Residents in Taman Pandan Perdana are frustrated over the lack of urgency by the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) in addressing the problem of big potholes along Jalan Perdana Utama in Ampang.
According to Pandan Glades Rukun Tetangga chairman Terrence Ee, they have made several complaints to MPAJ but the council did not seem to take heed of the complaints.
He said MPAJ had patched up almost 80% of the roads in the area but Jalan Perdana Utama was left out.
“This is a main road and not a backlane, so it is important they address the problem because the potholes are at least four inches deep.
“There have been several accidents involving motorcyclists as well as cars being damaged,” he said, adding that the bad road condition has been left attended for about six months.
Ee said councillor Dorothy Cheong had also not looked into their requests despite being notified of the complaints.
“Incidentally, the councillor also lives in the area and uses the road too, so I wonder why they have not resolved the issue.
“If they patched up the road in front of the residents committee office, why not the main road?” he asked.
Meanwhile, Perdana Court manager Raymond Ng said they, too, had lodged several complaints with MPAJ.
“There are many accidents and cars damaged at the potholed stretch.
“It is dangerous because the potholes are deep and motorists would not be able to see it when it rains,” he said.
When contacted MPAJ engineering department director Hasrolnizam Shaari said they would carry out work to patch the potholes this week.
