The government has allocated an immediate RM500,000 to improve and continue the retaining wall project at Kampung Santubong in Kuching.

The allocation includes the completion of a flood gate system and is said to benefit not only Kampung Santubong, but also nearby Kampung Buntal.

Works on the 150m rock revetment as well as a 350m retaining wall is at 26% currently with the walkway indirectly giving Kampung Santubong it’s very own waterfront.

Both villages are expected to see the project completed this year.
