Works Minister Datuk Fadillah Yusof, who is also the MP for Petra Jaya, disclosed that the Matang road from Matang Jaya to Taman Malihah junction will be widened to ease traffic in the normally congested road especially during peak hours.

The MP also said that this project is complementing the new bridge which is to be built across Sg Sarawak from E-Mart in Matang Jaya.

Fadillah added that priority was also given to upgrade the Pan-Borneo highway, while works are on-going to connect the coastal road of Sarawak.
