Ipoh gets RM27.1mil allocation to improve city roads

IPOH: The Ipoh City Council will be conducting road maintenance and upgrading works on 24 roads here.

Ipoh Mayor Datuk Rumaizi Baharin (pic) said this would involve over 25km of city roads.

"We have received an allocation of RM27.1mil from the Malaysian Road Records Information System (Marris) for the whole project.

"Work will start from Oct 15 until Nov 23," he told reporters at the city council building here Thursday (Oct 15).

Among the roads involved are Jalan Musim Bunga, Jalan Raja Perempuan Mazwin SR 2, Jalan Ng Song Teik, Jalan Tun Abdul Razak, Jalan Labrooy, Jalan Perpaduan, Jalan Tambun Permai, Jalan Kamaruddin Isa, Jalan Kelab Golf, Jalan Sultan Iskandar and Jalan Dato Ahmad Said.

Rumaizi said the contractor responsible for the work was Puncak Emas Infra Sdn Bhd.

"All works will be conducted during non-peak hours to prevent traffic jams.

"For certain roads in the city like Jalan Sultan Iskandar, work will be carried out at night.

"There are no road closures but we will close certain lanes. We hope the people will give their full cooperation and follow the road signs when the work starts," he added.
