Upgrading and repair works for the Federal Highway motorcycle lane – costing RM3.13 million – will be completed by December 17. This was reported to the Dewan Rakyat by deputy works minister Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin, in a The Sun Daily article.
According to Rosnah, the upgrade works involved installation of warning signs, repainting of road lines, repairs to street lights and replacing and fixing missing drain covers. She also said that proposals for further upgrade works have been forwarded under the special RM29 million 2017 budget allocation for motorcycle lane works.
Responding to a question by Senator Datuk Koh Chin Wan, Rosnah said, “following the budget allocation for next year, the Public Works Department (JKR) has discussed with all the agencies namely KL City Hall (DBKL), PLUS and SPRINT.” She added that based on plans, physical construction work for the proposed project is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2017.
