I would not expect that to be free if it's inside my gate.
I have a landed house in Malacca. I can understand what you mean.
Before GE12 (2008), the local council resurfaced the road in front of the house with new tarmac except the frontal entrance of houses. My Dad who live in the house told me the contractor requested money to tarmac the entrance area but he didn't want to pay.
I asked a contractor that I know to cement the frontal area.. the cement is still in good condition until now.
Can someone tell me up to which point is our responsibility? Today, a MPSJ contractor came around asking for RM250 to pave the front entrance to my residence.
Sorry for the late reply. I lived in USJ12. Early this month, the whole of USJ12 was retarred. The retarring INCLUDES your driveway from your gate to the road. They will first retar all the driveway FOC. This is p okart of the scope of work. But if there is a Lorong, they will NOT retar it at all. In my case, I managed to negociate with them and got it done for free. Hope to take some photo to show them here.
usually the roving free lancer reTarring labourers are local indians cari makan only...but many years ago when Funny Toupeed & Spitting Semi-Value was boss of MIC, he with his cronies imported thousands & thousands of sub continent indian peasants, farmers, fishermen, st peddlars to be duh JKR road gang workers in the then Bolehland...with all the JKR supervisors & engineers all minum teh tarik, makan pisang goreng in the warong a few kilometers away...

They use those small portable compactor to do those small jobs. can expect it to do a good job.
Isn't that lane also public road? How is it it's not paved?
After coming around, I have still not seen any signs of them preparing to do the paving. Think it was another scam.
Die lah if this Lorong is a public road. Actually this Lorong is the usual firebreak which is mandatory for a row, if there are, say more than 20 terrace houses. There should be a gap of at least 20 feet. The lorong is usually cement rendered. More ever this is not a drive through. It zig zagged over a small drain thus preventing mat rempit to take a short cut. That is the reason why I chose to buy this house that also came with a 10 foot build up terrace where I can even place a ping pong table there. I can easily park 5 cars at the lorong. Chang is right when he labelled this a a private car park. That is why MPSJ did not include it to be retarred. But those Samy "Velued" guy were so nice to come with the balance tar and a compactor to finish off the job. I provided those 4 workers with biscuits and drinks.
