JOHOR BARU: The RM30mil allocation for the Department of Environment (DOE) and Chemistry Department in Budget 2020 is a boost for the Johor Sustainability Policy, said state executive council member Tan Chen Choon.

Tan, who is local government, urban wellbeing and environment committee chairman said this would indirectly strengthen the role of DOE in tackling pollution woes in Johor following the state’s rapid development.

“It will enhance enforcement, preservation and conservation efforts by DOE, ” he said when commenting on Budget 2020.

Johor public works, transport and infrastructure committee chairman Mohd Solihan Badri said he hoped the Federal Government’s RM85mil allocation to improve traffic flow at the Causeway would make it more systematic and efficient.

He hoped the Causeway would have better facilities and enforcement.

“This will help overcome traffic congestion at the Causeway, ” he said. — Bernama
