SIBU, Feb 22: The RM25.8 million Darul Husna Mosque and two road projects costing RM9 million in Sibu Jaya are progressing well and expected to complete on schedule.

Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian said the mosque and the two roads leading to Sibu Jaya are expected to be ready next year.

“These three projects, on open tender basis, will greatly benefit the people in Sibu Jaya,” he told a press conference after a site visit to Rumah Spectra Permata (RSP) housing project in Kemuyang here today.
