MIRI: State Transport Minister Datuk Lee Kim Shin visited several road upgrading projects at Jalan Desa Senadin and Jalan Promin which have been completed recently.

The resurfacing of the road project is part of the Malaysian Road Record Information System (Marris) 2021 programme for the Miri City Council (MCC).

During the visit, Lee said Jalan Maigold is one of the main access roads to Desa Senadin in the form of a dual carriageway, as such the width should be widened.
