A VANDALISED fence in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI), Kuala Lumpur, is not only an eyesore, but also a safety hazard.

Located in the commercial area around Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi, the fence was damaged last week.

“It was installed to prevent snatch thefts in this area.

“With the fence, motorists couldn’t get near pedestrians,” said Aini Fatiya, a frequent visitor to the area.

She claimed that parts of the fence were falling on the road, blocking traffic.

A shopkeeper, who only wished to be known as Razman, said most of his customers had complained to him about the vandalised fence.

“The fence is really an eyesore. There are sharp edges to it that could harm unsuspecting pedestrians,” he said.


ACTIONLINE

Shopkeepers and visitors of TTDI will be pleased to learn that Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will replace the vandalised parts of the fence.

“A team from the Civil Engineering and Urban Transportation Department will go to TTDI to fix the fence.

“We appreciate the public’s concern, and they can lodge any complaint on community issues at ispaaadbkl.dbkl.gov.my or call 1800883255,” said a DBKL spokesman.
