Four residents share views on Gedong

Date:

GEDONG: Gedong has transformed significantly over the years, becoming more developed and accessible, thanks to the construction of roads and bridges as well as other improved facilities.

At the earth-breaking ceremony of the road from Lubok Teranggas to Gedong held at Dewan Terbuka Gedong here on Wednesday (Nov 17), Gedong incumbent Datuk Mohd Naroden Majais recalled that back in the day, Gedong was just a remote village with residents relying on agricultural, fishing and logging activities.

At the time, only basic infrastructure and facilities were available. However, these were steadily developed and improved over the years.

New Sarawak Tribune spoke to four residents and these are their views and hopes for the constituency.

“Development in Gedong can be clearly seen, especially through the construction of roads and bridges. We are also grateful for what has been provided now. However, I hope that in the future, all development projects implemented here can be coordinated for all villages and carried out comprehensively.”

Muhammad Amirudin Mohammad Razali

Serinah Saili, 69

“There is no denying that the development in Gedong  now, especially for traders, is good. However, those of us at the Food Court need our own bathrooms. Now, we have to go to Anjung Usahawan Gedong (across from Food Court) to use the bathrooms and this also makes it difficult for customers.”

“I hope that Gedong will be equipped with a place for e-sports because the younger generation like us love video games. We do not have such facilities in this area and we hope that it will be created in the future.”

Muhammad Akmalrieeaisma Mohammad Ismail, 18

“Most of the teenagers our age in the village are really interested in sports, especially football, but the existing sports infrastructure is less than satisfactory. I hope that the facilities can be repaired in the future.”
