Monday, 16 April 2018, Kuching: As part of the effort to inculcate good safety practices, WPC10 (Bakun Junction-Sungai Tangap) organised a safety talk and exhibition last Saturday at SK Batu Tellingai in Suai Miri.
About 150 people, including Standard 4 to 6 pupils, parents and teachers turned up at the event where they listened to various talks which included green practices and road safety.
The pupils also took part in a colouring and safety slogan writing competition.
Similar event was also organised by WPC01 (Telok Melano-Sematan), WPC06 (Sungai Awik Bridge-Bintangor Junction) and WPC09 (Sungai Arip Bridge-Bintulu Airport Junction).
The event came timely when LBU, being the Project Delivery Partner for Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak, has continuously emphasised on work and road safety.
It is apt that these events were held at schools as it is important to inculcate safety habits right from the young.
Other than this event, LBU had also organised a road safety campaign last Chinese New Year festival. At the same time, it has also taken up airtime on popular radio stations like Hitz FM, Era FM and My FM urging road users to drive safe on Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak which is currently being constructed.
Last Friday, the Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak received an appreciation certificate from the Ministry of Human Resources for its 10mil safe man hours achievement which was achieved on November 30 last year.
