KUCHING: Despite the ongoing conditional movement control order (CMCO), three Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) projects were able to be completed in the Tanjung Datu constituency.
Its assemblywoman Datuk Amar Jamilah Anu said in view of Covid-19, adherence to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) in terms of construction was crucial.
“This is because while Tanjung Datu is considered a green zone, it is important that infrastructure development is continued for the comfort of constituents,” she said on Wednesday (Nov 25).
Jamilah said while there were criticisms over the delay of the RTP projects, she urged the local folk to remain patient and understand the situation on the ground.
Among the completed projects is the drainage system upgrade in Kampung Seketi Melayu Lundu implemented by the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) Kuching-Samarahan with the cost of RM70,000.
Besides that, the RM200,000 Kampung Tanah Hitam Sematan Lundu mosque upgrading project was also completed under the implementing agency, namely Lundu District Council (MDL) and a contractor.
The third project was the trader market site in Lundu Town costing RM150,000 and was implemented by MDL assisted by one contractor company.
