Teluk Segadas in Pangkor Island to undergo RM20mil development

The Pangkor Island skyline is set to undergo major changes following plans to develop a 121ha piece of idle land in Teluk Segadas into a tourist hub.

Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir said the project would consist of houses, which tourists could invest in, as well as boarding houses.

“There will be mixed development on the piece of land, which has been left idle for some 20 years now,” he told reporters after a working visit to the island recently.

Noting that the developer had recently met with him to discuss its plans for the site, Dr Zambry explained that the developer had been holding on to the piece of land due to lack of funding.

“Now that this has been settled, it is all systems go,” he said.

On another matter, Dr Zambry said the state would be setting up additional fishing villages on the island to accommodate its second generation of fishermen.

“Under Budget 2012, the Federal Government had allocated RM20mil for the purpose.

“We are in the process of identifying which are the suitable locations on the island to develop these villages,” he said, adding that fishing villages on the island were located at Teluk Gedong and at the end of Sungai Pinang Kecil, at present.

Dr Zambry also told reporters that the state Public Works Department had been tasked with ensuring public projects were delivered on time.

Citing the island’s RM70mil police station as an example, he said work had been delayed for several months due to a change in contractors.

“I want to see the project completed within the 18-month contract period,” he said, adding that the SM Pangkor hall was also being delayed.

Is he crazy? Building at teluk Segadas means you have to flatten the hills. How much does Zambry earns out of this?
