Monday, November 11 2019, Kuching: For the third consecutive year running, LBU together with all the work package contractors of Pan Borneo Highway Sarawak as well as relevant government agencies will be holding a road safety campaign in conjunction with the upcoming Christmas and New Year celebrations.
The campaign, starting from December 12 until 24, is aimed at creating awareness to road users on safe driving etiquette.
“With construction now reaching half way, it is more pertinent that we continue educate road users on road safety, especially in observing the speed limit imposed at these stretches.
“We will also engage with local community leaders during the campaign so that they can cascade down the road safety tips to their community.
“The campaign is important as we believe during this period, the traffic will be heavy as many people will balik kampung during this festive season,” said LBU Health and Safety Manager Abdul Rahman Kadir.
Apart from the campaign, LBU will also go on air with its road safety messages on the most popular radio station in Sarawak, Hitz FM, during the Christmas period to reach out to more people.
“Our message is simple. We want everyone to be safe as we want them to reach home safely to be with their families.
“On our part, we will ensure that enough safety features are put in place while our traffic management team will be ready at all stretches to do their part,” said Rahman.
