Sungai Kedayan Regeneration Project slated for completion in May 2018
BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN
THE construction of the Sungai Kedayan Regeneration Project commenced in January and is expected for completion in May 2018, revealed the home affairs minister yesterday.
“If we walk across Jambatan Edinburgh, ongoing construction can be seen,” he said at the 12th Legislative Council (LegCo), adding that a pedestrian walkway will be built in the area.
He explained the Bandar Seri Begawan Development Master Plan proposes various projects to be implemented under four catalyst projects in five growth areas across the capital.
These projects will be undertaken by the government and private sector including public private partnership.
State-funded projects being implemented include the construction of a bridge connecting Kg Sungai Kebun and Jambatan Residency, phase two of the Jalan Residency expansion, as well as two interchanges – Jalan Raja Pengiran Isteri Anak Sarah and Jalan Babu Raja, and Jalan Gadong Lebuh Raya Pengiran Muda Al-Muhtadee Billah and Jalan Telanai.
“The Eco-corridor Regeneration Catalyst Project for Sungai Kedayan and Kuala Sungai Kedayan to Jambatan Edinburgh – which aims to enhance and beautify the area – is currently ongoing,” said the minister.
In addition to beautifying the area, he said the project will involve the construction of a floodwall from Kuala Sungai Kedayan located nearby the Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah commercial area to Jambatan Edinburgh.
The project will also provide a promenade along the reclaimed area, which can be used for recreational purposes such as walking, jogging and cycling.
