SIBU, Sept 2: Work on the much-awaited Jalan Sibujaya-Kong Yit Khim road is expected to be completed by January 2024.

The 6.75km road, costing RM95.6 million, will reduce travelling time by 20 minutes between Sibujaya and Sibu town centre.

“When this road is completed later, more development in the local area will be implemented,” said Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Port Development Sarawak Aidel Lariwoo today.

Speaking to reporters during the project site visit, he shared that the project is on schedule at 77 per cent completion.

“This dual carriageway road is of Public Works Department (JKR) R5 standard and will be equipped with streetlights,” he said.

According to him, work on the project is experiencing some minor problems at Section 6 of Sibujaya involving some settlements in the area.

“Although there are some problems and delays due to the implementation of the movement control order (MCO), this project can be carried out according to schedule,” explained the Sadong Jaya assemblyman. — DayakDaily
