The Works Ministry will check whether federal funds for state and municipal roads properly are used for road maintenance based on complaints received.
The funds are provided for under the Malaysian Road Records Information System (Marris). They will send a team to check on this. The ADUN is responsible to plan how best it can be used. Unused portion will be forfeited.
The annual Marris allocation is made based on the road length, and based on this, the allocation are given. Before I found out this, I thought the state are funding all road maintenance which are not federal roads. JKR only maintains federal road. You notice that Jalan Kewajipan has the JKR logo on its road name signboard. I have a feeling that this whole stretch of Jalan Kewajipan will be fully resurfaced once the LRT project is completed early next year. So meantime we got to bear the shit.
We are talking about maintenance works where normally the allocation is separately done.
2 different issues
Maybe I'm the unlucky one, seems nearly every road I've been driving through at PJ for past 3-4 weeks..sure can meet some digging or construction work on that road, left,right, or center.
Like the old saying, "after road is resurfaced, then comes the utilities companies or road works departments come digging it up again for something, then patch again, then dig, patch, dig patch..and it goes on and on and on..no end"
Last last come one fine day..some big shot say "THIS TOWNSHIP NO PLANNING WAN!!!!"
The short stretch at the temporary U-turn along Jalan Kemajuan Subang just before the Subang Parade traffic light was so shoddily done that after 2 weeks, the road surface became worse off as the top 2 inch of the road surface was eroded away due to the poor ratio mixture of the tar and sand. That section became very bumpy. I read that MPSJ can do a quality check but how come the contractor can get away with this crime. The other bumpy stretch at the bus stop at the F1 loop has just been repaired.
Bitumen would likely be the main compound in road tar. Tar being a general description of the thick gooey stuff used. You don't expect bitumen in cigarette or tobacco tar?
Tar had not been used for at least 40 years now.
