Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri (Dr) Abang Haji Abdul Rahman Zohari bin Tun Haji Openg, Premier Sarawak has visited the following project sites:

i) Pakej 5: Cadangan Membina dan Menyiapkan Jambatan Bintulu-Jepak Merentasi Kuala Kemena, Bahagian Bintulu, Sarawak.

ii) Cadangan Gantian Penuh 12 Bilik Darjah (200 pelajar) Asrama dan 12 Unit Rumah Guru dan Lain-Lain Kemudahan di Sekolah Kebangsaan Ulu Segan, Kemena, Bintulu.

The visit was conducted after Mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Penyelarasan Pembangunan Negeri Bil.1/2022 which was held in Bintulu. During the visit, YAB Premier was briefed by Ir. Richard Anak Tajan, Director of Public Works Sarawak. Once the cable-stayed bridge across Kuala Kemena is fully completed, the traveling duration from Bintulu Airport to Bintulu Town will be significantly reduced. Besides that, this project will also provide linkage to the growth nodes for Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy such as Samalaju Industrial Park, Matadeng Industrial Park and Mukah Smart City. In general, this bridge will improve the socioeconomic standard for people in Bintulu.


The next project site that has been chosen was Sekolah Kebangsaan Ulu Segan. It has been completed in May 2022 and was fully funded by Sarawak State Government. The scope of works include replacement for administrative blocks, academic blocks, quarters, hostels, dining hall, kindergarten and sheltered bicycle parking spaces. This will ensure the safety for the students and teachers as well as providing a conducive teaching and learning environment.
