Mile 4 ½ Interchange taking shape, expected to be completed by April next year

Wednesday, 16 October 2019, Kuching: With the piling work for Mile 4 ½ Interchange now fully completed, the project team has now moved on to do beam launching for this seven spans structure.

LBU project manager for Sematan to Sungai Moyan (Works Package 02) Dahlim Mungkil said so far, beams had been launched for three out of the seven spans.

“We are targeting to launch the beams for the rest of the spans end of this year.

“All seven pile caps have been completed and currently, we are concentrating on the two last cross heads and abutments construction.

“We are proceeding to do the diaphragm beams, deck slabbing and eventually the parapet wall,” said Dahlim

With the current progress and productivity at site, the project team is confident that the 250m long flyover will be structurally completed by April next year.

“However, the flyover can only be opened to traffic three months later in July next year when it is fully completed with all signages and accessories done,” added Dahlim.

The interchange is one of the four interchanges under Works Package 02. The other three are Mile 6, Mile 7 and Mile 10 of Kuching Serian Road (KSR).

The four interchanges along the busy Kuching – Serian Road is aimed at smoothening and shortening the journey along the Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak once it is completed by middle of 2021.

Samling Resources Sdn Bhd is the main contractor for this works package which has the longest stretch at 95.043km and divided into three sections i.e. Lundu Section, Bau Section and KSR Interchanges.
