Kelantan Receives RM83.5 Million for Road Infrastructure Maintenance

On April 2, the Federal government allocated RM83.5 million to Kelantan for road infrastructure maintenance works. Datuk Dr. Izani Husin, the chairman of Kelantan Public Works, Infrastructure, Water, and Rural Development committee, announced that the allocation would be utilised to repair damaged roads identified throughout the state, with the project expected to be completed by June.

According to Bernama,  Dr. Izani mentioned that although the allocation was slightly lower than last year’s RM104.4 million, it would still be effectively utilised to repair damaged roads across all districts following Aidilfitri. The allocation would particularly focus on periodic paving in the Gua Musang district, with an estimated cost of about RM10.7 million covering 11 roads.

Out of the total allocation, RM76.9 million was earmarked for maintenance under the concession company RoadCare (M) San Bhd, while RM6.5 million would be utilised by the district engineer’s office. RoadCare’s allocation would cover various maintenance aspects such as periodic pavement maintenance, routine maintenance, non-pavement periodic maintenance, minor bridge repairs, and emergency work.

Additionally, RM3.65 million was allocated for modifying accident-prone areas in Pasir Mas, Tanah Merah, and Kuala Krai districts, and RM0.75 million would be used for pedestrian crossings with traffic lights in Kota Bharu, Bachok, and Pasir Puteh.
