Sarawak Bridge Projects Delayed

Two bridge projects in Sibu and Lundu have been delayed for far too long.

Works Ministry parliamentary secretary Datuk Yong Khoon Seng said the Government wanted to ascertain the reasons for the delay.

Datuk Seri Samy Vellu will visit and inspect both the RM96 million Durin bridge project in Sibu and the Batang Kayan bridge project in Lundu to find out the causes of the delay.

The Durin project started in 1999 and was supposed to be completed in 2003. The completion date had been extended to December next year (2 years delay???) due to the difficulties of piling works caused by strong river currents.

The Batang Kayan project was supposed to be completed in 2002. It was submitted that the tender price was too low and the contractor could not continue with the project.
Does any of my students knows of or are involved with these projects? Please tell me what happens!
