Last Update: 06/07/2019
MIRI, July 6 (Bernama) – The viralled message on social media that the front portion of the road from Columbia Hospital to Petronas Service Station along Jalan Bulan Sabit, one of Miri city’s busiest street, is in danger of collapsing is not true.
Piasau state assemblyman Datuk Sebastian Ting Chiew Yew said the viralled message including the audio that alleged “the road may collapse at anytime” due to the ongoing underground construction for sewerage project was fake following a check at the project site this morning.
“Further checks at the site, (revealed) the actual tunneling work has not started in the specific locations as mentioned in the message,” he said in a statement here today.
As such, Ting said, the contractor of the project has lodged a police report today after the circulation of the fake audio and message in the social media today.
“We sincerely hope that the public will keep calm and in any case do exercise due care while driving on the road,” he said.
