KUCHING, Jan 30: The Sarawak government will develop a new housing area between Segedup and Sungai Maong, said Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.
He said the Land and Survey Department has planned for a housing scheme project starting with 600 units in the area.
“When the project’s first phase is complete, we will continue with the next phase.
“Therefore, we hope that the completion of the proposed road from Jalan Sungai Maong to Segedup can be expedited and this will open up the new area,” he said.
He said this when speaking at the 12th Sarawak Election Thanksgiving and Appreciation Ceremony for N8 Satok constituency held at Pullman Hotel in Kuching last night.
Abang Johari, who is the former Satok assemblyman, said the constituency will continue to develop under the leadership of his successor Dato Ibrahim Baki.
Among other development projects in Satok are the ongoing construction of Sungai Bintangor Bridge, renovation at Brooke Dockyard, a facelift for the riverfront stretch from Kuching Waterfront all the way up to Kampung No 5 at Jalan Datuk Ajibah Abol and a waterfront stretching from Kampung Sungai Bedil to Kampung Lintang and Kampung Tanjung to Kampung Tupong Tengah.
At the same time, Ibrahim assured that the constituency will not be left behind as Sarawak moves forward to achieve the status of a developed State in Malaysia by 2030.
He disclosed that he already had started a discussion with Senior Works Minister-cum-Petra Jaya MP Dato Sri Fadillah Yusof on development plans for Satok.
He also said his predecessor Abang Johari has done a tremendous job in developing Satok not only in terms of infrastructure but also ensuring peace and unity within the community. ― DayakDaily
