KUALA TERENGGANU, April 25 (Bernama) -- Repair and mitigation work of slopes at the Kenyir Dam, Hulu Terengganu, under the Public Works Department (PWD)’s purview, has reached a physical progress level of 30 per cent as of March 24.

State Infrastructure, Utilities and Rural Development Committee chairman Hanafiah Mat said the progress status had exceeded 19 per cent set in the project work schedule.

“PWD received a letter from the Ministry of Finance on Aug 10, 2023, with five work orders issued to the contractor Pintas Utama Sdn Bhd for repair work at five landslide locations along route T134 Jalan Kampung Gaung - Kuala Pueh, Jenagor.

“Work at the site started in October 2023 and is expected to be fully completed in the third quarter of 2025. The total cost of repairs is RM42,990,850,” he said.

He said this in his reply to a question from Hilmi Harun (PAS-Manir) who asked about the latest status of Kenyir Dam repair work due to landslides which occurred on Feb 27, 2022, during the oral question and answer session of the State Legislative Assembly sitting today.

At the same time, he said the repair work on slopes in the area of the Sultan Mahmud Power Station (SJSM), is under the supervision of a subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), which is TNB Power Generation Sdn Bhd (TNB Genco).

“The TNB Grid Division has also carried out slope repair work for the TNB line route area outside the station to ensure the structure remains strong. Stabilisation work on the basic structure of the transmission tower was also carried out to ensure that the electricity generated could be sent to the national grid system.

“The station’s has been running as usual and in good condition," he said.
