BELAGA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced recently that the government would allocate RM62mil to construct a new road linking Belaga and Bakun.

The construction of the 37km road will begin next month and will benefit 15,000 villagers.

“With this road, the people here will feel the difference,” he said when opening a RM46mil clinic in Belaga. It was Najib’s first visit to the town.

The road was one of the projects in the wish list of the Belaga people. Other projects approved were the RM2.3mil bridge over Sungai Linau, a kindergarten in Lusong Laku, upgrades to SMK Belaga and other old schools, as well as supply of clean water to Belaga town and nearby longhouses totaling up to RM35mil. These projects are scheduled to be completed by October next year.

Najib said the government would continue to assist the rural communities under the Rural Basic Infrastruc­ture (RBI) NKRA of the GTP.
