StarMetro’s report on Oct 19.StarMetro’s report on Oct 19.

PETALING Jaya City Council (MBPJ) has issued a directive to its Landscape Department to get the damaged walkway at the Astaka Sports Complex field repaired.

In reply to StarMetro’s report titled “Damaged paved path at Astaka field a risk to users” on Oct 19, MBPJ said in a statement that a small part of the pedestrian walkway was damaged by a fallen tree.

The city council said repair works on the walkway including tree clearing work would start soon.

Residents said the huge tree fell during a thunderstorm in June and has not been cleared.

StarMetro highlighted the issue after residents complained of the damaged walkway.

Broken brick tiles were reported to be strewn around while a big slab of cement blocked the walking path.

They said this was dangerous as the spot was sunken and people could easily lose their footing, especially senior citizens who exercised there regularly.

MBPJ had paved the walkway earlier this year.
