KAPIT: Bukit Goram assemblyman Jefferson Jamit Unyat yesterday inspected the ongoing project to build a bridge across Sungai Kapit to connect Jalan Bukit Goram to SK Sungai Kapit on the other side of the river.

Jamit was happy to note that the RM12.93 million project, which commenced in November last year and is expected to be completed in May next year, was progressing well.

The general view of the construction site.

He explained that the bridge project was one of the walkabout projects approved by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg during his official visit to Kapit in April 2017.

He said upon completion, the project will benefit some 500 pupils and teachers of the school as they could drive all the way to the school.

Presently, the school is only accessible by a wooden suspension bridge for pedestrians.

During rainy season the cement footpath and suspension bridge would be quite slippery and inconvenient for pupils, teachers and parents to use.

Jamit thanked the Chief Minister for approving the project, which is funded by the Sarawak government.

Upon his arrival, Jamit was met by Public Works Department Central Region project manager Louis Jonathan Philip, the contractor and community leaders.
