MALAYSIAN Nature Society (MNS) is worried about the effects from a road upgrading project cutting through the mangrove forest in Sepang.

According to the staff at MNS’ Sepang Environmental Interpretive Centre, the 10km-long Jalan Besar Salak (B48) will be upgraded in stages starting from the junction at Simpang Tiga Jenderam up to Pekan Sepang Lama.
