More water supply for Kedup soon


SERIAN: Villagers along Jalan Mongkos as well as Jalan Mentung Merau here will be able to enjoy more consistent water supply by next year.

Kedup assemblyman Martin Ben said the water supply project was supposed to be completed this year but was delayed due to Covid-19.

“Should the conditions warrant, the water supply project should be fully completed by next year,” he said.

He was speaking to New Sarawak Tribune after officiating at the handover of the Yayasan Sarawak’s (Sarawak Foundation) school uniform voucher for Kedup constituency at Roxy Hotel here on Friday (Oct 22).

The Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Kedup Branch chairman added that as for the road infrastructure in his constituency, all roads are motorable.

“For the tar-sealed road, we have achieved at least 98 percent. This means that all 68 villages in Kedup are reachable,” he said.

As for the electricity supply in Kedup constituency, he said that all the villages there are already connected with 24-hour electricity supply.

“For Internet connectivity, it will be carried out through the government’s programme to strengthen the digital network such as National Digital Network Plan (Jendela) and other initiatives by Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA).

“We hope that the Internet connectivity initiatives can be sped up, especially for the schools,” he said.

He said good Internet connectivity was important for both the students and teachers in their learning and teaching process.

“Overall, for my constituency, I am thankful to the government, including the past leaders, who have continuously developed Kedup.”
