MEMBAKUT: The hanging bridge connecting Kg. Sinoko and Kg. Bangkalawit near here that was damaged during the flood at Membakut River, yesterday, will be repaired immediately.
Membakut Assemblyman (ADUN), Datuk Ariffin Mohd Arif, said he has ordered the relevant agency to assess the damages on the 200m bridge.
He will also ensure that the bridge repair will be completed in a short period since it is the main route for the communities from both villagers especially for school children.
“The hanging bridge will be repaired in gotong-royong by villagers and contractor who has been given the responsibility in order for the bridge to be usable again for both village residents. Currently they have to cross the river with a raft as a temporary alternative,” he said when met during inspecting the bridge.
Ariffin who is also the Assistant Minister to the Chief Minister, also visited another nearby bridge at Kg. Sinoko that has been abandoned. – SayangSabah
