The traffic cop on standby to direct the traffic flow!
A section of the miles-long traffic!
Jalan Kg. Nyabor - This area needs an urgent follow-up action to fill up.
Whenever flood hits Sibu, the traffic on Brooke Drive, Jalan Wong King Hoe, Jalan Kg. Nyabor and Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg gets clogged up badly, making driving a frustrating task there.
The recurrent miles-long jam is chiefly caused by severe sectional flooding at Jalan Pedada, Jalan Lanang and Jalan Wong king Hoe where low-lying parts are very flood-prone. As such, when flood swamps, the traffic there has to be diverted onto Brooke Drive and Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg.
This woe has been with us for donkey's years and much lip service has been offered, but so far little has been done.
All that we have to do is to level off the affected main roads first before we talk about the ambitious flood mitigation projects. As a first step, this would at least ease off the flood-related jams.
