Getting Ready for Telok Melano-Sematan Stretch Completion

CWC briefing held to get things in order

Thursday, 18 October 2018, Kuching: A briefing on Certificate of Works Package Contract Completion (CWC) was held yesterday to brief various stakeholders on the proper handing-over of Telok Melano-Sematan (WPC01) stretch.

The 32.770km stretch is expected to be completed by January next year.

Led by LBU Head of Support Services Azman Hashim, those who attended include the contractor, Resident Engineers Team (RET) and LBU, among others, were briefed on the handing-over process and their respective roles.

A briefing on Integrated Project Management System (IPMS) was also conducted by LBU IPMS Engineer Adruce Izzul Fahmi.

“We briefed them on their role during the issuance of the CWC. For instance, the contractor has to complete its works as per contract where it has to pass all testing and commissioning requirements, complying with the Road Safety Audit (RSA) comments while fulfilling all essential services as specified in the contract.

He said several acceptance criteria have to be complied with before the works can be accepted. This includes surface regularity tests and checking surface appearance and defects which will be carried out for pavement works.

“There must also be a proper gradient for the road shoulder while the culverts and drainage must be clear of silt, debris and vegetation growth. Traffic signs must be installed per drawings,” he added.

The contractor was also directed to compile all required Completion Documents inclusive of as-built drawings and test reports. These will be handed over to PDP as part of the CWC documents.

“Being the PDP, LBU will make sure that the handing-over is carried out according to the contract,” he added.

WPC 01 Telok Melano-Sematan stretch will be the first out of the 11 works packages to be completed.

Works on this two-lane single carriageway, undertaken by Samling Resources, which leads to the previously inaccessible hidden tourism gem of Telok Melano is currently in its final stages of asphalt pavement laying.
