Pahang govt spends RM3.37m to upgrade facilities at Teluk Chempedak

KUANTAN (Feb 8): The Pahang government has spent RM3.37mil allocation from Tourism Ministry to repair and upgrade facilities at Teluk Chempedak beach here.

Chairman of State Tourism, Arts and Heritage, Family Development and Women's Affairs Committee Datuk Shafik Fauzan Sharif said the allocation under Ninth Malaysia Plan (9MP) and Tenth Malaysia Plan (10MP) was for ten projects.

"Several projects have been completed. Some are at final phase including the one kilometre pedestrian walk connecting Teluk Chempedak to Tanjong Tokong and eco-friendly public toilets which are at 20% construction.

"First phase construction of the boardwalk, which started in July last year was completed in November, while the second phase which started in December is due for completion this month," he said after inspecting the two projects in Teluk Chempedak on Wednesday.

Shafik said upgrading of the pedestrian walk was to replace the rotting planks with fibre reinforced plastic (FRP) which can last up to ten years.

Construction of the eco-friendly public toilets costing RM500,000 had been completed and can save 50% of electricity and water.

He reminded visitors to popular Teluk Chempedak beach to be more responsible in mantaining the facilities and keeping the environment clean. — Bernama
