Last Saturday (6 October), Gerakan Batu Division visited the Pangsapuri Sentul Utara in order to take part in a cleaning and beautification activity, while at the same time to interact with the local residents in order to understand their livelihood problems.

Gerakan Youth Secretary General, Dr. Dominic Lau Hoe Chai who took part in the activity pointed out that Pangsapuri Sentul Utara is currently facing many livelihood problems, on which traffic jam is more serious than the others. This is because there is a U-turn at the main road which is not marked in yellow box and led to cars passing by did not make way for cars intended to make a U-turn and subsequently caused traffic jam. Besides, the residents are also facing the problem of outsiders entering the neighbourhood of their flat, this is because until today the flat has yet to employ a security guard and led to many unknown outsiders including drug addicts often gather at the neighbourhood, cars from the outside occupied the parking lots and did not leave for a long time, many people even parked their car in the neighbourhood in order to buy foods at the market without the need to pay for the parking. Other problems including the poor road condition of the neighbourhood, rubbish was thrown inconsiderately from the PPR flat nearby, objects were also thrown from height and broke the car windscreen and many more problems.

“It is understood that the residents of the flat have filed numerous complaints to the DBKL to reflect these problems, however no actions were taken so far. In this regard, Gerakan Batu Division will contact DBKL to reflect the problems faced by the residents and look for solutions for each problem, while at the same time we will meet the management committee in order to discuss the necessity of hiring security guards,” said Dr. Dominic Lau.

Dr. Dominic Lau also added that Gerakan would continue to serve the residents of Batu parliamentary constituency, solve the problems they encounter in daily life and livelihood as well as to improve their quality of life.
