RM45 juta naik taraf Jalan Sultan Tengah


KUCHING 15 Dis. - Kerajaan memperuntukkan RM45 juta bagi menaik taraf Jalan Sultan Tengah di sini kepada empat lorong tidak lama lagi.

Menteri Perumahan dan Pembangunan Bandar, Datuk Seri Abang Johari Tun Openg berkata, pelebaran jalan sepanjang 3.4 kilometer itu juga akan membabitkan pembinaan beberapa buah lampu isyarat.

Menurutnya, pelaksanaan projek itu dijangka siap sepenuhnya menjelang Ogos 2010 dan terdapat rancangan untuk melanjutkan kerja pelebaran jalan tersebut sehingga ke Santubong dalam Rancangan Malaysia Kesepuluh (RMK10).

''Kita menjangkakan sekiranya kerja naik taraf jalan itu siap, ia akan menyelesaikan masalah kesesakan lalu lintas di kawasan Semariang terutamanya di Bandar Baru Semariang dan Taman Sukma," katanya di sini semalam.

Sultan Tengah Road is from Samariang until Kampung Budaya, Sarawak - I think so based on the map above. It's a good news that the government are going to upgrade the road. The existing 2-way road can be very congested especially at morning and afternoon time when people going and back from work. This is a great move from the government but I'm a bit skeptical when they said that the project are going to complete on August 2010.  I did saw few works have been done such as roads in front of the schools, pipeline works along the road and survey works. Today already March, 9, they have 6 months to go - can they complete on time? I really hope so. Otherwise, whomever gave the information to YB Datuk Seri Abang Johari have to remedy the data. We don't want people to think that our beloved YB giving us a false hope.
