February 27, 2016

Minister Liow Tiong Lai says comprehensive study needed to solve traffic congestion in areas designated to them besides the risk of accidents occurring.


KUALA TERENGGANU: The Transport Ministry will conduct a detailed study on the proposal to allow the ‘Mat Rempit’ group to race on the roads in the federal capital as it involved many parties with certain risks.

Its minister Liow Tiong Lai said a comprehensive study was needed to solve the traffic congestion that would occur in the area designated to them besides the risk of accidents involving them.

“Most importantly if the proposal is implemented, the parties concerned have to identify the closure of certain areas for the racing activities on the roads that must meet safety requirements,” he said after officiating the Chap Goh Meh carnival at Kampung Cina here today.

He was commenting on the proposal by Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor that the government provide motorcycle race tracks in certain areas in the federal capital for youths keen on the activity.
