Mersing: the final frontier
There has been a lot of talk on the Eastern corridor, and how they plan on extending the highway all the way to Mersing. What implications is it going to have? Is Mersing going to change from a quaint fishing town into a hectic big city? Personally, I certainly hope not.
Also in the NST, it was quoted that over RM3b worth of private investments were literally going to pour into the town. For what? Reclaiming the coastline (which has been mentioned on many occasions in the past, and still has yet to be realized), and a round-the-clock 24h jetty (how many people want to go to Tioman at 4am?).
