Poor Condition Of Terminal Bas Wawasan, Kota Kinabalu
Woke up in the morning everyday doing my chores and getting ready to go to work. My preffered way of transport is the bus as it is cheaper and well i still dont have my driving license. I've been working in Kota Kinabalu since 2009 until now and nothing has change much. My morning journey will be from Gracecourt then coming to Kampung Sembulan. We will pass Kompleks Tabung Haji then to Sadong where the KWSP building is. When we finally arrive to the terminal its like going through a gravel road with hole nearly on every corner of the road. The road is dusty when the sun shining bright. Making us feel like we in the desert of sand. Worst when the rain comes road is like a puddle of water and mud. We have to be careful not to step in any hole if we dont want to fell. Since 2009 the condition never improve but worsen day by day. I have seen an effort to repair it, but all the time the work stop and still no improvement. Everytime theres a repair work being done it will only finish halfway. I dont know why this happen. Yes, terminal Wawasan is the only place for busess from all around Kota Kinabalu, Tuaran, Penampang, Papar, etc. In my mind maybe they cant do the repair since busess will have no place to stop. However, in 2010 there is another terminal build across the road. But it only been used for 1 month and has closed down until now. In my opinion, why not build one more terminal on that place (the terminal across the old terminal) improve the condition, with necessesary thing such as asphalt/tar road, bus stop and etc. When this new terminal is finish, re-route the busess there then start on improving the old terminal. This can make sure that while the old terminal is repaired no busess will come in and out disturbing the repair works. Maybe you guys wondering why i bother to give this complaint. But if we think this through, no one wants a place which have so many broken thing in it. Its such an eye sore moreover it is so disturbing for bus user such as me. Not only for us the citizen of Sabah but tourist also come to the terminal to travel to places. Moreover the terminal is located in Kota Kinabalu a city which is one of the popular tourist spot. Are we not ashamed with this worst condition. We should get much better then this.
