Plans drawn up to solve Lutong flooding

Date:

MIRI: Remedial measures will soon be taken to overcome the problem of flooding along Jalan Pantai in Lutong every time the high tide coincides with heavy rain.

Dredging work will be carried out on the roadside drain by the Miri City Council while the Drainage and Irrigation Department undertakes a similar effort at the mouth of Sungai Lutong Kecil.

DID hopes to complete the work this year and in the meantime also plans to build a gabion along the coastline.

Over the long term the council also hopes to plug the problem by raising the road level at Jalan Pantai with work scheduled to commence next month.

Steps to alleviate the problem which has been troubling road users and the nearby Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Lutong were agreed upon following a visit by officials, led by Mayor Adam Yii, to assess the extent of damages caused by the latest flooding there.
