Drain In Front Of SJK Chung Hua Lutong Completed, “Solving The People’s Problems Is Most Important”

07.01.2016--Solving the people’s problems is the most important thing and there is no need to take the credit but just walk the talk!”

For decades, the earth drain in front of SJK Chung Hua Lutong could not cope whenever it rained and flooding would cause traffic congestion especially during student drop off and pick up times.

Both problems faced by SJK Chung Hua Lutong had not been addressed for many years until Dato Hii King Chiong made effort to request for allocation and upgrading of drainage system last year.

The Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID) Miri-Bintulu divisional engineer Law Wee said after the department received the allocation in December last year, they immediately started the upgrading work. The project was completed in a month and cost RM160,000.

Hii said that the road in front of the school was too narrow for parents to park their cars and therefore he would arrange to put gravel stones on grass by the roadside so as to ease traffic congestion.

He said that one must fight for the interests of the people and solve their problems rather than fight for credit.
