Busy Sunday

It has been a busy Sunday in Parit Raja. As the new semester at UTHM starts tomorrow, senior students are seen flocking back to the University. Some are back on their own while others are sent by their parents. At the same time, Defence Minister Dato Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi officiates an UMNO-organised event at the town's new Dewan Orang Ramai. Thus, these contribute to heavy traffic flow along the Batu Pahat-Air Hitam highway stretch and occupied parking lots especially around the hall. The beginning of the new semester also marks the return of brisk business to many shops especially eating outlets as the University students are regular goers to these places. This afternoon, students are seen having their lunch at restaurants and stalls around this town.

Safety First

It is wonderful and worthwhile when we can utilize a fully equipped stretch of road from Batu Pahat to Kluang.However, it also takes a long winding road ( a proverb) to wait for this stretch of road to be completed. Everyday,motocyclists,car drivers and even school children jeopardize their lives driving along and using the road.I have not seen much improvement being done on the construction of the road, especially on U turns. And, it's quite dark when you drive at nights.With the Kembara Mahkota Johor just around the corner, something should be done .Let's just hope that the people of Parit Raja is safe while using the road...
