“It is disconcerting that the road projects that may have significant environmental impacts and affect the wellbeing of the people near the routes are being endorsed without proper public consultation,” said CAP president S.M. Mohamed Idris in a statement released today.

The three road projects – North Coastal Paired Road Tanjung Bungah-Teluk Bahang; Air Itam-Lebuhraya Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu By-Pass; and Persiaran Gurney–Lebuhraya Tun Dr. Lim Chong Eu By-Pass – involve routes through residential areas, commercial areas, hills and areas of public interest.
