No one likes to drive on a road full of potholes as it is bumpy, uncomfortable, and most of all, it can cause some real damage to their cars. 

A group of villagers were so fed up waiting for the government to repair the potholes on Jalan Off Batu 9, Jalan Labuk Lama, Kg Bariawa, Sandakan, Sabah that they took it upon themselves to fix it.

According to Sin Chew Daily, this stretch of road is always muddy and filled with potholes as heavy-duty vehicles use it all the time.

The ADUN of Sungai Manila, Mokran Ingkat, visited this road in April 2022 and said that the government repaired the street, but within 2 days, it was damaged again as lorries from 3 companies had used the road. 

Mokran added that if the companies do not stop using the road, he would ask JKR to install a height limit pole so that the lorries will not pass through. 

Sabah Potholes

Fast forward to August, nothing was done, and the roads are still filled with potholes. So the villagers took it upon themselves to fill up the potholes with some concrete pieces that an unnamed individual contributed, according to a Facebook page named ISU Sandakan.

The villagers were armed with hoes as they spread the concrete pieces. 

As this is just a temporary solution, ISU Sandakan hopes that the ADUN will take action and install the height limit pole as promised in April 2022.
