KUCHING: The much-awaited underpass project at Datuk Abang Haji Kipali roundabout in Petra Jaya will be completed this June.

Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, in disclosing this, said the project that started in November 2015 was scheduled for completion in January this year. However, it was delayed due to various factors, including unfavourable weather conditions.

“Although there is a delay in the project, which was funded by the state government at a cost of RM67 million, it will be completed this June and the contractor and Public Works Department (JKR) are confident that it can be completed in June,” he told reporters today.

Earlier, he visited the project together with JKR officers.

Fadillah said the contractor has also increased the number of workers in order to complete on time.

He also told reporters that he has requested the contractor to tar-seal the uppermost section of the road before polling day (May 9) in order to give convenience to voters to cast their votes.
