The Borneo Post - - HOME -

A SUM of RM3 mil­lion each has been ap­proved for the de­sign works on Sun­gai Men­uan and Sun­gai Ibau roads.

Ac­cord­ing to As­sis­tant Min­is­ter of Coastal Road Datuk Ju­laihi Narawi, both projects have been sub­mit­ted to the state gov­ern­ment for the mid-term re­view un­der the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP).

Ju­laihi, who is Se­buyau as­sem­bly­man, stated this in his re­ply to Jef­fer­son Jamit Unyat ( BN-Bukit Go­ram) who asked about the sta­tus of the projects.

In re­sponse to sup­ple­men­tary ques­tions, Ju­laihi said the es­ti­mated cost for the 9km R3- Grade Sun­gai Men­uan Road was RM65 mil­lion, while that of the 10km Sun­gai Ibau Road – also R3- Grade – was RM75 mil­lion.

“Hope­fully, both road projects could be im­ple­mented in the near fu­ture,” he told the au­gust House yes­ter­day.

Ju­laihi also said the gov­ern­ment is tak­ing a se­ri­ous view on safety and other is­sues in­volv­ing the com­mu­ni­ties af­fected by the Pan Bor­neo High­way pro­ject along the Se­rian- Pantu Junc­tion.

He re­sponded to a ques­tion raised by John Ilus ( BN-Bukit Se­muja), who asked whether a con­trac­tor for Pan Bor­neo High­way pro­ject works along this sec­tion had been tak­ing safety mea­sures, as far as the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties di­rectly af­fected by the pro­ject were con­cerned.
