PROJECTS to upgrade the road at Tanjung Assam to Kampung Buda and from Kampung Supa to Kampung Medang in Spaoh, Betong will be resubmitted under the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP).

Assistant Minister of Coastal Road Datuk Julaihi Narawi said the upgrading project for Jalan Tanjung Assam to Kampung Buda had been submitted in the mid-term of the 11th Malaysia Plan but unfortunately it was not approved.

“The Public Works Department (JKR) will resubmit the proposal for this project under the 12th Malaysia Plan,” he said in response to a question from Mohammad Razi Sitam (GPS-Saribas) during the Q&A session at the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) yesterday.

According to him, this particular road is still categorised as a bund road under the supervision of the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID).

“DID can register this road under the Malaysian Road Records Information System (Marris) and comply with the Marris specifications before JKR can consider taking over the supervision of the road,” he remarked.

On the proposed road from Kampung Supa to Kampung Medang, Julaihi said JKR will study the requirements of this project before it is submitted for implementation under the 12th Malaysia Plan.

He also noted that the estimated cost to upgrade the 5km stretch of Jalan Tanjung Assam to Kampung Buda is RM30 million whereas the upgrading works for the 14km road from Kampung Supa to Kampung Medang to JKR R1 standard will cost RM70 million.
