Kepayan Assemblywoman Jannie Lasimbang said the concerns over Taman Farmosa's access road issue in Bundusan is under the watchful eye of the constituency's service.
She said the people from the DAP Kepayan service centre has done a quick survey on the road access and will look into attaining more information from the Penampang District Council office to ensure the safety of the roads for the users in the said area.
Jannie, who is also Assistant Law and Native Affairs Minister, was responding to the press regarding residents' concerns over the Taman Farmosa main entrance road, which is also the back road for the Gardens Condominium.
According to a representative of Taman Farmosa, Bong, the road is not parallel and at the same level, making the road hazardous to the public and residents. On top of that, he said there are a couple of high-voltage towers just beside the road.
Bong said the residents have urged relevant authorities not to rush the issuance of Occupancy Certificate (OC) for the Gardens Condominium until the safety issues had been resolved.
New Penampang District Officer (DO), Robert Stidi said the council was withholding any further action until an ongoing civil case involving two developers had been adjourned with a definite court decision.
He clarified the council would not issue any OC for The Gardens development until a court dispute had been settled and confirmed that the development would not have an official access road.
"We are waiting. I think with the advice of the State Attorney General, we wait for the court's decision before the council can make any decisions pertaining the issue," he explained, adding that the council will consider the concerns of the residents and would request for the relevant authorities to deal with safety road issues should there be any requirements to do so.
