Federal roads to receive RM1.8 billion maintenance funds in 2022; RM150 million for Pahang, Johor, N9

A total of RM1.8 billion has been allocated for the maintenance of federal roads throughout Malaysia for 2022, said senior works minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof. Of this amount, RM150 million was for maintenance works for the states of Pahang, Johor and Negeri Sembilan, Bernama reported the minister as saying.

“Maintenance works in Pahang involve an expenditure of RM66.08 million, Johor with RM60.9 million and Negeri Sembilan with RM23.63 million. These maintenance works are important to keep those roads in good condition,” Fadillah told reporters.

Proposals for road upgrading works on the federal road FT050 from Ayer Hitam to Kluang in Section 33.8 until the Kluang Stadium junction in Section 49.1 will be submitted to the federal authorities next year, Fadillah said.

The Phase 3B project was aimed at reducing fatal accidents throughout the alignment, and has an estimated value of RM385.3 million under the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP); this is a continuation of the Phase 3A project worth RM219 million that is under construction, and is expected to be complete in October 2024, the senior works minister added.

“This location has recorded the highest rate of accidents in Malaysia due to the absence of road shoulders, medians and U-turns, with 52 accidents reported from 2020 to June 2022,” Fadillah said, adding that the federal road FT050 is the main toll-free route connecting Batu Pahat, Kluang and Mersing districts and will involve construction works for road shoulders, medians, U-turns and related works.

Meanwhile, a further allocation of RM600,000 has been approved for the upgrading of street lights along the federal road FT050 for the safety of road users, Fadillah added.

  • And yet our richest state Selangor has amongst the poorest roads despite the millions thrown into this

    Selangor PH has a lot to answer the rakyat, else this will be their undersea tunnel scandal.

      If you are talking about state road in selangor, yeah you can blame the state for not taking care the roads accordingly. If you say about federal road, fund comes from federal. If you talk about municipal road, it falls under jurisdiction of the local authorities. If talk about jalan kampung, then sometimes it’s under the purview of Rural Development Ministry. Some estate road belongs to estate owners like kelapa sawit area road. So different owners different jurisdictions.

      • Local authorities, municipal, and local kampung roads belong under purview of that state so it still goes back to the more than a decade incompetency of Selangor PH. Under BN it was the shining jewel state. Now it has tarnished so badly even Sarawak overtook its preeminence as a model state for others to follow. The longer it stays under PH it will sooner that other states even Kelantan might overtake it too.

      Thai national roads are more meant for tank parades during national day rather than any practical use. When our king convoys on the road, which is quite often, every other plebs have to make way and clear the road for his car. Our infra is all show but few practical use by siamese.

        Thai’s National Road.
        Even at Southern Thai border, federal route is stark contrast from Thai’s national roads.

        Witnessing Thai built a layer of BRC+Concrete and top layer with tar. Making it smooth and durable.

        “Our infra is all show but few practical use by siamese” – not able to get the meaning

          Do you know how expensive the tolls are for these beautiful thai routes. When normalised comparing to income, is f&&king expensive for the average thai citizen unlike our NS Highway.
