KUCHING, June 5: Puspakom (Computerised Vehicle Inspection Centre) will extend its operating hours to every Saturday, from 9 am to 4 pm for the whole month of June, effective tomorrow.

Sarawak Minister of Transport Datuk Lee Kim Shin said this move was done to address the problem of long queues formed by vehicles waiting for inspections.

“There are complaints that the queues started as early as 4.30 am. Customers with prior appointments are subjected to the same lane as those who walk in.

“Therefore, I have suggested for Puspakom to open up another lane to cater specifically for those who have made prior  appointments,” he said.

He announced this after making a working visit to personally assess the situation at Puspakom Kuching, today.

At the same time, Lee also urged the public to book their appointments through the company’s official website or the MyPUSPAKOM application so that they need not have to go too early to the centre. -DayakDaily.
