ATASI SEGERA MASALAH KESESAKAN JALANRAYA DI KINGFISHER, KOTA KINABALU

KOTA KINABALU :  Penduduk di Taman Kingfisher hari ini meminta kerajaan negeri mengatasi segera masalah kesesakan jalanraya yang berlarutan sejak bertahun-tahun lamanya.

Masalah kesesakan ini bertambah teruk terutamanya diwaktu puncak dengan meningkatnya jumlah kenderaan akibat pemusatan pentadbiran kerajaan persekutuan di Kompleks Persekutuan, pembinaan taman-taman baru seperti taman Universiti dan Millenium, pembinaan kompleks perniagaan di Alam Mesra dan 1Borneo serta Institusi Pengajian Tinggi yang semakin pesat menyebabkan lebuhraya Sulaman dan jalan susur keluar amat sesak.

Salah seorang penduduk Taman Kingfisher, Abdullah yang bertugas di Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) memberitahu setiap pagi beliau terpaksa bergegas untuk menghantar anak ke sekolah di Likas tetapi sentiasa terperangkap dengan kesesakani pergi dan balik bertugas di UMS.

Seorang lagi penduduk memberitahu rasa kecewa beliau dengan pihak berkuasa Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (DBKK) kerana gagal memberi kepastian bilakah jambatan kedua akan dibina bagi mengatasi masalah kesesakan di Taman Kingfsher menyebabkan kehidupan mereka sentiasa terganggu dan tidak tenang.

Bagi mengatasi masalah kesesakan yang berlaku beliau mencadangkan supaya kerajaan membina segera jambatan kedua dan flying over disekitar bulatan Dewan Undangan Negeri Sabah

Difahamkan kerajaan  negeri telah memperuntukkan RM 10 juta kerja-kerja menaiktaraf bagi mengatasi masalah kesesakan di bulatan Kingfisher namun sehingga hari ini masih belum ada tanda-tanda kerja-kerja tersebut akan dilaksana.

 

RM10mil Kingfisher roundabout work to end congestion

Daily Express – Published on: Sunday, February 08, 2009

Tuaran: Deputy Chief Minister cum Infrastructure Development Minister, Datuk Raymond Tan (pic), said the RM10 million upgrading work involving the Kingfisher roundabout in Likas, near here, would be completed as soon as possible.

He said this would end the traffic congestion that has been plaguing the stretch.

“We are seeking the best approach to deal with the traffic congestion in the Kingfisher area for the benefit of road users,” he said after launching the Chinese New Year celebration organised by the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park Sdn Bhd at the Salut Commercial Centre, here, Saturday.

“What we see is that the big roundabout in the area did not help ease the traffic congestion, so with the project the problem will be solved,” he said, adding the area would also be affected by flood when it rains heavily.

Among the upgrading work, Tan said, is the construction of a three-lane stretch, installation of traffic lights and an overhead bridge for vehicles.

He said the blueprint for the project has been completed, pointing out that the project would be implemented anytime.

“The project will involve the Public Works Department (PWD), Water Department and others,” he said.

Meanwhile, the PWD is working round-the-clock to re-establish the Sandakan-Kota Kinabalu road at Mile 20 that was damaged by a landslide.

“A continuous downpour caused flash floods in the surrounding low-lying areas,” Tan said, adding the Sultan of Brunei had to cancel his plans to visit the district because of the bad weather recently.
