Dark Lebuhraya Pasir Gudang stretch from Perling will get street lights – MBJB to start installing in Sept

The Lebuhraya Pasir Gudang stretch from Perling, which has seen a couple of accidents in the dark, will soon be illuminated. According to Johor chief minister Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi, the FT17 stretch from KM2.6 to KM9.4 will get 170 street lights and Majlis Bandaraya Johor Bahru (MBJB) will start the installation in September this year.

“The state government takes note of the viral road accident from Perling heading to the Lebuhraya Pasir Gudang caused by the lack of street lights,” Onn Hafiz said on Facebook, sharing a 20 second video of a recent accident on that stretch involving a car and a motorcycle as they attempted to avoid a wild boar on the road.

The Johor MB also said that the road is included in Phase 3 of the Lebuhraya Pasir Gudang widening project, which is currently in the process of appointing a consultant by the finance ministry. The project, which will be executed by the works ministry, is expected to start early next year. “I hope that these efforts will create a road system that’s more conducive and safe for all,” Onn Hafiz said.

This is yet another piece of good news for Johor, which will also get an extra lane on the PLUS from Sedenak to Senai. That project will start on June 28 and will take 36 months.

    Dasar pengutip duit orang ramai. Negara konon dah maju tapi pemikiran bodoh. Banyak lebuhraya yang baru di buka dengan lampu jalan yang di bina dengan agak rapat tetapi selepas itu akan menjadi lampu jalan hiasan tanpa cahaya. Mengutip duit setiap hari untuk apa? Kenapa bodoh sangat? Dengan lebuh raya gelap dan garisan jalan tanpa pantulan cahaya…adakah pemikiran anda seperti lembu? Saya pernah melalui lebuh raya di kawasan Melaka pada jam 5 pagi, dengan keadaan gelap rupanya ada kereta melintang di tengah jalan dalam keadaan terbalik kerana baru berlaku kemalangan tetapi saya bernasib baik sempat mengelak daripada melanggar kereta tersebut. Saya tak boleh brain dengan keadaan lebuh raya tanpa lampu jalan. Adakah semua pemandu perlu memasang lampu tinggi? Mana otak pereka lebuh raya tersebut? Lagi 1…Kenapa bina tiang lampu yang agak rapat sepanjang lebuh raya itu pada lebuh raya baru? Tak paham la korang ni punya pemikiran.

  • Kenapa tak buat lebih awal? Nak tunggu statistik kemalangan lebih tinggi? Jalan bukannya minggu lepas baru bina.
