I AGREE with the various letters on road signage in Malaysia, and in particular the Klang valley.
I have always wondered, with some highway concessionaires, whether road signages were erected by them and done in such a way to benefit them most?
If so, why aren’t the powers that be doing anything to correct it?
May I suggest signages also direct road users to the various highways by name, too?
I would like to highlight one very confusing situation in the Klang Valley if one were to drive from Damansara on the Elite Highway heading towards Bukit Jalil.
Even as a local, I always get very lost trying to get onto the Kesas Highway, which is actually the best option.
I would end up following the signage to Puchong instead and then get even more confused upon entering Puchong and not knowing what to do next!
I guess there must have been countless hours lost for many motorists, and will continue to be, as many sporting events and/or gatherings are held at the stadiums there.
Another matter of discontent is who is responsible for main-tenance?
We always see signages that are blocked by tree branches.
I have been to many countries and never needed a road map or a GPS system to drive to a destination because the road signages are so user-friendly.
Places of interest are colour coded, so even a dummy tourist such as yours truly can easily get to the destination.
So, let’s hope we will see some improvements soon!
