KUCHING, April 20: Tan Sri Dr James Masing has pledged that his ministry will find ways to link all parts of Sarawak with better road connectivity.
This is part of the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS)-led state government’s promise to the people, said the Infrastructure Development and Transportation Minister.
“My ministry will pursue this vigorously and the community must continue to support GPS YBs (elected representatives).
“GPS will not break our promises nor will we do a ‘U-turn’ in the manner of Pakatan Harapan government. What we promise, we will keep,” Masing said at the earth-breaking ceremony of the tar-sealing of the 18km Pasai Siong Road project at Rumah Layang, Tamin, in Sibu today.
The Deputy Chief Minister added that village roads network in Sarawak have spanned some 7,000km.
“Village roads are critical in developing rural areas and the GPS government will continue to better village road infrastructure in the years ahead,” he continued.
Masing also called on Works Minister Baru Bian to do his part in building more roads for Sarawak, especially in the rural areas.
