I REFER to the Opinion by Disappointed and Frustrated Bruneian entitled ‘Waiting on status of access road at Spg 472’ in the Borneo Bulletin, November 19, 2014 issue where the relevant agency was requested to take action.
As a responsible citizen I would like to highlight some issues before any decisions can be taken by the relevant agency.
- The width of the access road at Spg 472 is small and only fit for one car. Therefore it is not practical and is a safety hazard to let more vehicles use Spg 472.
- The lamppost that has been erected and the metal fence was constructed well before the new houses were built.
- During the construction, Spg 462-29 (which was State Land Reserve access road) was used to bring materials and services to the new houses. Why when the houses are completed, Disappointed and Frustrated Bruneian insists on letting the authority concerned to open up the narrow Spg 472 for them? Why not continue to use Spg 462-29?
- When land is subdivided, the access road is meant for the subdivision land owners as part of the land being surrendered to the government. Disappointed and Frustrated Bruneian wants to have access to Spg 472 which was never reserved for the new houses in the first place.
