KOTA KINABALU: Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) Api-Api Division Information Chief Yee Tsai Yiew lauds efforts undertaken by the Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK) to improve parking issues here.
She said the DBKK is currently studying the possibility of implementing a digital parking application, as well as proposing amendments to its bylaws.
Speaking after a courtesy call on Kota Kinabalu Mayor Datuk Noorliza Awang Alip recently, Yiew said they discussed various issues, including the possibility of issuing a new monthly pass for yellow parking spaces.
“Currently, only green parking spaces in Kota Kinabalu have monthly passes. Thus, the DBKK is considering expanding the monthly passes for yellow parking spaces for the convenience of the public, especially office workers,” she said.
She hopes that once the digital parking application is successfully developed, it would not only solve various parking issues but also bring about many conveniences to the public.
Besides parking issues, Yiew also highlighted the issue of road safety, particularly the dangerous U-turn along Jalan Teluk Likas heading towards the Sabah International Convention Centre (SICC).
“The Mayor expressed her intention to raise this matter with the State Public Works Department,” said Yiew.
She also took the opportunity to thank the Mayor for listening to public complaints and promptly addressing the issues, demonstrating DBKK’s high regard for the people’s wellbeing.
Also joining Yiew were Api-Api Chinese Community Leaders Kapitan Lim Vun Chan, Kapitan Fung Chun Fatt and Kapitan Chee Siaw Siaw, Api-Api Community Development Leader (PPM) Oliver Majaham, and PBS N.20 Api- Api Division Treasurer Lai Chuen How.
