State Government Will Continue High-Impact Infrastructure Projects

The State government will continue with the development of high-impact infrastructure projects to ensure the people's well-being and to provide a good quality of life.


Minister of Infrastructure Development Datuk Peter Anthony told the State Assembly that amid speculations of projects, introduced by the previous administration will be stopped, the new government will continue with the projects of road widening, increasing water supply capacity, developing the maritime and terrestrial infrastructure, which goes in line with the needs of the State.

"The State government has set aside RM260 million in 2018 to implement the various infrastructure projects under my ministry. The allocation was split to Public Works Department (RM82.3 million), Water Department (Rm160.5 million), Ports and Harbours (RM6.2 million) and Sabah State Railways (RM11.03 million)" he said.

Anthony told the State Assembly that the funds for the Public Works Department will be for road projects in Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Tawau and several other smaller townships to rehabilitate the roads leading to tourist attractions, agriculture and industrial land.

He also said that the department will focus on upgrading the existing railway track and maintenance of the rail services between Kota Kinabalu and Tenom.

"The projects are part of the State's strategic plan to make rail an alternative form of transport for the public's usage.”
