KUCHING, May 29: The Kuching-Samarahan Expressway traffic light project is expected to be completed by October 2023 after the Public Works Department (JKR) engages with a new contractor this July.

Kota Samarahan Municipal Council (MPKS) chairman Dato Peter Minos said the critical problem of traffic congestion along the expressway would then be resolved, on top of the Autonomous Rapid Transit (ART) project that will come up last quarter of this year.

“MPKS welcomes this project because it will surely help solve Samarahan’s perennial traffic problems,” he said in a statement today.

On other upcoming developments, Minos said a hospital, a cancer centre, an infectious disease research centre, MPKS headquarters, Puspakom headquarters, a shopping mall and a housing hub would be established in Samarahan.

He also said that Sarawak Premier’s constituency of Gedong, also in the Samarahan division, will see fast development and progress.

“MPKS will face all challenges as councillors and staff are united, and as all the YBs (elected representatives) in Samarahan go all out to help the council,” he said. — DayakDaily
