Nanga Machan bridge piling completed

Bored piling works for a 130-metre bridge in Nanga Machan, in the Kanowit District, has been completed.

The reinforced concrete bridge will be connected to the 9.5km Ulu Machan road, which is being upgraded to a two-lane R1 standard road.

With the fabrication of reinforcement cages for I-Girders and concreting for the bridge near completion, construction of the embankment slab will begin next month.

Meanwhile, premix laying works for the road is expected to commence within a week.

Construction for both the road and the bridge is expected to be completed by year’s end.

The projects are implemented by the Upper Rajang Development Agency (URDA), under RECODA.
