MELAKA: The two controversial shortcuts - now scheduled to be closed - connecting Pulau Nibong to Jalan Akasia 4 and Jalan Akasia 7 respectively, were opened without consulting the residents of Taman Akasia in Pengkalan Batu here, says the residents association.

The man responsible for the shortcuts was Md Derus Tompang, the 58-year-old who was seen having a heated exchange with Pengkalan Batu assemblyman Norhizam Hassan Baktee in a recent viral video, claims Taman Akasia Residents Association chairman Mohd Shari Mohamed Amin.
