IPOH, 20 Feb. By September 15, 2025, phase 1 of the new road connecting Lenggong district with Sungai Siput, which runs from Kampung Beng to Kampung Raja Intan Suraya, is anticipated to be finished.

According to a statement from the Perak Public Works Department (PWD), the 4.15 kilometre (km) road was supposed to be finished by December 8, 2022, but the assigned contractor was fired on September 27, 2021, with construction progress at 43.3%, for failing to carry out the project as intended.

The department reported that a new contractor had been chosen, and on September 20 actual road building started.

The project will link five village areas, including Kampung Beng, Kampung Beng Dalam, Kampung Durian Lubuk, Kampung Durau, and Kampung Batu Reng. According to the department, construction costs for the project are expected to be RM50.5 million. For phase 2, road design will begin on November 11, 2021, and the road’s physical completion is anticipated on November 10, 2025, at a cost of RM146 million for a 9.31km stretch.

The road project was approved in accordance with the 11th Malaysia Plan, and at the planning stage, its total length was estimated to be 13.46 km, with its construction being carried out in two phases of 4.15 km each.

The road is anticipated to be a driver for the growth of the fishing industry and leisure-related industries in the Tasik Chenderoh area, particularly for the residents of Kampung Beng who would have easy access to Sungai Siput.

The planned road alignment was chosen to prevent direct harm to the Tasik Chenderoh hydroelectric power plant and the fisheries, which are both the primary sources of income for locals.
