Kota Belud: Residents of Kg. Taginambur in Kota Belud are frustrated over the promise of having better road facilities, which until today remains unfulfilled.

Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) Sabah Wanita Chief, Lukia Indan, highlighted their plight during a media conference at the PKR headquarters here.

"I was informed that a Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate in 2008 had promised to repair the road along the town's shoplots with asphalt, however, nothing has been done until today.

"In fact, the area has worsened over the years, making it difficult for road users as well as pedestrians and children plying the road, especially during rainy days, when the large potholes are filled with water and mud.

"Business proprietors also find it inconvenient for their business, especially those operating coffee shops," she said.

Lukia said the small pebbles on the road poses danger to pedestrians, which would scatter especially when cars pass through.

"We hope the authorities would look into this matter instead of making empty promises," she said.
