SERIAN: Villagers in Kampung Rayang and Kampung Rituh Labuan here will soon have better accessibility once works to upgrade roads to the villages are completed by March this year.

Assistant Minister of Agriculture, Native Land and Regional Development Datuk Roland Sagah Wee Inn said the upgrading works costing over RM382,000 began last December and were progressing smoothly.

“Once completed, the villagers will enjoy smoother ride to their homes,” he said at the handing over of the projects held at Kampung Rituh Labuan multi-purpose hall today (Jan 13).

The Tarat assemblyman thanked the GPS government for allocating funds to develop infrastructures in Serian district especially villages in the area.

He reminded the people to be patient as it takes time for development projects to be approved and implemented.

“In order to have better infrastructure, it takes time to complete, whether it is big or small projects, because we have to follow procedures and be transparent.”

He reminded the villagers to work with the government and the district office on matters such as welfare, electricity and water supply issues.

The assistant minister also advised them to exercise extra precautions and practise the standard operating procedures (SOPs) in order to contain the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.

“Please wear mask, wash hands with soap or sanitisers and do not shake hands with each other for the moment. Go out only if absolutely necessary,” he said.
