Better amenities for village folk

Date:

KUCHING: The residents of Kampung Narum and Kampung Pemindahan in Marudi will soon enjoy better infrastructure and amenities in their neighbourhood.

Local Government Assistant Minister Datuk Dr Penguang Manggil said the project to build a community hall and a futsal court is underway with construction set to commence soon.

“The offer letter for the Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) to build a community hall and futsal court in Kampung Pemindahan worth RM950,000 has been presented to the Public Works Department (JKR).

“This means that the construction work will begin soon at the project site which was chosen by the residents,” he said in a Facebook post on Saturday.

The Marudi assemblyman said the project was supposed to take off in 2018 but was postponed after the chosen project site was not approved.

“The site couldn’t be approved due to issues on its land use status at Lot 222 (at Kampung Pemindahan),” he added.

Penguang said since then, the villagers and community leader have been working to get the land (Lot 222) approved for the project which they succeeded.

“The community hall and the futsal court, when completed, will benefit all from Kampung Pemindahan Marudi,” he said.

The assistant minister also revealed that a project to build a multipurpose assembly point was approved in Kampung Narum.

“I have visited the site of the project which will be under RTP for 2021 and is estimated to be worth RM200,000.

“This project will benefit the residents of Kampung Narum in conducting their community activities,” he said.
