Sabah Pan Borneo highway project under review for restructuring


Modified 30 Sep 2018, 3:25 am

Sabah’s Infrastructure Development Ministry is reviewing the Pan Borneo Highway in the state, said its minister Peter Anthony.

He said the review was to look into restructuring to be done in view of leakages.

The recommendations from the review would be forwarded to the Works Ministry, Finance Ministry and the Sabah government, he told a press conference after opening the Festival Sayangi Lahad Datu @Silam in Lahad Datu last night.

He was commenting on Works Minister Baru Bian’s comments that there was a 36 percent delay involving the project.

Anthony said his ministry had notified the Finance Minister about the matter and believed Sabah Chief Minister Mohd Shafie Apdal had also updated Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad on the problem.

He added that his ministry also planned to remove Syarikat Borneo Highway (BHP) PDP Sdn Bhd which was appointed as the coordinator for the project and that the task would be taken over by the Public Works Department which comes under the Sabah Infrastructure Development Ministry.
