and they will continue to block the roads until the developer construct their own access road someway else. According to Alex Chu, the spokesman of the residents committee here, the people here are worry that more loads of construction materials will get transported into the site via their housing road, and the burden on them will get more serious day by day. There is no guarantee that the developer will keep their promise to build an alternative access road at the back of the housing using the open space belonging to the housing estate. This was agreed and also acknowledged by DBKK.


Chu further mentioned that the said land is zoned as commercial use, and why the authorities had approved a residential development of a 128 unit high-rise apartment building. There is no access to it and why they can approve the development plan. The authorities cannot force their way through and hoping that they can use the housing road as the access to this condo. There will be many more cars getting in and out once the condo is completed, and now the construction traffic is bad enough.

The residents filed a complaint with the KK MP Office and they brought the MP Hiew King Cheu on to site to understand further about the situation. There were some 35 residents turned up to meet MP Hiew, and they all wished that he can give them a helping hand to resolve the matter. The ladies are not happy with the heavy trucks carrying heavy loads passing their home and created a lot of dust that got into the houses. They are also worried when the kids are playing on the road. The peaceful environment of the housing had been destroyed completely.

Hiew said he wishes the authorities like DBKK should immediately advice the developer to construct the alternative access road. The new access road would not take a long time to construct, but they must get on to it. Meanwhile the residents in Taman Kolombong said they will continue to block the road until the alternative road is completed, and they said it is within their rights to do so. They are just protecting their rights and interests the natural way. No one would like their quiet and peace be infringed and turn up side down.

哥隆邦花园的居民阻拦马路

哥隆邦花园的57户居民怒气冲天,以今日用汽车阻拦通往该处新建公寓地盘的通道,这是发生在Lorong PIC 45处,他们非常不满该发展商使用其住宅区的马路,运送沉重的建材到他们所建设的16层高公寓工地。 许多重型罗里进出而造成干扰。 房屋面临许多结构上的问题,道路及沟渠也受到影响,尤其是该处居民的安全。

虽然之前居民和发展商有所协议,但是他们很不满意,因此将会继续封锁道路,直到发展商建好自身的另一道马路。 该处的居民的发言人,亚历士朱说, 这里的人都担心,将会有更多的重型车辆运载建筑材料通过住宅区路到该工地,情况将会更严重。发展商是否会守其诺言,在房屋后面的空地建立一道通路。 亚庇市政厅已同意发展商使用。

朱氏还提到,上述土地是以商业用途,为何当局却已批准128个单位的高层公寓住宅发展项目。为什么他们可以批准该项发展计划? 当局不能强行批准发展商使用住宅区的道路。 一旦该公寓竣工入伙,将会有更多的车辆进出,何况目前该处的交通已经够糟糕了。

该些居民前往亚庇国会议员办事处提出有关申诉,他们也邀请邱庆洲国会议员到现场进一步了解其情况。 有大约35为居民会见邱氏,他们都希望他可以给他们伸出援助之手,以解决这个问题。 其中有两位女士说,她们很讨厌重型罗里搬运重物经过她们的家,并制造了大量的灰尘飘入屋里。 她们也担心孩子们在马路上玩耍的安全。 该住宅区宁静的环境已完全被摧毁。

邱氏说,他希望亚庇市政厅应立即要发展商建造自身的通路。 新的通路不会花费很长的时间来建设,但他们必须要立即开工。 同时居民们表示,他们将会继续挡路,直到发展商完成另一道路。 他们说这样做完全是在保障自己的权益,也是保护自己利益的自然方式。没有人会喜欢他人侵犯自己的安静与和平。
