SIMANGGANG, May 4: The RM230,000 upgrading of fences for Methodist Church has been completed.

The project, which is located at Jalan Paya, Sri Aman came under the Rural Transformation Programme (RTP).

Simanggang Assemblyman Datuk Francis Harden Hollis who recently inspected the site said: “Construction work has been completed. The only part that is not done is the re-installation of pipes that were affected when contractors implement the fencing work.”

Francis, who is also the Assistant Minister of Community Welfare also inspected the 1.9km newly completed road Jalan Komuniti at Kpg Sebangkoi in Undop.

“Also under the RTP, a total of RM250,000 was allocated for this road. Part of it, about 800 meters, has been cemented while the remaining 1.1km has been filled with quarry stones.


“After that, I visited some individuals from Rh Bandi in Kpg Sebangkoi to discuss about the proposed house renovation under the People’s Housing Project for the hardcore poor (PPRT). This was followed by a site visit to SK Ulu Paku community hall as they have requested to build an awning,” he said in a statement.

Over at SK Batu Lintang, Francis and his team surveyed the school’s multipurpose hall over a proposal to build a connection at the front portion of the hall with shelter roof to reduce the exposure of rain and hot weather for its students and teachers.

Meanwhile, representatives from relevant implementing agencies were also invited to join the survey and inspection see check on work that has been done based on its specifications.

Continuously driven to develop Simanggang, Francis asserted that he does not want to see this area being left behind in meeting the people’s aspiration and thirst for development.

Based on the on going projects, he believed that the people can honestly assess their representatives’ performance in serving the rakyat.

“Our rakyat must continue to support the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government in the next state election because it has proven and fulfilled its promises.

“On the other hand, the opposition parties only know how to criticise without concrete plans for the people. They and certain individuals are frustrated because they are lack of patience and genuine spirit in fighting for the people under their care,” Francis added. — DayakDaily
