SPOAH, April 9: The much-anticipated RM108 million Bebuling STOLport (short take-off and landing airport) which is expected to begin construction soon will be completed in 30 months.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg will handover the project construction agreement document to its successful tender bidder, the D.A.L Keluarga Realty Cara Raya JV Sdn Bhd here tomorrow.

Abang Jo will be visiting Spaoh as part of his ‘Janji Ditepati’ visit programme.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Uggah said in a statement today that the RM108.1 million airport is expected to take 30 months to complete.

“At the same function, he will handover the same document to another company, the Bario Development Corporation Sdn Bhd for the construction of the new Sungai Paku bridge at Tanjung Sebekut Road,” Uggah told the media after performing the ground breaking ceremony for the Debak Sports Complex here today.

Uggah who is also Bukit Saban Assemblyman, said the iconic RM26.75 million bridge is scheduled to be ready in 30 months time as well.

Earlier, when speaking at the ground breaking ceremony for the Debak Sports Complex, he said all these projects proved that “Abang Jo does not merely announces approval of projects but is very committed to see that they are implemented.”

“His GPS government since four years ago has been focussing on implementing projects in rural areas.

“He wants to help rural folks improve their living standard. The next focus of the government is in helping rural folks generate good income from their land through modern farming.”

Uggah added the Sarawak government had approved a sum of RM60 million to help oil palm and pepper farmers where the aid which comes in the form of fertiliser subsidies would be delivered this year.

Meanwhile, a sum of RM20 million too had been set aside for fishermen (including those offshore) for the purchase of fishing equipment. — DayakDaily
