Infrastructure Development Under IIBD Master Plan Expected To Begin Mid-Year

JOHOR BAHRU, Jan 2 (Bernama) -- The construction of elevated intersections, pedestrian walkways and road repair works in the city centre, which come under the Infrastructure Integrated Plan of the Ibrahim International Business District (IIBD) Master Plan, are expected to start in the middle of this year.

Johor Bahru Mayor Amran Abdul Rahman said the construction works would commence after the completion of tender process.

"We expect that the construction works would begin after the opening of the projects´ tenders early this year," he told reporters here today.

Amran said the infrastructure projects, which obtained RM250 million in facilitation funds from the federal government via the Public Private Partnership Unit (UKAS), would take two years to be completed.

"Normally, government projects will take two years (to be completed) including this project. The road repair and upgrading works will cover Jalan Gereja, Jalan Tun Sri Lanang, Jalan Salim, Jalan Trus and Jalan Sulaiman," he said.

Meanwhile, Amran said the Johor Bahru City Council (MBJB) would embark on adding more parking areas to solve parking problems in the city.

Some 330 parking lots would be made available at an area near the Foh Chong Building here through the allocation from MBJB, he said.

Amran also said that the landscape beautification works by the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) in the Sungai Segget area would commence early this year with an allocation of RM40 million from the federal government.

"The type of landscape has been decided and the beautification works will start early this year," he added.
