LIMBANG: Three more development projects for Kampung Limpaki here have been identified for next year.
Agriculture, Native Land and Regional Development Assistant Minister Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Ismail said the project involved the upgrading of the Kampung Limpaki hall which would cost RM50,000; building of a concrete drain at Taman Gelagah Limpaki with an estimated cost of RM200,000; and the upgrading of the village road through the Public Infrastructure Maintenance (PIA) and Basic Infrastructure Project (PIAS) allocation amounting to RM150,000.
“All these infrastructure projects will be implemented by next year,” he said during a working visit to a project site at Kampung Limpaki on Friday (Nov 20).
On the development projects for this year, he said Kampung Limpaki has received an allocation of RM150,000 to upgrade the agriculture road, spanning one kilometre.
“This project is currently ongoing and we are sure that it will ease the farmers’ transporting process of aromatic dwarf coconuts (kelapa pandan) once the road is complete.
Dr Abdul Rahman, who is also the Bukit Kota assemblyman, added that the project to upgrade the gravel road this year has been approved and RM200,000 has been allocated by the Ministry of Rural Development.
“We want the agro food sector to be expanded in Limbang District so that local products can reach a wider market.
“This is so we can promote products such as chips, layer cakes and others to our neighbouring countries,” he said.
