GREEN TRANSPORT: Roadblocks to cycling culture
These issues are all too familiar to environmentalist Gurmit Singh, who had raised similar concerns in the 1970s, when he supported the use of the bike to combat traffic problems. Gurmit was Malaysia’s first bicycle advocate.
Centre for Environment, Technology and Development, Malaysia executive director Anthony Tan concurs.
“People must view the bicycle as a viable mode of transportation, instead of a poor man‘s choice or for use in the villages.
“And our ministers, exco members and mayors should lead by example by riding to work,“ he adds.
Group: Budget failed to address public transportation woes
Centre for Environment, Technology & Development Malaysia (Cetdem) executive director Anthony Tan said the Government should ensure all upcoming housing development plans incorporated environmentally-friendly designs.
