Nightmarish ride on road to Teku Bazaar
URGENT REPAIR NEEDED: Driving through this potholed road to Teku Bazaar is like riding on horseback
SIBU: For almost a decade, motorists using the old road leading to Teku Bazaar have to gallop through its nightmarish road surface.
A resident said he had been hoping that the authority would one day come to upgrade the road.
“This hope has fizzled out,” he lamented.
Heavy vehicles like lorries and cargo trucks are damaging the road surface.
“These road giants roll up and down the road almost everyday,” he noted.
And when there were damages, the authority did nothing more than make piece-mill repairs, he said, pointing to the patches lining the road.
“We’re like straddling down the road on a horse,” said another resident, tongue in cheek.
He added: “Road in Chinese is called `ma lu’ (horse road). It’s indeed fitting for our road.”
The resident, who only wished to be identified by his surname Wong, said the road was getting narrower due to erosion on both sides.
Wong also felt that the road was not well lit, rendering the use of the road at night dangerous.
He acknowledged that they had another route to the Teku Bazaar, but that should not be good reason to leave the old road in a state of disrepair.
