Road construction in jengka triangle regional land development project
The jengka triangle project is a regional development scheme consisting of land development and settlement, supplemented with subsidiary industries based on agricultural production and the exploitation of the indigenous forest. The triangle is bounded on the periphery by three existing roads. On the upper two sides of the triangle, there are the jerantut-temerloh road and the jerantut-maran road. On the south, there is the temerloh-maran road, which is part of the federal route ii which runs across the peninsular from port klang on the west to kuantan on the east via kuala lumpur. An internal road network has been planned to provide adequate facilities for the movement of all goods within and out of the triangle. Access (secondary) roads have been planned to provide good communication between the villages, the processing factories, and the primary (trunk) road system. For every settlement unit, a system of agricultural (tertiary) roads is established to provide access between the villages and the primary crop areas, while internal village roads provides for the social communication of the settlers. The work scheduling and activities undertaken as well as costs involved in the roadworks are also described.
