Spotlight on Kampung Datuk for brighter streets, upgrading of roads and drainage
Posted on August 27, 2013, Tuesday
BINTULU: Street lighting facilities and upgrading of major roads including drainage system in Kampung Datuk, Kpg Masjid and Kpg Siong towards Taman Sri Dagang in the town centre, is indispensable for the safety and convenience of road users.
The chairman of the Village Security and Development Committee (JKKK) of Kpg Datuk Kaderi Junaidi said the request for street lighting is because the main road is quite dark at night, thus inviting crime such as theft, burglary and other negative elements.
He said the number of vehicles using the road is increasing and there is a need for it to be upgraded to avoid heavy traffic congestion during peak hours.
“Similarly with a spotlight installed in Taman Sri Dagang areas, it can also be installed in Kpg Datuk so that the area will be brighter,” said Kaderi when speaking at the Hari Raya open house recently.
He also urged for an upgrade on the drainage system in the village.
On a lighter note of advice, he added, “I also hope those renting houses in the village will respect their neighbours by slowing down the volume during their karaoke session.”
