KL’s new RM4mil bicycle lane project goes down the longkang! 😦
It’s not a typo, Penang govt only paid RM 4.6 mil. Rest of the cost borne by private developers under open tender
GEORGE TOWN: THE Penang government has defended its RM30 million bicycle lane project, after its hefty price tag raised the eyebrows of many.
In dismissing critics of the project cost, Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the state government had to fork out only RM4.6 million for the Queensbay-George Town stretch of the bike lane.
“Private developers had poured in the balance of RM25.4 million,” he said after launching a completed section of the bicycle lane at Gama Supermarket here.
The 1.55km link he launched near Komtar is part of a 12.5km link, and is funded mostly by Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP) at a cost of RM4.6 million.
A Penang-based property developer, BHL Waterfront Sdn Bhd, had forked out RM100,000 for the stretch.
The coastal cycle lane is part of the state government’s Bicycle Lane Masterplan.
Under the plan, local authorities and private developers will build bicycle lanes on the island (120km) and on the mainland (80km).
Lim said questions raised by certain quarters questioning the high costs were unwarranted.
He said the contract was awarded through an open tender and developers were paying for it.
“Who are we to ask why developers are paying so much? It is their money. We are happy they are building a bicycle lane for the public.”
Lim said if there were parties who were unhappy with the funding of the project, they can always lodge a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).
“Make a report and let MACC investigate us. We are not afraid,” he said, claiming that there were many lies being spread about the state government.

Can someone fr DBKL pls explain. I rode on the blue line recently and it’s rather slippery. Now this ‘divider’? And who will pay for the medical bill of the injured motorcyclist and repair cost of the bike if he did fall due to the ‘structure’?
Contractor appointed by DBKL to build bicycle lane n ‘divider’ has been asked to remove the structure. Even contractor admits it is dangerous and they have alerted DBKL earlier. p/s: Kalau nak curi gambar tolong credit, ok.

DAP opposes ‘Chinese only’ permits for CNY sales
The Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s (DBKL) proposal to limit Chinese New Year sales permits to Chinese traders only is to be opposed by DAP’s Cheras parliamentarian Tan Kok Wai.
In a Facebook posting yesterday, City Hall said the temporary permits to operate Chinese New Year goods sales stalls are open for application – but approvals are limited to the Chinese only.
Tan said the Jalan Pasar bazaar in Pudu consists of 235 stalls, half of which are run by the Chinese and the other half by non-Chinese.
“Jalan Pasar has multiracial stalls and customers… We cannot accept this DBKL condition.
“Otherwise, we will be subscribing to a racist policy,” he told a group of Jalan Pasar stallowners in Kuala Lumpur today.

ABOVE THE LAW?
Do as City Hall says, not as City Hall does
Few things rouse public indignation as quickly as the sight of the law being broken by the very people sworn to uphold it.
At the recent City Hall sports carnival at Kelab Sukan DBKL in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, several council vehicles were spotted parked illegally on the roadside and on the pavements, obstructing the path of pedestrians, especially the visually-impaired.
It did not reflect well on the city council, and wrathful motorists and residents were quick to notice and comment.
Mohan Dass, who lives in Brickfields, said obstructing the path of others was unacceptable, no matter who you were.
“We have to be considerate of the pedestrians. Moreover, the visually-impaired and the blind depend on the tactile paving for guidance. The enforcement officers would certainly have issued a summons if someone else had done this. I can only say that double standard is practised here,” he said.
