New road from Punang to Kampung Sungai Bangat, Lawas
The coastal village of Punang in the Lawas District will be linked to nearby Kampung Sungai Bangat in an infrastructure project implemented by the Northern Region Development Agency (NRDA), under RECODA.
A new 1.8km road of R1 Standard will be constructed while an existing earth road of about 1km will be widened and upgraded. Punang is located about 11km from Lawas Town.
Site clearing has been carried out along with the stripping of top soil to make way for road works. Construction of drainage structures have also begun.
The project is expected to be completed by early 2022.
