RM6m project to deepen river

By August, fishing and tour boats will have a safe passage along Sungai Kuala Besut when a dredging project to deepen the river is completed. Some 5,000 fishermen and 200 tour boat operators plying from the river jetty to Pulau Perhentian will benefit from the RM6 million project to be carried out on a 500-metre stretch.
