KUALA Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has started repairs on the damaged drains along the back lanes of Jalan Khoo Teik Ee and Jalan Horley following complaints by residents.
“Barricades have been placed near the damaged parts of the drains on both sides of the road to alert pedestrians.
“DBKL is carrying out rectification work on the drains as well as the damaged roads, ” a spokesperson said.
On June 15, StarMetro reported that Imbi residents had urged DBKL to fix the damaged drains and resurface the roads riddled with potholes.
The residents feared that the poor condition of the roads and drains would pose a safety hazard to motorists and pedestrians, especially the elderly.
At the site, workers were seen repairing the damaged drains.
Bags of cement and construction material were placed nearby.
“DBKL took the residents’ complaints seriously and repair works are being done by our appointed contractor.
“The repair works will be done in accordance with the standard operating procedure set by the National Security Council,” added the spokesperson.
