City Hall Propose To Build Pedestrian Bridges To Prevent Snatch Theft
Posted by anak wilayah on May 17, 2009
KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 (Bernama) — The Kuala Lumpur City Hall has proposed to build pedestrian bridges and trees along pavements to curb an increase in snatch thefts cases.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail said the building of pedestrian bridges would be focused on areas frequented by tourists, like the Bukit Bintang area.
“I have asked my officers to conduct a study together with an institution but we must first look at the implications before building. The proposal is still at the initial stage,” he told Bernama at his office here, Wednesday.
“Trees to be planted along walking paths can prevent snatch thieves from riding their motorcycles in such areas.”
Asked about a proposal to bar motorcycles from entering the city centre, Ahmad Fuad said City Hall had never made such a proposal.
He added that the proposal came from the police but the pros and cons of such a proposal must be studied in depth because it would incur a lot of hardship for those working as dispatch boys or those working on shifts.
