A Beaufort fire station in 104 weeks
Published on: Sunday, September 29, 2019
By: Ahmad Apong



Quote:
BEAUFORT: A new Fire and Rescue Station will be completed within 104 weeks beginning November 2019 as announced by the Sabah State Fire and Rescue Director.

The station was supposed to start operations in February next year but the Ministry of Local Government and Housing Malaysia has expedited its approval earlier than expected.

Officials along with consultant Noor Izwan came with over 20 contractors to brief the quotation to the contractors last week.

The tender will be opened until Oct 15, 2019 and the construction will include building the fire engine bay, control room, hose tower as well as two-storey office.

Mohammed Hasbullah said upon completion, the old fire station will be moved next to the District Hospital and Police Headquarters.

“It must be completed within 104 weeks by the selected contractor and they must comply with the security requirements when entering the premises as they are built near or adjacent to existing fire barrels”, he said.

While the price for the new building has yet to be announced, it is up to the Ministry and consultants when the quotation is released.

Mohammed Hasbullah said the main reason for the new building’s construction is because of the soil sedimentation that caused damage to the building structure in 1979.

“It is for the safety of firefighters as well as the narrow lanes where many of the vehicles are located in the district offices that mostly block emergency routes,” he said.

The district Fire and Rescue Station now has 21 firefighters and assisted by 15 auxiliary firefighters with three supervisors.

Labuan to be first to meet NFCP target by 2020
By Amir Hisyam Rasid - September 30, 2019 @ 2:34pm



Labuan is set to be the first territory in Malaysia to meet the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan’s target by 2020, ahead of previously scheduled 2023, Labuan Corp chairman Datuk Seri Amir Hussien said.

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Labuan is set to be the first territory in Malaysia to meet the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan’s target by 2020, ahead of previously scheduled 2023, Labuan Corp chairman Datuk Seri Amir Hussien said.

It is also expected to be the first to boast 5G technology, as soon as next year, he added.

Under NFCP, the government had set a few targets, one of which was to provide an average speed of 30 Mbps in 98 per cent of populated areas and gigabits availability in all state capitals including Labuan by 2023.

NFCP is a RM21.6 billion national connectivity plan that gives both the urban and rural population equal access to the Internet in an effort to reduce the digital divide.

Amir Hussien said by end of this year, local telecommunication companies will start upgrading their infrastructure to provide high quality and better internet speed and coverage in the whole island.

“This is a joint effort between telecommunication players, MCMC and Labuan Corp. It will be completed by 2020 and we work really hard to ensure that it is ahead of schedule.

“By year-end, Telekom Malaysia Bhd will be converting the copper cabling to fibre optic while other telcos are upgrading their connectivity in Labuan,” he said.

“Having a high speed connectivity in Labuan is key to attracting foreign and domestic direct investments,” he added.

He said Labuan was among a few areas or states that had implemented 5G trial and its deployment may begin as soon as next year.

Meanwhile, Amir Hussien said Labuan Corp had attracted key direct investments into the country.

This is less than a year since Labuan Corp had a new leadership, he added.

“Attracting direct investments into the country is work in progress. We have a lot of proposals on our table from the private sector, expressing their interest to be part of Labuan’s economic development.

“We have awarded two development works which would help promote Labuan’s economic growth. What is more important is that it is all for Labuan and its people as the development will create more jobs for Labuanese,” he said.

Amir Hussein said the corporation has awarded Singaporean Exchange-listed company Nam Cheong Ltd for transformation work of Labuan Halal Complex into modern and state of the art ship building yards and marine engineering facilities.

“The initial investment cost is about RM71 million and they will start the work in November. They informed us that they will start hiring locals for their business operation,” he said.

In addition to that, Amir Hussien said Hotel Billion Waterfront Resort had been sold to RedLand Group for a refurbishment into a five-star hotel comprising 130 rooms.

This will be the second five-star hotel in the island after Dorsett to accommodate tourists coming to Labuan, he added.

Kudat port plan on course
Published on: Wednesday, October 02, 2019
By: Bernama


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: The State Government will push for the development of a deep-water port in Kudat as part of its plan to invigorate Sabah’s northern area and provide the state with another strategic centre for trade.

The government plans to position Kudat as the epicentre for aquaculture and agriculture with direct trading with China, Vietnam, Indonesia and Hong Kong.

He said Sabah stands to benefit from Indonesia’s plan to move its capital to East Kalimantan.

“Sabah and Sarawak will take on a strategic significance like never before. The opportunities for Sabah’s trading base to broaden and merge with a bigger hinterland is inevitable.


“The Pan Borneo Highway linkage will further expedite this and connect us to what will be a robust and economically-charged city,” he said in a speech read by Sabah Health and People’s Wellbeing Minister Datuk Frankie Poon Ming Fung at the opening of the Second Sabah Port Forum, Tuesday.

Also present were Transport Deputy Minister Datuk Kamarudin Jaffar and the chairman of Suria Capital Holdings Bhd (Suria Capital) and Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd (SPSB) Tan Sri Ibrahim Menudin.

