Lingga rep calls for improved infrastructure facilities

Date:

BY GABRIEL LIHAN & JASMINE BADUN

Better infrastructures should be built in Lingga for the benefit and convenience of residents there.

Dayang Noorazah Awang Sohor (GPS-Lingga) said proper drainage systems, in particular, were needed in Lingga as it was prone to floods.

“Moreover, I propose a maintenance wall and flood mitigation project in the coastal areas of Lingga, Meludam and Triso which should be built under the 13th Malaysia Plan (13MP).

“For many years, Meludam and Triso residents have not had the services of a post office to pay their bills. Small and medium entrepreneurs (SME) and housewives from single income families depend on these services’’ she said.

She said residents found it difficult to travel to Pusa to manage their mailing and courier services.

The assemblywoman also called for a numbering system for house lots in Meludam and Triso, saying that 90 per cent of the lots houses did not have any numbering.

On the development of Lingga, she proposed that rural transformative centres be considered for Lingga, Meludam and Triso districts.

“I hope all these proposals will be considered under 13MP or the state government’s development plan, she said.
