“By implementing this, the contractors will certainly exhibit quality work and meet the specifications required,” he told Selangor Kini.

Kuang Assemblyman, Abdul Shukor Idrus, suggested for the state government to establish a special technical team to assess the provisions of each contract.

“This is important because the state government has chosen the concept of the lowest tender, so evaluation should be done.

“See if the provision, despite being low, is compatible with the work to be carried out first.

“We do not want low prices but low quality that would eventually waste the people money,” he said.

He said that unsatisfactory road paving also happens in his area, including the main Kuang road and its surrounding areas.
