SHAH ALAM: The Works Ministry has allocated RM3.13mil to upgrade motorcycle lanes on the Federal Highway in areas that fall under its care, says Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof.

The Works Minister said that the allocation would cover costs for brightening dark areas, installing pump houses at flood-prone areas, painting road lines and tunnel walls, lane-widening, building overhead ramps, additional signage and repair of intersections.

He was speaking to reporters after a visit to the Federal Highway motorcycle lane near the Batu 3 toll plaza here on Monday.

The 28.5-km Federal Highway was the first in the country to feature dedicated motorcycle lanes, and is collectively maintained by the Public Works Department (an 8.1km stretch), Kuala Lumpur City Hall (2.4km), Sprint (2km) and PLUS (16km).

Fadillah also urged motorists to lodge road damage reports via the "Aduan Jalan KKR" mobile app, which has since registered 5,000 users since its launch in March last year.
