Still using poor quality material for pavements


AT the April MBPJ Council meeting, a member highlighted the poor quality material used in the construction of the pavements in Petaling Jaya.

Displaying the material he had collected from a collapsed pavement, he reminded members that the council pays the contractors well and that the ratepayers should not be shortchanged.

This morning I drove along the road in front of the Chartered Bank and the workers were still using the same chalk-like material.

The work was so shoddily done that the material had actually “splashed” on a beautiful row of white lilies planted by the agricultural section. One builds and one destroys! I would like to know why the engineering department has still not taken action to bring the contractors to task.

What is the purpose of council meetings – merely rhetorical without the will to implement?
