We understand the road project linking Tanjung Batu (Pantai Temasya) to Tanjung Kidurong likely to be delayed due to some cost cutting measure.
The road project initially allocated more than RM3 million under the 9 Malaysia Plan (9MP) – however only get actual funding of slightly above half a million.
“If Bintulu Development Authority (BDA) couldn’t come out with the balance funding (estimated to be nearly 2.5 million) the project unlikely to be completed this year,” a reliable source told Bintulu.Org on Monday.
The source said BDA would seek the help of Ministry of Rural Development to rescue the project.
However, BDA officer when contacted today refuse to comment.
