406 projects worth RM1.8b under 9MP implemented in Johor

JOHOR BARU: A total of 406 projects worth RM1.8billlion have been implemented under the Ninth Malaysian Plan this year. 

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman told the state assembly that 391 projects worth RM2.9bil were carried out last year. 

"We still have another 1,650 projects which are in the planning stages - that include tender awarding, designing process and preparing work specification. 

"To date 274 projects have been completed while 244 have not been started under the 9MP," he said adding that, the state government had identified a few problems that could hamper the plans including shortage of materials and price war. 

To avoid the problems, Abdul Ghani told Ayub Jamil (BN-Rengit), that copper and steel materials have been classified as controlled items and the government would monitor its price in order to avoid any shortage of materials. 

"The state works department has been told to gather figures on materials needed for the projects and forward it to the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs office to be monitored," said Ghani.
