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.

Places like that bridge scare me, if I happen to be out at night, alone. I'd rather walk a bit more, to the next street light, on the ground.

Makes a dramatic photo, though.

You know how I feel about bridges. They should never be neglected afterall they connect us. Beautifully captured decay. Maybe this image will spark a reaction.

i hope that thru this post you'll be able to get the officials attention to improve it.

here though you also see similar to that.

A very nice shot with this perspective.

I guess all government depts work the same way; they just simply set their priorities they way we don't undestand!
