All sys­tems go for Subang range

New Straits Times - - Sport - Khairy S Iswan

DE­SPITE ear­lier fears, the Subang Shoot­ing Range is now ready to host the Kuala Lumpur Sea Games.

Sports min­is­ter Khairy Ja­malud­din, who vis­ited the range yes­ter­day, said he was sat­is­fied with the progress made at the venue.

"We have chan­neled funds through the sports min­istry to do some mi­nor up­grad­ing here and if you take a look around you will see the im­prove­ments made," said Khairy.

"They have built a new roof here as well as a few other fa­cil­i­ties. At the mo­ment this venue is 90 per cent ready, all that is left to do is the ban­ners and brand­ing etc."

The re­mote lo­ca­tion of the shoot­ing range, which is also close to sev­eral con­struc­tion sites, is feared to have is­sues with aedes mos­quito.

"There is a risk of be­ing ex­posed to the aedes mos­quito here due to the con­di­tion of the sur­round­ing ar­eas.

"How­ever, we have con­ducted sev­eral fog­ging ex­er­cises and will con­tinue to do so reg­u­larly to deal with the prob­lem."
