RESIDENTS of Kampung Kong Chian (formerly Kampung Lee Rubber) don’t have to put up with potholes and bad roads anymore as roads in the entire village were recently resurfaced.
Wangsa Maju MP Yew Teong Look said the narrow roads in the village had not been upgraded for more than 10-years.
“I received requests from residents for the roads and drains to be upgraded and City Hall has looked into their problem.
“A stretch of the drains in the village was recently upgraded but we are planning to upgrade drains in the entire village so that water can flow freely and there is no incidence of stagnant water.
“Residents have told me that due to stagnant water, aedes larvae was found at certain spots,” he said, adding that there had been five cases of dengue fever in the village.
Yew said the rubbish collection point at the entrance of the village was in bad shape and in need of repair.
Village head Ng Chui Chong said the 60-year old village had more than 3,000 residents.
Yew said resurfacing works of roads had been carried out at Kampung Sungai Mulia, Kampung Puah and Kampung Kuantan.
“We will be resurfacing roads in the Wangsa Maju constituency and will be doing this in stages,” he said.
