SIBU: The Sarawak government is committed to redeveloping the Bukit Assek area to improve the quality of life, health and safety of the locals.

Abang Johari arrives for the briefing in Sibu.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg manifested this commitment when he attended the Bukit Assek redevelopment briefing here on Saturday (Jan 22).

The briefing which took place from 10.30am to 1pm was delivered by the Land Custody and Development Authority (LCDA) general manager Monaliza Zaidel.

The redevelopment of Bukit Assek will include upgrading the existing infrastructures.

The briefing was also attended by Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian; Assistant Minister of Education, Innovation and Talent Development Dr Annuar Rapaee; Assistant Minister of Public Health, Housing and Local Government Michael Tiang Ming Tee; and Deputy State Secretary (Socio-Economic Transformation) Datuk Seri Mohamad Abu Bakar Marzuki.

On November 8 last year, Abang Johari said the state government would implement the redevelopment of Bukit Assek area in Sibu for the benefit of its residents.

The Bukit Assek redevelopment plan is not only focused on creating more residences but also the construction of a commercial centre as it is adjacent to the central business district (CBD).

In addition, the plan also focuses on the construction of wider roads and better infrastructure to improve traffic flow in the city as well as improve the sewerage system to prevent flash floods.

In the recent 12th state election, Gabungan Parti Sarawak’s (GPS) Chieng Jin Ek managed to grab the Bukit Assek seat from Irene Chang (DAP) with a total of 4,684 votes winning by a majority of 874 votes.
