KUALA PILAH: Another highway project is being planned between the east and west coasts to not only reduce traffic congestion but also open another economic corridor.

The alternative road, between Seremban in Negeri Sembilan and Kemayan in Pahang, will also shorten travel time, said Deputy Works Minister Eddin Syazlee Shith.

“I hope that this project will proceed because it will also promote tourism and develop the local economy,” he told reporters here after the handing over of 15 units of KipleLive artificial intelligence (AI) heat scanners by Green Packet Bhd.

According to Eddin, who is also Kuala Pilah MP, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah was told of the project, when he was still the Regent of Pahang, and he welcomed it.

The AI heat scanners will be installed at several locations in Kuala Pilah, including Istana Seri Menanti and the Kuala Pilah District and Land Office.
