Hakim Hayat

The Ministry of Transport and Infocommunications (MTIC) will find a solution on the issue of delayed installation of bus stops or poles nationwide, said Minister of Transport and Infocommunications Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Awang Abdul Mutalib bin Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Setia Dato Paduka Haji Mohd Yusof during the 17th Legislative Council (LegCo) session yesterday.

Responding to a query by LegCo member Yang Berhormat Pengiran Haji Mohamed bin Pengiran Haji Osman @ Othman, the minister said that issues with public bus routes have delayed the project, adding that it needs route coordination but assured that the MTIC and the Land Transport Department are still constantly finding ways for the best routes before the bus stops or poles can be installed.

He shared that more than 483 bus stops are still pending installation due to the non-alignment of the locations.
