Motorists travelling home for the Chinese New Year celebration along the 60km Sibu-Selangau road, which is part of the Pan Borneo Highway, can expect a smoother drive once resurfacing works are completed tomorrow.


Special Function Officer to Works Minister Baru Bian, See Chee How, said the progress had been hampered by heavy rain.

See, who made a site visit with Pelawan assemblyman David Wong and Kanowit PKR chief George Chen, said the contractors had been working hard to patch up potholes and uneven surfaces.

“They are trying to make the road safer for motorists before this weekend when the traffic is expected to be heavy with people going back for the festive holiday.

“They even carry out work at night as the weather is good,” he added.

The road’s poor condition caused many accidents in the past while punctured tyres and damages to vehicles have been common.

“All of us at the ministry and Public Works Department are concerned about the safety of motorists using the road,” he said, adding that the contractors will also replace broken signage and street lights.

“I urge all to drive safe. Do not speed and it is always good to be back home,” he said.
