KUCHING, Oct 19: Half of Jalan Foochow, Jalan Astana, Jalan Datok, and Jalan Resak in Sri Aman will be temporarily closed from Oct 16 to Nov 30, 2023 (8am to 5pm) so that the principal contractor for the B2a Project in Sri Aman Division can perform tree felling.

According to a notice issued by Sarawak Public Works Department (JKR), detours/road closures will only be implemented during tree felling operations at the work site in order to provide space for heavy machinery to perform the work.

“However, these roads will be opened as soon as possible if the construction work can be completed ahead of schedule in order to facilitate the movement of traffic. Please adhere to the warning signs placed in and around the affected area, and kindly cooperate with and follow the instructions of the road guard to ensure smooth traffic flow.

“JKR Sri Aman Division will inform if there is any change in the date, time or area involved with the works,” said JKR in the notice.

The notice also emphasised the importance of road users carefully planning their journeys when road works are being conducted.

“If you have any complaints or queries regarding the flow of traffic in the area, please contact the JKR Office Sri Aman Division at 083-322181 during office hours,” it noted. — DayakDaily
