Slew of infrastructure projects in Tamin

Date:

KUCHING: A slew of infrastructure projects are underway in the rural constituency of Tamin, said its assemblyman Christopher Gira Sambang.

He said a total of 16 longhouses in the areas of Sekuau, Ulu Oya, Ulu Pakoh, Bunau and Bekikik will soon have 24-hour electricity supply.

“We have completed the ground-breaking ceremony of the Rural Electrification Scheme (RES) project at Rh Udi Sg Segurin, Ulu Pakoh. This project costs RM12.4 million and is expected to be completed by March 2021,” he said.

Gira said besides that, a project under the rural transformation programme (RTP) for year 2021 to build a road at Rh Ujang@Rh Bunya Sg Sepasir, Pakoh has been approved.

“Under RTP 2021, we will build a road leading to the longhouse and I also suggested to the Utilities Ministry that the longhouse be involved in the RES project,” he said in a Facebook post on Sunday (Oct 11).

Gira, who visited the two sites in Pakoh last Saturday (Oct 10), also took the time to attend a community gathering programme at Rh Tan Skim, Sekuau.

“I have approved a total of RM50,000 in minor rural project (MRP) funds to build a car park as well as another RM5,000 to the Women Bureau of the longhouse’s village safety and development committee (JKKK),” he said.

Later, during a visit to a recent landslide site at Rh Ejan@Rh Juli Sekim, Sekuau, Gira urged the Public Works Department (JKR) to conduct an investigation to prevent such incident from happening in the future.

“In the meantime, I urged the people to install a canvas to mitigate further erosion,” he said.
