TAPAH: The Public Works Department (JKR) has been instructed to identify the number of projects for the police that had yet to be completed and to submit the list to the Works Ministry within two weeks. 

The directive came from Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu following complaints by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi over delays in completing such projects, which included living quarters. 

“I have already informed the ministry’s director-general to collect the data and investigate the reasons for the delays,” he said. 

He said some were half-completed, while for others only piling work had been done. 

Samy Vellu gave an assurance that future projects for the police would be completed faster through Industrial Building System (IBS) providers that supplied building materials under an integrated centre. 

Projects in the pipeline costing some RM1.4bil for the police, which included housing quarters and police station complexes, would be done the IBS way, he told reporters after attending the Sri Thandayuthapani Temple’s consecration ceremony here yesterday. 

On the removal of the Jelapang and Ipoh Selatan toll plazas, Samy Vellu assured Ipoh folk that the three exits to the city at Ipoh Selatan, Jalan Kuala Kangsar and Jelapang would remain.
