Potholes along Jalan Aminuddin Baki, TTDI getting worse
THE long delay in fixing potholes along Jalan Aminuddin Baki in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, has residents worried.
Resident James Ng, 64, said Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) had the duty to take care of all ratepayers.
“DBKL has the moral duty to maintain the infrastructure, especially if its inaction will endanger taxpayers.
“Is DBKL waiting for an accident to happen and will it be responsible?” he asked.
Elaine Khoo, 40, pointed out that Jalan Aminuddin Baki was a busy road as there were many eateries, shops and banks located there.
“Motorists drive very slowly along this stretch to avoid damaging their vehicles and this slowdown causes congestion.

REPERCUSSIONS FROM LANDO AND HIS BAND’S MISSION TO FILL IN POTHOLES!
Malay Mail Online
City Hall freezes new road projects by utility firms
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 12 — Utility companies will not be allowed to carry out new roadworks in the city for a month with immediate effect as City Hall seeks a solution to the mess created by them.
Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said approval for new works had been frozen because many utility companies were responsible for creating road hazards when they failed to comply with City Hall’s regulations.
“Utility companies are leaving it to their contractors to clean up the mess whenever they upgrade or maintain their equipment beneath the roads,” he said in response to a Malay Mail report on Thursday about a sunken manhole in Taman Sri Rampai just a few metres away from a stretch of road recently resurfaced by City Hall.
“This is causing the road quality to suffer and we have decided to stop allowing them to carry on with new projects until we review their standard operating procedures to work on the roads,” Ahmad Phesal said.
He said applications that had been approved would be allowed to continue under controlled monitoring.
“If they do not complete the job satisfactorily, City Hall will hold on to their deposits.”
City Hall requires utility companies to pay a deposit of RM10,000 and RM270 per metre of road affected.
LANDO AND HIS BAND OF POTHOLE FIGHTERS AGREE TO HELP INFORM THE CITY COUNCIL ABOUT POTHOLES.
However, there is a catch.
Lando, “If the council still does not address the problem within three days, then my group will go ahead with our repair works.”

Citizen roadpatchers to work with City Hall in fight against potholes
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 11 — Ikatan Silaturrahim Brotherhood leader Azlan Sani Zawawi will work hand-in-hand with City Hall to highlight unattended potholes and manholes that pose a danger to motorists.
The 40-year-old line producer, more commonly known as Lando, was added into an exclusive Whatsapp chat group with senior City Hall officials after meeting its civil engineering and drainage department senior deputy director Abdul Aziz Yusoff in Taman Sri Rampai yesterday.
The Whatsapp group, comprising individuals from telecommunications companies, utility agencies and City Hall officers, serves as a platform for the council to attend to complaints on manholes and potholes in the city.
“I am glad to be added into the group as it will enable me to forward pictures and complaints of unrepaired roads to City Hall,” Lando said.

IN PENANG, THEY CARE ABOUT MOTORCYCLISTS!
GEORGE TOWN: The state government has repaired 30 roads in Air Itam.
Air Itam assemblyman Wong Hon Wai said the resurfacing and repair work, which started in June, cost RM681,000.
He said the work was carried out in four phases and was completed last week.
“The safety of motorcyclists is our main concern. Many roads in Air Itam were full of potholes and there have been many accidents involving motorcyclists because of the poor road condition.
“We are happy that we have completed the task of ensuring all roads in the area are safe to use,” he said after attending coring tests in Jalan Shaik Madar recently.
HERE IS A COMMENT THAT IS OFFFENSIVE, TO SAY THE LEAST.
I have a question for Adrian: Please show me and others just how I have taken “Everything out of context”?
By the way, it isn’t quite correct to say “for a few more hits on your little blog”.
This posthas 7,000 hits in 2 days. What is this nit-picking about “a few more hits”, Adrian?
As for mine being a “little blog”, it’s relative, isn’t it, Adrian?
Mine is really a “little blog” as it has ONLY 2,170,441 hits for the 3 years and 3 months of its existence, unlike Scott Thong’s blog, Buuuuurrrrning Hot, which has 4,721,052 hits.
By the way, Scott Thong is my eldest son. In the world of blogging, our relationship is that of “Like son, like father”. He started first, and he is my model. I’m proud to be his “junior” when it comes to blogging.
And don’t ever compare my teeny weeny pretence of a blog to Helenang, bless her, with 5,083,577 hits.
By the way, Adrian, do you blog?

THESE PICTURES ARE WHAT MADE THE MAYOR FURIOUS!
THE MAYOR HAS SPOKEN, “IF WE DON’T FILL IN THE POTHOLES, IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU CAN!”
He has ordered Azlan Sani Zawawi and the Silaturrahim Brotherhood to immediately stop their voluntary work.
Basically, he doesn’t want to be shown in a bad light. If you fell because you rode over a pothole, so be it. If you’re dead, you’re dead. Just leave their potholes alone!
Silaturrahim Brotherhood conducted road repairs following a lack of response from local authorities.

Disgruntled with state of some KL roads, bikers fix potholes themselves
Azlan Sani Zawawi, @ Lando. a spokesperson for a biker association called Silaturrahim Brotherhood, says potholes are not a small problem as they could prove fatal especially for motorcyclists.
KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 2, 2014:
As the saying goes, sometimes when you want things done right, you need to do them yourself.
A biker association, called Silaturrahim Brotherhood, said if the damaged roads were not paved by Thursday, they would do it themselves.
A spokesman for the group, Azlan Sani Zawawi said potholes were not a small problem as they could be fatal, especially for motorcyclists.
In fact, he said, some of the concerned members of the club had themselves patched some potholes around the capital although this was the responsibility of local authorities.
“Our aim of paving the roads is not to take over the task of the local authorities, but because complaints made by road users, particularly motorcyclists, saw no immediate action being taken by the relevant authority.
“You are all paid, but the Brotherhood does the work for free and without funds, so do something before it’s too late,” said the man, who was often known as Lando, when called by The Rakyat Post today.

Check with DBKL before fixing potholes, mayor tells volunteers
The Mayor of Kuala Lumpur today asked a group of bikers, led by actor Azlan Sani Zawawi, who were going around repairing potholes in the city to refer with Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) before carrying out any voluntary repair works.
Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib (pic) said this was because the patching up of potholes is the sole responsibility of DBKL.
He said, in a statement, that it was not right for members of the public to carry out works that were under the local authority’s purview.
“This is DBKL’s responsibility and it needs to be referred directly to them,” Phesal said, responding to The Rakyat Post’s report last week on the bikers’ effort to repair potholes in Taman Sri Rampai, Wangsa Maju and Wangsa Melawati.

Good Samaritans get a telling off by KL mayor
In an earlier report on the same news portal, Azlan or Lando as he prefers to be called, explained he has lost two friends and an uncle after they crashed while avoiding road hazards.
Joined by his wife, Lando has spent close to RM20,000 to hire lorries and purchase gravel, tar and other equipment to level the roads.
He said, “I prefer to use my own money. It took some time to save up but I managed to gather the funds by selling T-shirts and merchandise from my business.”
