Baru Bian

SIBU, Dec 15: Works Minister Baru Bian expressed dissatisfaction with the construction work for the Miri-Sibu segment of the Pan Borneo Highway project, stating the contractors needed to improve the quality of the road.

Having tested the Miri-Bintulu road last night and Bintulu-Sibu stretch this morning himself following many complaints from the people, Baru said there were many potholes that could endanger road users.

“I want to say I am not happy. There are many potholes and these pose a danger to road users, especially at night when visibility is poor,” he said.

He said though there were challenges faced by contractors, they must adhere to certain standards.


“The contractors need to buck up. My ministry will be monitoring all works very closely and I will not compromise on this,” he told reporters. — DayakDaily
