Selangor preps RM50 mln to upgrade roads, fix potholes

By Siti Rohaizah Zainal

SHAH ALAM, April 1 — The state government has allocated RM50 million to rectify roads with potholes, with the work expected to start at the end of next month.

State executive councillor for infrastructure Izham Hashim said they are now waiting for the list of damaged or otherwise problematic roads from the local authorities.

“Once we have the list of roads in hand, we will finalise it by determining which require immediate attention. The final process for the roads that require upgrade works should be around the middle of April, with the paving work to commence after Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

“Overall, we are allocating RM50 million to pave potholes and repair roads with issues all across Selangor, rather than building new roads,” he told SelangorKini yesterday.

Through the 2023 Selangor Budget, the state government has allocated a total of RM145 million for the improvement of the road network system next year, for the comfort and convenience of its users.

Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said RM40.98 million will be set aside for the Public Works Department to carry out the construction of new roads in several localities.
