Kelantan receives RM83.5 million for road maintenance

Kelantan has received an allocation of RM83.5 million from the federal government for maintenance of road infrastructure in the state, Bernama has reported.

The allocation will be used to repair damaged roads identified throughout the state, and repair works are expected to be fully completed in June, said Kelantan public works, infrastructure, water and rural development committee chairman Datuk Izani Husin.

“The allocation this time is slightly less than last year’s [allocation of] RM104.4 million. Regardless, we will use it to repair damaged roads in all the colonies (districts) as needed after Hari Raya Aidilfitri. So far, the allocation for periodic paving in the Gua Musang colony is the highest, involving 11 roads at an estimated cost of RM10.7 million,” Izani said.
