Pasir Gudang highway upgrade to start this year


Asman Shah hopes road users will be patient throughout the Pasir Gudang Highway upgrading project.

ROAD users are advised to use the Johor Baru East Coast Highway as a alternative route to the city or Pasir Gudang to avoid congestion along the Pasir Gudang Highway.

Pasir Gudang mayor Datuk Asman Shah Abd Rahman said this was due to the upgrading of the Pasir Gudang Highway, which is expected to start by year end.

“We are currently selecting contractors for the project after the Work Ministry approved an allocation of RM155mil for the highway’s expansion from the current four lanes to six lanes.

“The work will involve a 5km stretch from the Bandar Seri Alam intersection to Pasir Gudang Port,” he said after chairing Pasir Gudang City Council’s full board meeting at Menara Aqabah, Pasir Gudang.

The project will standardise the route from Taman Perling to Pasir Gudang, making it three lanes on both directions.

“Works are expected to be completed within three years.

“We hope road users will drive safely and be patient throughout the project,” he added.

In an unrelated matter, Asman Shah said the World Cities Summit 2022 had been a great platform for all local councils in Johor to gain awareness of the Greater Johor Baru agenda.

The event had been held from July 31 to Aug 3 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. — By REMAR NORDIN
