LIMBANG, Nov 16: More than 3,500 villagers from 18 villages and two schools here will be enjoying clean treated water once the new water supply pipelines from Bawang Ubor to Pangkalan Jawa junction to Rh Jubang junction is extended.

A simple launching ceremony for the project was held today and officiated by Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan.

In his brief speech, Awang Tengah said the project is one of the 160 projects to be implemented by Northern Region Development Agency (NRDA) in Limbang and Lawas region which has been allocated with RM1.5 billion by the Sarawak government.

“Once the extension work is done, the local community here will get to enjoy the clean treated water from Berawan water treatment plant,” he said in a statement today.

Apart from these projects, Awang Tengah mentioned that there were also few mega projects to be implemented in the northern region such as the 87km’s Northern Coastal Highway which is expected to start construction in the second quarter of next year.

He added that the Sarawak government is actively implementing infrastructure projects to lay the foundation for economic growth which will eventually benefit the people.

Present were Deputy Minister of Transport Malaysia Datuk Hasbi Habibollah, Batu Danau assemblyman Paulus Palu Gumbang and Regional Corridor Development Authority (Recoda) chief executive officer (CEO) Datu Ismawi Ismuni. — DayakDaily
