Thanks to the efforts of Tony Wee who had written to the Member of Parliament for Klang, YB Charles Santiago, and providing his office with a link to the blog posting on the accident two days ago.
YB Charles Santiago has written to JKR urging action on their part to resolve our road safety issue. The letter has been copied to the Minister for Public Works and the deputy head of Majlis Perbandaran Klang plus other usual suspects, as listed.
Thank you YB Charles Santiago!
Update: JKR Klang has ordered GCD to complete the speed humps by the second week of October. This was in response to the complaint filed by Yin and a few other residents via the JKR website. This plus the MP’s letter copied to the Minister shook things up a bit I’d imagine. JKR has also stated in the letter sent to the individuals (like Mrs Wong of P1, Tony Wee P1, Yin P2, Daren Ong P2, Choo P2 and Gary Geh P2) who filed complaints that they will monitor the progress of the works ordered to ensure a satisfactory job is being done.
Thank you all for your efforts.
I’d still very much like to know if anyone has any knowledge about the passenger in the smaller car who was hurt. I pray she is okay.
The speed humps will afford us some protection and whilst the fight has definitely been worthwhile, there is for me still a bitter after taste in that it took a real accident to jolt them into action. There
was simply no demonstration of a sense of responsibility and that is
what disappoints me the most. I’d like to think that the GCROA has done it’s best to fill that vacuum.
