KUCHING: The roads in the Tinjar area of the Marudi constituency will be upgraded under the recently approved people-centric project by the state government.

Local Government Assistant Minister Datuk Dr Penguang Manggil said the approval was informed by the State’s Economic Planning Unit (EPU) during a recent meeting.

“The people-centric project approved this time focuses on road upgrading works in the Tinjar area, including the construction of a small bridge across Sungai Tinjar.

“This is the next phase in the transformation plan that I have planned for the Marudi constituency,” he said in a Facebook post on Friday.

Penguang earlier attended a meeting with the State EPU director Dr Muhammad Abdullah Zaidel along with representatives of the State Financial Secretary’s (SFS) office, the State Ministry of Infrastructure and Ports Development (MIPD) and the Public Works Department (JKR).

This came after his meeting with Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg recently.

“I am grateful to have been officially informed of the approval of the new people-centric project for the Marudi constituency.

“I applied for this project to the chief minister last February and it is expected to be implemented soon,” he said.

At the same time, during his meeting with EPU and state agencies, Penguang had discussed issues pertaining to past people-centric projects implemented in the constituency.

“Once again, I would like to express my deepest appreciation and thanks to Abang Johari and the Sarawak government.

“I would also like to thank the officers of EPU, SFS, MIPD, and JKR who have worked hard in processing our applications from Marudi,” he pointed out.
