Many stretches of rural timber roads have again turned into streams of mud.
Rural villagers said they are using logging debris to cover these streams in order to drive their vehicles across.
The head of the Baram Kiput minority native community, Michael Ding, said the roads were in very bad shape.
“Many link roads to the rural settlements are getting from bad to worse.
“The worst affected areas are the roads leading to populated settlements like Long Paloh and Long Terawan.
“The state authorities need to do something urgently as the weather is getting worse.
“Repair these roads now before the landas season comes,” he said.
The landas season in Sarawak is the equivalent of the monsoon in the east coast states of Peninsular Malaysia.
It can bring non-stop rain, floods and strong winds.
