SHAH ALAM, NOV 7: The State Government remains committed to ensure that all federal and state roads are well maintained for the safety of road users.
Infrastructure, Public Amenities, Agricultural Modernisation and Agro-Based Industries Exco Zaidy Abdul Talib said the maintenance of federal and state roads is by long term contract basis that includes routine maintenance, pavement scale and non-pavement scale.

The Malaysian JKR headquarters also constantly updates the road building and maintenance specifications done by their expert groups,” he said.
