KUCHING: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is scheduled to jointly open the newly-completed Telok Melano-Sematan road with Works Minister Baru Bian at Bulatan Sungai Kilong, Sematan at 10am tomorrow (Jan 26).

The 32.77km stretch of the Pan Borneo Highway will be open to road users after the opening ceremony. With its completion, the once inaccessible Telok Melano will be a scenic and comfortable 30 minutes’ drive from Sematan.

The project began on Sept 15, 2015 and took 39 months to complete.

The Telok Melano-Sematan stretch is the shortest of all Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak work packages.

A signing ceremony between Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak project delivery partner Lebuhraya Borneo Utara and the stretch’s main contractor Samling Resources Sdn Bhd to hand over the certificate of work package contract (WPC) completion was held on Jan 4.
