Some Roadside Trees Are Killers!

Director of Malaysia Road Safety Department Datuk Suret Singh said in Kuching yesterday that some roadside beautification trees are really killers!

Datuk Suret Singh truly said out the feelings of certain Sibuians who have to face huge roadside trees blocking their view day in, day out!

If you are not aware of it, just go to Brooke Drive and see it for yourself!

For years Sibuians have been sending feedback to the local council on this safety issue. Sadly it has apparently been brushed aside on "tree conservation" ground.

A big thumb up to Datuk Suret Singh for bringing the issue out!
