Demolition and site clearing have been completed for the construction of the new access road to the Tunoh Scheme.
The proposed new road is approximately 2.8km long and will connect to the new administrative centre of the Bukit Mabong District.
Residents who have been affected have been compensated via ex-gratia payment. Earthworks are expected to be completed soon after rock excavation have been carried out.
The infrastructure project is implemented by the Upper Rajang Development Agency (URDA), under RECODA. It is expected to be completed this year.
