RESIDENTS of Kampung Tersusun Klebang Selatan and Kampung Sri Kelebang in Ipoh are urging the local authority to repair an uneven road in their area.

The 200m stretch is riddled with potholes, unmarked speed bumps and illegal dumpsites.

A resident, who wanted to be known only as Sulaiman, said the road had been in a poor state for the past three months.

He added that heavy vehicles carrying gravel and sand for a housing project nearby were to blame.

“There’s dust everywhere and it has become dangerous to road users. The potholes have become deeper and bigger due to the growing number of lorries and other vehicles plying the road daily.”

Another resident Yahya Razak, 56, expressed concern over the increase in dumpsites along the road.

“Not only are they an eyesore, they also endanger the lives of road users.”

ACTIONLINE:

An Ipoh City Council (MBI) spokesman said the council would start repairing the road soon.

He added that the council would also look into the illegal dumpsites.

“For a start, the council will put up signboards to warn the public against littering.

“Illegal dumpsites have always been a problem.

“MBI has done its best to make sure the city is clean. The issue can be resolved only if the people play their role by not littering.”
