Reported by NST today:
KUALA LUMPUR: Dedicated motorcycle lanes will be built along federal roads to reduce road fatalities involving motorcyclists.
Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the lanes would be separated from the main roads by barriers such as trees to prevent encroachment by other vehicles.
Samy Vellu said the motorcycle lane project, estimated to cost RM300 million, would be submitted to the Cabinet once several matters had been ironed out.
He loves doing this doesn't he? Well, for all these years motorcyclist have been wanting proper lanes for them and it has before this fell onto deaf years. But all of the sudden this Sammy dude will come out with some thing that amazes all of us. So what next?
Well lets see his style....he announces a project, state it's estimated cost, then a bit later he says it will be a tolled road and the company which the gets concession will be announced. But lets just pray to god almighty that something ridiculous as putting tolls for motorcyclist will never ever come true.
To Mr. Samy: Please make sure all overpasses and bridges are free of cracks this time around.
