Contractors Working on Delayed Road Works Now

Despite the delayed one of the projects is the four-lane road from the roundabout near E-mart Matang towards Stapok, Batu Kawah, contractors are now working towards completing it.

On new projects from the 2nd Rolling Plan of the 11th Malaysia Plan, Minister of Works, Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said projects such as the flyover at Jalan Medan Jaya-Jalan Tun Hussein Onn in Bintulu are currently in the process of appointing consultants whereas the Batang Igan Bridge project is still in the process of value management and value engineering.

Meanwhile, when asked what could be done to ease traffic congestion during the construction of four flyovers from Mile 4½ to Mile 10 of Kuching-Serian Road, Fadillah said standard operating procedures would be applied.

"When constructing roads, we have set guidelines, specifically traffic management programmes (TMPs) to reduce inconvenience to road users and to determine that the safety level is good.

"But at the same time, we also hope that road users understand that whenever there is construction, there will be temporary inconvenience and discomfort. This is why they have to follow the directions and whatever notices that are issued from time to time so as to facilitate the traffic flow and reduce congestion" he advised.
