Action urged on fallen tree, overgrown weeds

SIPITANG: Kampung Kesili residents are disappointed with the poor condition of the road after a fallen tree was not cleared, making it uncomfortable for them to use.

A resident who declined to be named told Daily Express on Monday that the road condition, especially on the roadsides, was too overgrown and dangerous to pass through.

For the residents, the road is vital as it connects the village to the town.

“At night, residents are afraid to use it because not only is there no street lighting, but the overgrown condition of weeds could attract wild animals like snakes and others,” the resident said.

The road became overgrown with weeds after a tree fell and was only partially cleared by the residents, who hope the concessionaire will clean it regularly.

Former Sindumin Community Development Leader, Sani Miasin, said the road is under the purview of the Pemborong Kekal Mewah concessionaire.

“They are responsible for cleaning the road for the convenience of residents,” he said.

Sani claimed that Pemborong Kekal Mewah is responsible for cleaning all roads registered with the government, which should have a contractor or cleaning concessionaire in charge.

“It is hoped that the concessionaire will not neglect its responsibility in carrying out its duties to ensure the roads under its care are always clean,” he added.
