City Hall staff have repaired a section of the five-foot way of a shophouse off Jalan Kionsom, in Inanam.

This follows a complaint that the concrete had collapsed at the side of the building and was hazardous to pedestrians. 

A spokesman for the agency said this work was carried out shortly after it became aware that the concrete was damaged.

This damaged five-foot way posed a danger to pedestrians.

“Maintenance work on the pavements is carried out as and when it becomes necessary to do so,” he said.

“Rate-payers should report any irregularities relating to the five-foot way directly to us, so that action can be taken to deal with these problems as soon as possible.”

AUDRA of Manggatal said some of the concrete slabs covering the drain had caved in.

“If you are walking in this part of the town at night and are unaware of this problem, you could easily twist your ankle,” she said.

She said he hated to imagine what would happen if a pregnant woman had fallen into the drain.

“I wonder how often the pavement is maintained.”

Audra said she first noticed the “holes” in the five-foot way some time ago.

“I have reported this matter to local authorities but, so far, no action has been taken to rectify this situation.” 

She provided Hotline with the location of the damaged pavement which was forwarded to the agency. (SS)
