Kota Marudu to have double carriage way

KOTA MARUDU, Dec 16, 2016: Road congestion will soon be over, thanks to the proposed construction of the dual carriageway here beginning next year.

Member of Parliament here Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili, in giving the assurance today after inspecting the affected stretches, said works are currently on-going to shift the electricity and telephone lines to make way for the project.
 
“The 3-kilometre dual carriageway project is divided into two phases. 
 
"We started the first phase of shifting the drainage along the stretch six months ago, and has recently completed. We expect to begin the second phase next year,” the Energy, Green Technology and Water Minister added.
 
He said the RM30 million worth project is expected to ease traffic flow, which has long troubled motorists here due to the fast pace of economic  development taking place in the district.
 
The road construction is expected to be completed by end of next year, if all land matters are sorted out according to schedule.
