RM2 billion for Sandakan but nothing for Skybridge

THERE are all sorts of bridges in this world. You have that amazing bridge that links Hong Kong’s Lantau island to Zhuhai and onwards to Macau.

Then you have the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Franscio.

Now you have the wonderful Sky Bridge in KK that leads to nowhere. 

Some people who were so Gung-ho before GE 14 about the unfinished bridge have gone completely silent about it after winning their respective State and Parliamentary seats. 

The issue of the unfinished Sky Bridge had served their purpose. If it unfinished 4 years from now and just before GE 15, we will see the same people demanding that the needs of the people be met and their safety of pedestrians be taken into consideration. 

And then again nothing happens. And just like a rusty old grammar phone we hear the same thing over and over again.

Come to think of it, this Sky Bridge can become a tourist attraction. Tour guides can be tutored into talking about it. They can tell tourist – stare at the Sky bridge long enough and it will reach the sky !

Come on lah. Get serious. The Sky Bridge is 95pc complete. All Petrofiq Sdn Bhd wants is to be paid what is owed to them. 

For how long are they supposed to wait for their money huh? 

After all Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng from the DAP (of which the MP for Kota Kinabalu Chan Foong Hin is a key member) had announced a budget of over 2 billion for Sandakan in the by election following the demise of Stephen Wong. 

The DAP retained the seat as expected so divert lah Rm20m towards this landmark project in KK. Don’t let it go to waste. 

Don’t let the Sky Bridge deteriorate the same way the DAP is deteriorating with even your chief Kit Siang being booed over the Jawi thing bah. 

The Sky Bridge was designed for connivence and safety. 

It is supposed to eliminate unfortunate accidents as a result of people crossing or dashing across the road. 

Just complete it in the interest of the general public.

On a lighter side of things, Chinese tourists in Sabah just love taking selfies. 

They take selfies of themselves walking in Gaya Street, eating durians in Segama, eating at seafood restaurants and in Tj Aru of course. 

They even take selfies right in the middle of the road. If the Sky Bridge was completed, these Chinese tourists can take selfies of themselves in a safer environment instead of doing right in the middle of the road.

Nothing is worse then hearing someone say that is a nice photo so too was the person who took that photo.
