PKR in Favour of Labuan Bridge Proposal, Says Nurul Izzah
Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) vice-president, Nurul Izzah Anwar, says the proposed bridge connecting Labuan island and mainland Sabah is a safe, secure and efficient means of connecting the people of the duty-free island and Sabah.
PKR is in favour of the long-standing proposal to build the bridge.
Nurul Izzah, who is the MP for Permatang Pauh in Penang has said the issue of transportation in the country was always at the forefront and focus of the political leaders.
“My point is that when we are using that route (bridge), it makes so much sense to ease transportation to ensure that the locals here can frequent neighbouring areas in a safe, secure and efficient way,” she said to Bernama after attending the ‘Jelajah Reformasi 20 Tahun Bersama Rafizi Ramli' campaign.
The bridge could be considered seriously by the government of the day although its construction was subject to a study and financial allocation from the government, Nurul Izzah said.
“I will be writing to Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad (on the need to build the bridge). We have eyes and ears and, when you see what the people are facing, of course, you have to do your bit,” she said.
