Concern over Jalan Setia Pahlawan road

I would like to raise my concern with the current condition of the road at Jalan Setia Pahlawan in Kuala Belait.

The road is getting worse each day with uneven surface, protruding manholes, broken manhole covers and potholes among others. This creates a safety risk as I have seen cars swerving to avoid driving into these issues.

I believe the authorities are aware of these issues. Similar to Jalan Jaya Negara, this road has been undergoing repairs at least once or twice every year. This is a waste of the government’s money and I suggest authorities such as the Lembaga Bandaran Kuala Belait or JKR road Section Department Kuala Belait to visit the area and attend to the repairs.

My other suggestion is to stop trailers and other heavy vehicles from using the road as it is not designed for heavy vehicles.
