A new road is being constructed to link the Baleh Bridge with Pelagus Resort in the Kapit District in a infrastructure project implemented by the Upper Rajang Development Agency (URDA), under RECODA.
In between, the 7.4km R1 Standard road will also connect to Rumah Belaja, Nanga Benin and SK Nanga Pelagus. Three Bailey Bridges will also be constructed, crossing Sungai Benin, Sungai Raya and Sungai Mela.
Soil investigation works have been completed while demolition and site clearing are underway. The project, which began late last year, is expected to be completed by 2022.
Construction workers have been instructed to follow the SOP, set by health authorities in view of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) period.
