About 3 weeks ago, the people of Sabah took advantage of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (YDPA) and Raja Permaisuri Agong’s visit to their state to complain to Their Highnesses about their worsening road conditions. Our Raja Permaisuri Agong was even seen taking notes of this, winning the hearts of the people.
Following Their Highnesses’ visit, damaged roads in Sabah were seen to be getting fixed.
Now, merely weeks later, things have appeared to have gone back to normal as the road fixtures that were done were spotted to have become damaged again. The Tentera Troll Sabah Facebook page took to their account to showcase this and condemn the low quality of the fixtures.
They wrote, “This is the results of the work of the GRS government. Less than a month and the roads are badly damaged again. The project was been paid for but the quality of the road is back to being like the surface of the moon. Maybe it is because the commissions were too high.”
The images showcased were taken at Gum-Gum Batu 16, Sandakan.
It is truly saddening to see that road fixtures done by the local authorities are only lasting less than a month, and that these fixtures are only being done when royalty or VVIPs visit.
We genuinely hope that the government looks into making more permanent improvements to our infrastructure, especially in locations that clearly need it.
