The Government of Perak will receive an allocation of RM60 million from the Ministry of Works (KKR) to maintain and repair damaged federal roads in the Malaysian state. Accident-prone sections will also be upgraded, including the Gerik-Jeli East-West Highway (JRTB) and the Lenggong-Gerik-Jeli route.

The road upgradation project is expected to boost socio-economy development of localities in Perak that are linked to neighbouring states.
