Phase Two of the Pan Borneo Highway involving the Limbang-Lawas stretch is expected to begin at the end of this year.

Works Minister Fadillah Yusof said the paper on the proposal had been handed over to the government’s highest-level technical committee.

He said the proposal also gave a choice whether to do the alignment through Brunei or an alternative route. 

"The paper also provided a number of choices; we hope to get the decision in October and finally we will hand it to our Project Delivery Partner to appoint a contractor for the construction of the second alignment from Limbang to Lawas," he told reporters at his Aidilfitri open house in Kuching today.

On Phase One of the Pan Borneo Highway, he said the project was going on smoothly except for some delays at certain locations.

"So far Alhamdulillah, all the projects in phase one can be said to be ahead of time, according to schedule and one or two behind schedule due to problems related to land that need to be resolved.

"But overall, the project is being implemented satisfactorily," he said.

Meanwhile, Fadillah said the sincere and warm interaction among the guests at his open house symbolised the harmony that prevailed in Sarawak.

"It is Sarawak’s uniqueness and strength which we must maintain to spur development and bring about well-being and prosperity for the state and country," he said.
