HSL has RM179 million reclamation and infrastructure works for the shipping industrial estate in Tanjung Manis, RM136 million Sibu Flood Mitigation works, several road works throughout the state, building construction projects including educational institutions and additional reclamation works for industrial estates, among other on-going projects.
