Blocked drainage was the main reason for flash floods in Miri. Few years back, a major flash flood occurred at Piasau and it was due to the city council’s contractor failure to clean or remove sand/earth from the drainage system. The same problem caused the recent flash flood, whereby our main monsoon drain overflowed and spilt the excess water into many housing areas along Pujut-Miri, Piasau, Jalan Bulan Sabit, etc.
Also, nobody expect our monsoon drain was the main caused. All because nobody pay attention to its maintenance.
Nevertheless, the City Council have repaired sidewalks, backyard lane in my housing area. Thumb ups to those good contractors. To those who did not perform and only good in spending the collection from assessment rates – terminate them immediately! There are many other Class F contractors who can perform better but was not given the opportunity to do so.
Author do not have any Class F licence so no offend! And.. Mayor Lai, YB Andy, Datuk Lee, Datuk Peter.. our Science Museum is in need of a fresh paint too!
