We’ve all been there before. Driving on Malaysian roads, there’ll always be a time when we accidentally drive over deceptively deep potholes, or road conditions that are nowhere near good enough for our vehicles. It’s even worse for motorcyclists, who have to endure stretches of “death traps“. For most of us, we don’t really know where to lodge a complaint – or we just don’t have the time to do so. Thankfully, the Works Ministry is looking to change that; soon, you’ll be able to lodge a complaint on poor road conditions via an app.
The app , which is currently still being mooted within the ministry, will allow Malaysians to inform the ministry on any roads or infrastructural damage in areas that fall under the ministry’s jurisdiction. The app will have a feature where users can snap photos of the damaged part of the road, making it easier for follow-up action by the ministry.

This move will be in line with the ministry’s efforts in providing the best service for Malaysians, according to Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, the Works Minister. In addition, Datuk Seri Fadillah added that the ministry will also be more engaging on its Facebook and Twitter social media pages, providing another avenue for Malaysians to get in touch.
However, there is no timeline regarding this app’s launch, nor is there any indication that this app is currently being developed.
