SIBU: Motorists have been told to help protect the beautiful scenery along the newly built Sibu-Kapit road.
Senator Robert Lau Hui Yew said it was disgusting to see empty water bottles littered at road signs along the stretch.
Lau said people should be more civic-minded by not dumping things along the road, and urged motorists not to spoil the picturesque scenery.
“It is a scenic drive. You can see the mighty Rajang River at certain stretches.
“The road is winding and undulating because of many small hills. This makes the drive more enjoyable, ” the Bawang Assan SUPP chairman said.
A small section of the road is still under construction and there is a schedule for passing through this section.
Work on the 110km Sibu-Kapit Road is still in progress, as a 8.6km section from Tamalat in Song to Ngungun in Kanowit will only be completed in December.
Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg had in October ridden a superbike all the way from Sibu to Kapit on the new road as part of a convoy that also visited the Nanga Ngemah/Nanga Temalat Road project site.
About 80 superbikes participated in the convoy.
