Bored piling works for a 130-metre bridge in Nanga Machan, in the Kanowit District, has been completed.
The reinforced concrete bridge will be connected to the 9.5km Ulu Machan road, which is being upgraded to a two-lane R1 standard road.
With the fabrication of reinforcement cages for I-Girders and concreting for the bridge near completion, construction of the embankment slab will begin next month.
Meanwhile, premix laying works for the road is expected to commence within a week.
Construction for both the road and the bridge is expected to be completed by year’s end.
The projects are implemented by the Upper Rajang Development Agency (URDA), under RECODA.
