Action soon on solving PPR Jalan Lintas Sibuga issues

12th August, 2020

SANDAKAN: Action will be taken to solve several issues at PPR Lintas Sibuga Sandakan as soon as possible.

“We have identified quite a number of problems at this housing area that need attention,” said Taren Sunil Manoharan, Head of the Highway and Public Utilities Committee (HPUC) who made an inspection of the area.

The duo met with representatives from Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) PPR Lintas Sibuga to listen to the numerous problems faced by those staying there.

“It is very important to let them air their grouses so that we can understand their situation better and help them more effectively,” said Taren Sunil.

They jointly visited the surau and found the ceiling to be leaking while the walls were cracked.

“We will have to solve this problem as soon as possible. I have already informed those at MPS who are in charge of handling such matters and asked for their immediate action,” assured Taren Sunil.

Taren, Bryan and members of MPKK Lintas Sibuga then went around to carefully inspect the buildings and surrounding compound. They found that many pipes in the buildings were leaking and causing several areas to be constantly damp and dangerously slippery. Quite a number of lights along the buildings’ corridors were not functional and needed to be replaced. In the compound there were overgrown trees that needed to be trimmed.

However, Taren Sunil expressed his dismay when he saw the compound littered with rubbish and the drains clogged up with trash, especially plastic water bottles.

“We can understand that wear and tear do occur but these are man-made problems due to the bad habits of some uncaring people. Time and again we have pleaded for public cooperation to help keep Sandakan clean but, sadly, there are still those who just don’t care,” he remarked.

HPUC will take up all these matters to the relevant departments at MPS and try to get the problems sorted out promptly. We will get help from other local authorities where necessary, promised Taren Sunil.
