KUCHING: Upon its completion, the proposed Jalan Sungai Maong to Segedup would not only provide a better driving experience for commuters, but would also bring about immediate and long-term socio-economic benefits and overall development to the community within the areas.

Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr James Masing pointed this out at the proposed Jalan Sungai Maong to Segedup groundbreaking ceremony at Kampung Segedup, Batu Kawah here, last Tuesday.

Moreover, he said the new road would give people staying in that area a choice or alternative route to travel as currently the only route that people from Sedegup have to go to Kuching city is by using Jalan Batu Kawah.

Residents of Kampung Segedup said the 3.6km single carriageway connecting Kampung Sungai Maong to Segedup would improve communication and the local economy.
