New community hall, retaining wall for villagers


KUCHING: Residents of Kampung Meriyu, Lundu will benefit from the new community hall in the village said Tanjung Datu assemblywoman Datuk Amar Jamilah Anu.

She said the project, which was implemented under the Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) has been completed.

“This is through the Sarawak Public Works Department as the implementing agency and appointed contractor with an allocation of RM150,000.

“Similarly, a retaining wall at Kampung Meriyu has also been built, with the Department of Irrigation and Drainage as the implementing agency and appointed contractor with an allocation of RM100,000,” she said when visiting the site of the newly-completed community hall on Saturday (Oct 16) in the constituency.

Accompanying her was State Implementation Monitoring Unit director Azmi Bujang.

Meanwhile, Kampung Meriyu village head Raya Pawi, who represented the villagers, thanked the Sarawak government and Tanjung Datu assemblywoman for their concern about the needs of the villagers.

He said prior to this, when organising village activities, they had to use tents. Now with the completion of the community hall, activities or ceremonies can be done more comfortably.

He added that Jamilah also approved an allocation of RM35,000 to build a road to the jetty and a sidewalk. These are now completed and can be used.

At the same time, a villager Sipik Pawi also echoed Raya’s sentiments and was happy with the development done in the village which greatly benefited the locals.
