KK-Miri road to be elevated to double carriageway under 10MP

17Nov09

According to the New Sabah Times dated Nov 17 2009 ” A 325km stretch of the Kota Kinabalu-Miri road passing through Brunei Darussalam will be elevated to a double carriageway and would reduce travelling time between Sabah and Sarawak. ”

This was announced by the Federal Works Minister Work Datuk Shaziman Abu Mansor and who added ” The upgrading will be done in phases at a cost of RM513 million under the 10th Malaysia Plan (2011-2015) . He said the upgrading would involve the stretches of Kota Kinabalu-Beaufort (95km), Beaufort-Sipitang (60km) and Sipitang-Sindumin (20km) in Sabah and the stretches of Mengkalap-Merapok (60km), Panduran-Tendungan (60km) and Sungai Tujuh-Miri (30km) in Sarawak.

Once upgraded, the road would help generate more economic and agricultural activities in the respective regional development corridors of the two states.

He said the job would also include upgrading three immigration posts and one Customs complex and the Sungai Tujuh Immigration & Quarantine office at the Sarawak-Brunei Darussalam border as well as numerous bridges. ” .

Would this improvement helps to cut down transportation cost between Miri and KK ?
