Tanjung Manis may belong to another Division but a redrawing of the divisional boundaries does not change the physical and strategic location of Tanjung Manis relative to Sarikei.
Sibu is further from Tanjung Manis than Sarikei but Sibu had secured ~MYR$435M budget in 2006 under the 9th Malaysian Plan for a mega project (highway and 7 bridges) and construction is expected to be completed in a few months.
This has been a sore point in the minds of the Sarikei people and is expected to be one of the top state election topics for the hot seats of Repok and Meradong.
