Abang Johari assures Pan Borneo Highway to be toll-free

Date:

BINTULU: Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg has assured that the entire Pan Borneo Highway in Sarawak will be toll-free.

“When the late Pehin Sri Adenan Satem officiated the start of the Pan Borneo Highway, I remembered he wanted it to be toll-free,”

“Therefore, as his successor, I will ensure his aspiration would be upheld,” he said at the official opening of the Sarawak Pan Borneo Highway – Nyabau Section (Work Package Contract 10) here today.

Abang Johari said he has not forgotten the wishes and good services delivered by the late Adenan, who was the former chief minister.

“He was the one who started this big project and was supported by the then Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. This highway project was indeed a great service from our leaders,” he said.

Abang Johari also expressed his gratitude to the people of Bintulu who had given a strong mandate to Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) in the 12th Sarawak state election.

“I am confident that with the support and cooperation of the people, we will be able to continue our efforts to transform Sarawak into a developed and high-income state by 2030,” he said.

Among those who present were Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas, Senior Works Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof, Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department Datuk John Sikie Tayai, and Modernisation of Agriculture and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom.
