Road to connect Batang Maro-Sessang to be built this year-Rohani

SARATOK: The construction of a road to connect Batang Maro and Sessang, a distance of 13km, will be carried out this year, said Batang Lupar Member of Parliament Datuk Seri Rohani Abdul Karim.

Without disclosing the cost of the project, Rohani, who is also Women, Family and Community Development Minister, said the road would boost the economy of the residents in Batang Maro as they could easily market their agriculture products.

“Currently, Batang Maro is only accessible by boat via the Batang Lupar estuary. So, it is difficult for the residents to market their harvests,” she said.

She said the road was a crucial project for the residents because transporting their harvests such as banana to the markets by using boats was a costly undertaking. — BERNAMA
