I have a serious bone to pick with our Works Minister.
Just what kind of tar is he using to tar our roads?? To be more accurate, just what kind of poeple is the Works Ministry hiring? Not less than a week after the workers finish tarring the road and filling the potholes, the holes has begun to reappear along the stretch of road in front of Kelana Square and the road leading into Jalan SS7/19!
And that has caused considerable damage to my poor two year old Honda City car (which I christened Streaker). Took the car for a routine check up today, only to have the mechanic being shocked to feel why my car is being unstable. They put the car into a lifting contraption and lifted the car to check the bottom. They found that oil was leaking from the two back wheels and some nuts and bolts have turned loose – an indication of the hazards of driving on severely pot-holed roads. RM320 worth of repairs later, my mechanic warned me that its better to steer clear of holes and try to avoid them if possible. If I know of a pot-holed road, I should find an alternative way instead of using that poorly maintained road.
I drove home all the way cursing Samy Vellu for his men’s poor, poor work and maintenance of our roads. If he doesn’t repair the roads anytime soon, I will lodge a complain! Hmph!! 😡
