TEMERLOH: Sultan of Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah has called on the people to continue supporting the Barisan Nasional Government to ensure the long- and short-term development agendas will continue to benefit them.
The construction of the RM64mil Kuala Krau bridge across the Pahang river, for example, was one of the sustainable developments that would benefit the people living along the river banks, he said.
The bridge will help reduce the time to make the 55km trip between Bandar Tun Razak in Jengka and Kuala Krau to just 20 minutes from one hour previously.“The bridge will also act as a catalyst for economic development in Bandar Tun Razak, Jerantut and Temerloh. It will benefit 60,000 people in Jerantut, Temerloh and Maran by reducing the trip to just 22km,” Sultan Ahmad Shah said after visiting the construction site yesterday. - The Star
