THE pothole problem in Taman Seri Bintang, Kuala Lumpur is frustrating residents because no action has been taken even after complaints were made to the local authorities. Taman Seri Bintang Rukun Tetangga chairman Angus Ng said the potholes in Jalan 34/38a near the SMK Sinar Bintang was filled with water. "It has been six months and the authority has not done anything to repair the potholes. We have made many complaints to the authorities but to no avail," he said. "The water splashes all over every time a car passes by. Even the paint on the road is coming off. "If the authorities decide to patch up the porthole, this is the best time because of the school holidays," said Ng.

Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said under the Government guidelines public roads should have a warranty of 10 years. "The road condition here is terrible. The road surface is uneven and there are so many potholes. The potholes reappear even after patch work is done as the quality of work is not good enough. "Just after a few weeks, we can already see cracks appearing on the surface," said Lim. He added that this was not a problem confined to one area as pothole issues were prevalent everywhere. "Potholes can be found all over Kuala Lumpur and not only does it damage cars but it can be dangerous for motorcyclists travelling at night," Lim said.

Ng also said illegal parking in Jalan Seri Bintang 1 and Jalan Seri Bintang 2 was making it difficult for motorists to manoeuvre their vehicles in the area. "We cannot blame the people for parking illegally as there are not enough parking bays in the area. "However, when vehicles are coming from both directions the road is too narrow for them to pass. We proposed to the Kuala Lumpur City Council to turn it into a one-way road five years ago. "But so far nothing has been done," he said.