Organised by Suria Capital and SPSB, the two-day forum themed “Building the New Future: Unlocking Sabah’s Maritime Potentials” discussed issues related to the development of logistics and connectivity in Sabah, including cross-border trade, free-trade zone and maximising investment potentials in the aforementioned sectors.

He said even though it is still too early to assess the true impact of the development, domestic businesses must have a game plan and act on the opportunities and spillovers the development is set to bring.

“To progress into a high achieving state, collaboration and facilitation between government agencies and business entities must be forged for an optimal working relationship,” he said.

He also expressed his appreciation of the Transport Ministry’s efforts in strengthening Sabah’s logistics industry and its support towards boosting economic growth through the development of logistical capacities.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim in his speech said Suria Capital and SPSB had facilitated the state government by providing sustainable port services in Sabah and to-date, has saved the state government nearly RM10 billion in port infrastructure costs since the port’s privatisation in 2004.

“Suria Capital has contributed a steady stream of income to the state government by way of dividends and lease payments.

“Moving forward, we will continue to pledge our commitment to fulfil our mandated role in the provision of highly efficient port services and infrastructure in tandem with the socioeconomic development agenda,” he added.

Sarawak to build two International Internet Gateways, achieve 5G speeds — Abang Johari
Bernama October 04, 2019 18:29 pm +08
Quote:
KUCHING (Oct 4): The Sarawak Government is set to build two International Internet Gateways to achieve 5G internet speeds in the State.

Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said this was part of the Government’s main focus under the 12th Malaysia Plan in helping the State’s digital economy to take off.

He said he was made to understand that the two gateways, to be built here and in Miri, would be able to provide speeds up to 20 Terabits per second.

“This would enable us to reach 5G internet speeds,” he told media after launching the inaugural Borneo International Drone and Robotics Explore 2019, here, today which was jointly organised by Tabung Ekonomi Gagasan Anak Bumiputera Sarawak and the Sarawak Multimedia Authority.

Apart from exhibitions, talks and workshops, the 3-day programme will also see drone-related competitions with nearly 100 teams from Singapore, Brunei, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines ready to showcase their skills.

Abang Johari said with the infrastructure linking the State to the rest of the world via undersea fibre optic cables now sorted out, the Government would next need to focus on fibre-optic connections over land.

“We hope that under the 12th Malaysia Plan, we will upgrade all our connectivity towards 5G. In terms of training, the Centre of Technical Excellence Sarawak is working with Huawei now, and Huawei has the hardware for 5G.

“With this hardware plus our infrastructure, we will be able to link with any part of the world in real time, and this needs a lot of investment, and we have set aside some of our funds (for the purpose),” he said.

Langat 2 Plant to begin operations in January
Bernama November 08, 2019 00:48 am +08


Quote:
SHAH ALAM (Nov 7): The first and second phases of the Langat 2 Water Treatment Plant (LRA) are scheduled to begin operations in January next year.

Selangor State Infrastructure and Public Amenities, Agriculture Modernisation and Agro-based Industry Committee chairman Izham Hashim said the operations of the two Langat 2 phases could increase the water reserves in the State, given the capacity to produce 565 million litres of water per day.

He said that the two phases of the Langat 2 LRA were still at the trial stage to ensure they were able to meet water supply demand in the Klang Valley.

“When they begin operating in January, phase 1 and phase 2 of the Langat 2 LRA will produce 325 million litres of water per day. Later in March, another 240 million litres of water per day will be produced by both phases, bringing the total number to 565 million litres of water per day,” he said when met by reporters at the Selangor State Assembly building lobby here today.

Izham said the Langat 2 LRA project involved many stages, but for now, only the first and second phases were ready to begin operation.

Asked if the project could address the issue of frequent water supply disruptions in the Klang Valley, Izham said most of the problems were caused by human negligence.

"It's not due to the insufficient water supply, if we look at it, the water supply disruptions occur due to river pollutions and burst pipes, which often happen due to negligence while carrying out works," he said.

The construction of the RM8 billion Langat 2 LRA began in 2014 to meet the high water supply demand in the Klang Valley, and is capable of supplying 1,130 million litres of water per day when it is fully completed.

RM1.57b for infrastructure, public facilities
Published on: Monday, November 18, 2019
By: Larry Ralon


Quote:
KOTA KINABALU: A total of RM1.57 billion has been allocated for the development of infrastructure and public facilities, reflecting the State Government’s determination to provide quality infrastructure and basic amenities which are important for the people’s wellbeing and State’s economic growth.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said overall Sabah still lags in the development of quality infrastructure and basic amenities, which are necessary for the people’s wellbeing and to support the State’s economic growth.
As such, the State Government shall continue to focus on infrastructure development such as roads, bridges and public transports, as well as utilities, for instance, sewerage, water and electricity supply, he said.

