The road is full of loose gravel and there are no streetlights
A CONTRACTOR'S failure to complete road upgrading works at KM 24, Jalan Gelang Patah--Lima Kedai, here, had made the 200-metre stretch accident-prone.
The road is full of loose gravel and there are not enough streetlights, making it dangerous for road users, especially motorcyclists, at night.
Labourer K. Krisna Murthi, 43, was injured when he fell from his motorcycle on his way to work.
"The accident happened at about 6 am. It was still dark and there were no warning signs. So when I arrived at the location, I lost control of the motorcycle and fell.
"Fortunately, the car behind me was moving slowly and was able to avoid hitting me. If not, my injuries would have been more serious." he said.
Krisna suffered a fracture in his right hand and cuts to his head and face, causing him to miss work for one month.
Nusajaya assemblyman Datuk Abdul Aziz Sapian, who visited the area, voiced disappointment with the contractor, appointed by the Public Works Department, for failing to complete the project.
"It looks like the contractor is not concerned about public safety because there were not enough warning signs and streetlights," said Aziz.
PWD representative Md Saat Kana said the upgrading project was supposed to be completed in three days.
"However, because of the weekend and public holiday, the project was behind schedule," he added.
