KOTA KINABALU: An alternative road may be built to overcome the landslip problems along the Tamparuli-Ranau road, Deputy Works Minister Datuk Mohd Zin Mohamed said. 

He said that the possibility of a new road was being considered in the long-term planning although they had to look into various factors including the high cost involved in building another road to Ranau. 

Landslips along the present road were due to unstable earth conditions, he told reporters here yesterday. 

Mohd Zin said that it was still necessary to maintain the present road as it played a vital role in the socio-economic development of the rural people in the area. 

On the June 24 landslip at the 82nd kilometre of the Tamparuli-Ranau road, he said he would be visiting the site today and works were under way to clear the debris.
