No more chaotic parking

Less worries: An additional 88 parking bays will be added at Hospital Sultan Ismail to overcome the congestion problem.

JOHOR BARU: The chaotic and haphazard parking situation at Hospital Sultan Ismail (HSI) here will soon be a thing of the past, with more parking bays being introduced, says Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi.

He said upgrades to the hospital’s parking area, including 88 additional bays, came from the state government’s allocation of RM500,000 in August last year.

“The new parking bays are now open to the public.

“I hope the upgrade will also reduce traffic congestion, which has been an issue at the hospital for years,” he said in a Facebook post after visiting the site yesterday.

Onn Hafiz added that the upgrades were made possible with the cooperation of state health and unity committee chairman Ling Tian Soon, as well as relevant agencies such as the Health Department and Public Works Department.

“Apart from upgrading the parking area, the state government had previously allocated RM95,000 to replace HSI’s polycarbonate roofs and RM75,000 to add linked chairs for its waiting area.

“We always try our best to assist the Health Ministry in providing quality service for the comfort of the Johor people,” he said.

Last August, Onn Hafiz announ-ced an allocation of RM670,000 to upgrade the hospital’s facilities.
