BATU SAPI:- The dilapidated wooden bridge linking a village to the main Jalan Cecily has been recently upgraded to ensure the safety of the more than 50 residents.
The nearly 42 foot long old bridge was replaced with a concrete structure after the concerns of those living in the area was brought to the attention of Batu Sapi Member of Parliament Datuk Linda Tsen Thau Lin.
The upgrading work was carried out utilizing allocation from the Batu Sapi MP Fund when residents raised the matter with Linda during one of her “turun padang” visits.
Linda accompanied by her officers including Head Liaison Officer Kong Nyuk Thou inspected the structure and met with residents following the completion of the project.
A representative of the villagers said the deteriorating condition had rendered the wooden bridge unsafe for their vehicles to pass through.
He thanked Linda for responding promptly to allay their fear for their safety when crossing the dilapidated wooden bridge.
