New Sibu flyover open to road users

SIBU: The Sibu flyover, which is part of the Pan Borneo Highway project, is now open to road users.

Public Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi said with Gawai less than a week away on June 1, the public can now travel with ease.

"The opening of the flyover is timely, especially with Gawai just around the corner," he said when visiting the site on Sunday (May 28).

He said this flyover can be used by vehicles from Bintulu to Kuching without using the roundabout.

Likewise, he said, vehicles from Sibu Airport to Bintulu can also use the highway.

"This makes it easier for users without having to use the roundabout. This project is finally completed albeit a delay," he added.

Asked about the cost of constructing the flyover, he said it cost RM950mil with the route starting from the flyover up to Sungai Kua with a distance of 45.6km.

Nanta also reminded road users to obey the traffic rules such as the speed limit.

"Drive according to the set speed limit of 90km per hour. Don't see this road as perfect to drive fast," said the Kapit MP.
