Enhancing the infrastructure so that people and goods can be transported quickly and easily is vital for development throughout Sarawak. With further improvements to its fine deep water ports, the new Mukah Airport and the major expansion and upgrading of the Trans Borneo highway, the SCORE area is rapidly improving its long distance transport links.
But there is also a lot of less spectacular work going on to improve road connections within the region. The building of the 73km road up to the Baleh Dam hydropower construction site, across hilly and difficult terrain, is just one of many projects that are currently under way. Several phases have already been completed, including the bridge that will take the road across the Baleh River at Nanga Mujung.
