GH Road Cleared: now safe for pedestrians

The narrow road between the Paediatric Ward and Emergency Unit in Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun used to have parking bays for motorcycles on one side and pedestrians to walk on the other side. This road leads to the cafeteria and is also the entrance to the hospital from behind.

Most of the motorcyclists were inconsiderate and did not give way for the pedestrians and drove their motorcycles between the people. Pedestrians especially the elderly and those with children had to be really careful.

Things have changed and motorcycle parking along the road has been removed and the road is clear. Concrete benches are placed on one side of the road and palm trees have been planted. I have seen people sitting on the benches. The place looks neat and dustbins have been placed.

This is may be a small improvement; nevertheless we must appreciate the authorities for implementing it. Improvement can be done in small steps.

The whole hospital complex is congested and it is bound to get worse. Maybe the hospital can ask for suggestions from the public on what can be done to improve the situation.