“The determination of the Government is reflected through provision of a substantial allocation amounting to RM1.57 billion for infrastructure and public facilities. This amount includes the RM929.44 million allocation for the Infrastructure Development Ministry, its departments and agencies, and a further RM530.70 million allocation under the Finance Ministry,” he said when tabling the 2020 State Budget at the State Legislative Assembly, here, last Friday.

He said the Public Works Department (PWD) is allocated a sum of RM196.69 million to fund programmes to construct roads, bridges, sewerage facilities, slope protection works and repair as well as government buildings.

In addition, he said, the Federal Government is expected to allocate RM1 billion for the implementation of 11 ongoing projects and another four new projects under the Pan Borneo Highway.

He said among the programmes that will be implemented by PWD under State fund in 2020 include the construction and completion of new roads covering Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Tuaran, Beluran, Kudat, Putatan and in small towns as well as rural areas. Others include:

>Slope repairs and bridges as well as traffic management with an allocation of RM77.24 million;
>Construction and maintenance of State Government buildings including quarters (RM74.60 million); and
>Upgrading of sewerage systems in various districts including those under the local authorities where this programme will be jointly funded through federal loan of RM94.15 million and RM15 million from the State Government allocation.

Shafie, who is also Finance Minister, said the State Government will continue to give priority on the development of clean and treated water supply to meet the needs of the people as well as the demand of the industry and the commercial sector.

He said RM546.02 million has been allocated for the State Water Department to cover operation and development of water supply projects.

The programmes and projects that will be implemented include the Special Water Project with an allocation of RM125 million; for Non-Revenue Water Loss Reduction Rate Programme (RM7.9 million); programmes to upgrade water mains, distribution and reticulation system, water tank, reservoir and booster pumps as well as water treatment works (RM18.5 million); and Immediate Water Supply Programme and Sabah State Water Supply Plan (RM48 million) which will be financed by the State and reimbursed through federal soft loan.

“Water is important and is a critical basic necessity. Clean and adequate water supply is a critical factor to drive the economic growth,” said the Chief Minister.

The State Government has also allocated RM44.74 million for enhancing the quality of railway services in the State next year, said Shafie, adding this will be utilised for 10 proposed programmes, which include the construction and maintenance of railway tracks and slip-roads; repairs and upgrading of railway stations; as well as the replacement of diesel-set and hydraulic diesel engine units.

“In addition, the department will also complete two federal-funded projects which include procurement of Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU) and upgrading of the Halogilat-Tenom railway line with an allocation of RM33.4 million next year,”
he said.

He said for the Sabah Ports and Harbour Department, some RM21.68 million has been allocated for next year for its management and operations.

This allocation will be used to finance the maintenance of landing jetties; barter trade jetty; pilotage; and vessel traffic monitoring tower. Development allocation will be spent to continue, among others, on traffic control and cruise assistance programmes in the respective port limits of Sipitang, Tawau and Sandakan; and upgrading of the existing facilities in the Menumbok Ferry Terminal area.

“In addition, the Government is allocating RM122.74 million to the Department of Irrigation and Drainage in 2020, to be spent on urban drainage development programmes to avert and resolve flood issues as well as protection and erosion mitigation schemes at riverbanks and coastal area.

“This involves implementation of ongoing programmes and projects such as the flood prevention and mitigation schemes in Sungai Tawau, Tawau and Sungai Petagas Kg Sendil, Putatan; urban drainage schemes in Kota Kinabalu, Penampang and Tawau; as well as drainage schemes in Tenom and Beaufort,” he said.

Shafie also said the State Government is currently collaborating with Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) to increase energy distribution capacity from West Coast to East Coast through the Southern Link Project.

“The project will provide better electricity supply and will complement the main 275kV Grid system in Sabah
. For initial implementation, SESB is allocated grant and development fund amounting to RM69 million by the Federal Government between this year and 2020. This is to fund preliminary assessment works and land acquisition required for the proposed alignment of the transmission lines to the east coast,” he said.

Frequent electricity supply disruption that has been an issue in the East Coast of Sabah, has hampered social and economic development in that area, he said

TAWAU: The Federal Ministry of Housing and Local Government approved an allocation of RM8.9 million for a project to build a fire station on a three acre piece in Merotai.
The project is expected to be completed within two years.

The components of Category D Fire Station project consist of an E-type quarters and three F-type quarters, two rescue vehicles, 10 officers and 18 firefighters.

The construction of the station, which is located some 30 kilometres from the city centre, is crucial to facilitate rescue operations, especially in areas far from existing fire stations.

Thuss would also reduce their response time whereby previously Tawau Fire Station, which is some 31 kilometres away, will take about 36 minutes to travel.

She said the project is very beneficial and is seen as a necessity in the State given the large area and the long journey to the interior.


“This complements the overall development and method used by the Fire and Rescue Department to meet the needs of the people, especially in Merotai area,”

Also present were Tanjung Batu Assemblywoman, Datuk Hamisa Samat, Merotai Assemblyman Sarifuddin Hata and the Tawau Municipal Council President, Datuk Amrullah Kamal.
