THE Cabinet has decided that part of the additional allocation of RM150 million announced yesterday will be used for the installation of Bailey bridges in flood-affected areas in Johor.

Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the bridges will help address collapsed roads like in Sekijang.

“Its MP has informed me of the need for a Bailey bridge (there).

“The district-level coordinating committee will be able to install the Bailey bridge before the repairs and upgrading of the roads are completed,” he told reporters at the Bagan Datuk Umno division delegates meeting in Bagan Datuk today.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim ordered all government machinery to help in post-flood operations in Johor and approved an additional allocation of RM150 million for this. – Bernama, March 18, 2023.
