Potholes cause more trouble than we think. It’s not just about the risk of getting into an accident and if you “make it out” alive, your car has probably sustained hidden damages due to the impact, depending on the depth of the holes.

Just today (March 20), the Deputy Minister of Works, Ahmad Maslan highlighted the potholes situation in Rompin, Pahang. Ahmad assured the public that the Ministry of Works (KKR) is committed to providing quality and professional service, and they will do so by fixing the potholes in Malaysia in 24 hours.

Ahmad was answering a question from another politician who wanted to know how KKR would solve potholes issues, particularly in Rompin.

“Road accidents are mostly caused by the driver’s recklessness (80%), the road condition (13%), and the technical aspects of the vehicles (7%),” Ahmad explained on the causes of accidents.

He also added,

“In January and February 2024, a total of 774 potholes on the federal roads were reported. All of them were fixed in 24 hours.”

Ahmad said that back in 2023, nearly 6,000 reports regarding potholes in Malaysia were received by the Ministry, and all were also fixed in 24 hours.

“KKR has allocated RM3.3 billion from 2018 to 2023 to fix potholes issue on Malaysian roads.”

In the meantime, Ahmad highlighted that RM690 million was spent in 2023 to fix the roads in Malaysia. As for this year, the Ministry has allocated about RM700 million for the same purpose, which will include the road from KL to Bentong, Pahang.

Ahmad also told the public to always contact KKR through the MyJalan application or the direct number to their office to report pothole issues. To those who are staying in potholes-filled areas, this is the best time to lodge a report to the Ministry.
