BELAIT

THE development of basic infrastructure in the interior areas of Belait district is well under way with the construction of a 24km access road into Mukim Sukang and Mukim Melilas almost 45 per cent completed.

The $10.7 million road project, said deputy assistant director of Belait and Tutong Public Works Department Pg Adnan Pg Badaruddin, would hopefully pave the way for more development in this part of the country and improve the living conditions of its residents.

The road which stretches from the end of Mukim Bukit Sawat all the way up to Mukim Melilas has top priority in the development of infrastructure because it will provide access for future development projects.

The road is currently in its 14th month of 30-month construction timetable and will hopefully be fully completed by September 2011, said Pg Adnan.
