Road upgrading for Kampung Sebayang in Tanjung Manis

Date:

KUCHING: The current road linking longhouses Rumah (Rh) Bangga to Rh Saung and Rh Richard at Kampung Sebayang, Tanjung Manis will be upgraded.

Sarawak Assistant Urban Development and Natural Resources Minister Datuk Len Talif Salleh says the project will be implemented under the Rural Transformation Programme (RTP).

“This will be another people-centric project in the Sebayang area. This will be implemented in the near future.

“This morning, the documents were handed over by the Mukah Department of Drainage and Irrigation (DID) to the contractor.

“The handover was witnessed by Tanjung Manis district officer Ismail Kasah along with longhouse heads Tr Saung, Tr Baki and Tr Bangga,” he said in a Facebook post on Thursday (July 8).

The Kuala Rajang assemblyman said the cost of the project was about RM300,000 and would use a portion of the RM5mil allocation given by the Sarawak government to elected representatives.

Earlier this year, Len said Kampung Sebayang also received two RTP projects to widen the 700m Tusok/Sebayang road and build a jetty at Rh Bangga, Tusok.

The two projects cost about RM580,000 and RM100,000 respectively and were implemented at the time.
