What's is wrong with roads in Malacca that the BN state government need RM3.3billion fund ?
Malacca roads including most roads in Semanjung Malaysia are the best in the region. Need over RM3 billion to re-tar and re-seal the already good roads ? This is misuse of rakyat money.
Semanjung has countless superhighway linking states and cities and towns. Multi-tier exchanges, multiple lanes tunnels, 6-8 lanes bridges, Semanjung Malaysia got it all. The luxury of big roads cover the bottom to top of the Peninsula Malaysia. Even the mountainous Genting Highlands have highways. East Malaysian, if you haven't been to Genting, there is are highways in the mountains. Got highways at Baram, Kapit, Kudasang or Ranau kah ?
What do you find in Sabah and Sarawak ? Jalan tanah banyak ler. Jalan lumpur banyak ler. Kalau ada jalan batu, sudah kira nasib baik tu.
The federal government must give more fund to Sabah and Sarawak to improve our roads. Otherwise, it unfair distribution of national wealth. We don't need fancy highways, good roads will be a blessing.
The muted ministers from Sabah and Sarawak are also playing dumb and dare not demand for road projects in East Malaysia. A bunch of yes man MP from East Malaysia. Maybe they have request for it. What we want is for them to DEMAND for more roads and bridges. Our road system in Sabah and Sarawak are the shittiest in Malaysia.
Shame on the work ministers ! Shame of state JKR ! Shame of the local MP for keeping silents.
Typical roads in Sabah and Sarawak

Malacca seeks RM3.3b for road projects
MALACCA: A total of RM3.3bil is being sought from the Federal Government for road projects in Malacca under the Ninth Malaysian Plan mid-term review.
Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamad said the allocation covered 26 construction and upgrading projects involving 439km of roads in the state.
The ministry would consider the requests and decide on the projects based on the budget, he told reporters on Thursday.
Mohd Zin, who is on his first official visit to the state since assuming his Cabinet post, attended a closed-door briefing on road projects here.
He said a proposed 100km coastal road would be given priority owing to a rise in traffic and the state's reliance on tourism.
Road projects were given priority when the volume increased to more than 20,000 cars per day, he said.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said, besides coastal roads, the state was requesting an allocation for a outer ring road that will better connect the city to surrounding towns.
