Public Works Department (PWD) Sarawak through the Pan Borneo Highway Unit (PBHU) has recently paid a visit to the Head of the Ketua Jabatan Siasatan dan Penguatkuasaan Trafik (JSPT) Sarawak, Polis DiRaja Malaysia (PDRM) Superintendent Alexson Naga Chabu at the Sarawak PDRM Contingent Headquarters, Jalan Badarudin near here.

During the visit, the PDRM and JKR Sarawak are committed to work together in several matters, especially those that are related to traffic management during the construction work of the Sarawak Pan Borneo Highway which is currently being implemented in full swing.

Apart from that, JKR Sarawak and PDRM Sarawak also plan to hold more public awareness programs on prudent driving on highways as PBHS is the first highway in Sarawak and based on accident statistics, most accidents involve speeding and loss of control.

During the meeting, both parties also discussed the issue of theft and damage to traffic control equipment such as solar lights, blinkers and safety equipment which are among the causes of the lack of safety aspects on the route which is also feared to invite accidents to road users.

During the visit PBHU was represented by Mr. Sahrein Maloh, Manager of the Corporate Communications and Land Issues Sub-unit and Mr. Lawerence Robert Tasser, Senior Traffic Management Officer of the Traffic Management Sub-unit.
