Serian ILP at 12.06 per cent completion

Date:

KUALA LUMPUR: Construction work on the proposed Serian Industrial Training Institute (ILP) in Sarawak resumed on May 12 this year and the project has now reached 12.06 per cent of completion, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.

Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri M Saravanan said the project, located on a 22.9-hectare site, had fallen behind schedule by 19.6 per cent following the imposition of the movement control order (MCO) on March 18.

“There were power poles obstructing construction activities in the middle of the site which needed to be moved, and the building work order issued to the contractor following the change in job scope has contributed to the delay.

“The ministry has directed the contractor to revise the work programme for the project rehabilitation plan. The contractor has applied for an extension of time (EOT) because of related problems and the ministry is studying the matter,” he added.

He was replying to a question from Datuk Seri Richard Riot Jaem (GPS-Serian) on the progress of the Serian ILP project.

The project started on April 26, 2018 and is scheduled for completion on Dec 14 next year.

When completed, the Serian ILP will have five blocks of buildings for administration offices, hostels, quarters and sports activities, and can accommodate about 600 students at any one time. – Bernama
