The Crossing Bridge
This is the pedestrian crossing bridge from where I took the photos of Jalan Merdeka (Merdeka Street) that I posted in the previous two posts.
In contrast to the street below, which looks clean and well-maintained, this pedestrian crossing bridge looks dirty and in disrepair. Some of its tiles have come off. Considering its location, which is just next to the city hall, I don't understand why it has been left dirty and in disrepair like this. I can only guess that the maintenance of this facility is not a priority because not many people use it. As I said in one of my previous posts, a lot of peole here prefer to jaywalk than using the pedestrian crossing bridge like this.
