Friday, 2 November 2018, Kuching: A series of engagement with all the 11 works packages are being held since last week to deliberate on issues concerning the fibre optic cable cut which may interrupt with the works progress of Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak.
LBU, being the Project Delivery Partner has taken the lead in initiating this engagement which also involved SACOFA, the telecommunications infrastructure provider, to give the contractors and those involved in the utilities relocation works a clear picture on what needs to be done to minimise the impact of unintentional cable cut due to relocation works.
During the dialogue session last week, LBU briefed to the contractors on the permit needed to carry out the utility relocation works and the repercussion on cable cut.
SACOFA meanwhile listed down the impact of cable cut which among others include the interruption of communication lines.
It also briefed those present on what could be done to minimise the impact when this relocation works are carried out.
Any impact caused by the cable cut will only delay the works progress not only in the relocation works but also the construction progress.
Hence, these series of engagement with the contractors, an initiative from LBU, came timely as Stage 2 of the utilities relocation works has to be completed by the end of December this year.
