KUCHING, 26 March – NAIM Gamuda, with determination, embraces the challenge to excel in completing the Batang Lupar No. 2 Cable-Stayed Bridge project, elevating Sarawak’s infrastructure landscape. Positioned to be Malaysia’s tallest at 145.5 meters, this ambitious RM 223.6 million endeavor not only enhances connectivity but also promises to be a landmark for Sri Aman. Integral to the Coastal and Second Trunk Road Project led by the State Government of Sarawak, this initiative signifies a significant step forward.

In a recent site visit on March 15, Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah, accompanied by officials from JKR Sarawak, the Sri Aman Development Authority (SADA), local assemblymen, and various stakeholders, ceremoniously installed the first stay cable. Notably, the main contractor, NAIM Gamuda JV (NAGA) Sdn Bhd stood prominently among the collaborators. Progress has been commendable, with the project currently 14 days ahead of schedule at 42.65% completion.

The Deputy Premier’s aspiration for completion by June 2025, envisioning it as a gift for the Gawai Festival, underscores the significance of this project for Sri Aman and Betong communities. NAGA has committed to meeting this timeline with unwavering dedication.

“The Batang Lupar No. 2 Cable-Stayed Bridge will stand as a symbol of pride for Sri Aman. NAGA is steadfast in our commitment to realizing the Deputy Premier’s vision,” affirmed Mr. Faisal Zaidin, Director alongside Mr. Deric Kua, Project Director at NAIM Gamuda JV (NAGA) Sdn Bhd.

Mr. Faisal emphasized the importance of NAIM’s partnership with Gamuda Berhad, highlighting the significant infrastructure enhancements they’ve collectively brought to Sri Aman. This bridge, coupled with the 27.82km highway forming part of the Second Trunk Road, aims to enhance traffic flow between Sri Aman, Betong, and beyond, thereby enriching Sarawak’s socio-economic fabric.

The Coastal and Second Trunk Road Project, championed by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Ports Development (MIPD) and executed by JKR Sarawak, underscores Sarawak’s commitment to socio-economic transformation and regional connectivity.
