KKUCHING: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Abdul Razak is scheduled to officially open the RM211 mil-lion Batang Sadong Bridge in the morning of this coming 18 December.

Dubbed as the longest bridge across a river in Malaysia, it was completed in October this year after constructions began in July 2012, a statement from the State Protocol and Public Relations Unit (UPPAN) of the Chief Minister’s Office said yesterday.

The 1.48km bridge spanning across the Sadong River in the Batang Sadong parliamentary constituency is said to cut travelling time from Kuching to Sibu by three hours.

Prior to this it took eight hours to reach Sibu from Kuching. Upon arrival at the site, the premier will be given a brief-ing on the background of the bridge before he will deliver his speech.

Also speaking at the grand event will be the Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem and Works Minister, Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof.

Thereafter, the prime minister will fly to Miri where he will launch another eight packages of the ongoing Pan Borneo Highway project from Sematan to Miri at the Eastwood Valley Country Club.

There, Najib is also expected to witness a works contract agreement signing ceremony by ten works package contrac-tors and to present to them the contract letters, letters of awards and letters of intent.

Yesterday morning, a committee meeting chaired by UPPAN’s Director Dato Khir Busrah was held at the Dewan Undangan Negeri complex to finalise details and prepara-tions pertaining to the two events.
