12th August, 2020

By NAZRINI BADARUN

TAWAU: The Public Works Department (JKR) here assured traders at KM 1 Jalan Kuhara upgrading works undertaken on drainage to resolve flood problem, will not affect their business operations.

JKR Divisional Engineer, Mohd Hardy Laidin allayed the concerns of the 20 traders when he briefed them on the RM 1.4 million project to upgrade the 450 metre long drain during Tuesday’s meeting at the Tawau JKR Headquarters.

“Traders need not worry as the project has been well planned and this includes preparing an alternative entrance for vehicles to the business premises in the area,” he added.

Mohd Hardy said all traders understood the upgrading plan prepared by JKR and reached a unanimous agreement on the issue, adding that, the work which was supposed to have commenced last month, would be implemented soon following this meeting.

The area is constantly hit by flood after heavy rain and the upgrading work on the drainage is to address the problem. Also present at the meeting was incumbent Sri Tanjung Assemblyman, Datuk Jimmy Wong.
