Any updates on Temburong Bridge?

THE Temburong Bridge linking the capital and Pekan Bangar is fast on track with the BND1.6 billion project expected to finish by 2019.

The construction of the bridge reflects His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s concern for the welfare of the citizens and residents of the country.

This project will allow commuters to travel with ease avoiding four frequently congested border immigration checkpoints and shorten the travel time considerably.

With the New Year just around the corner, it would be interesting to find out more about the bridge.

I remember reading in the Bulletin regarding questions on whether a toll would be imposed and if Temburong residents would be exempted from it.

I was just wondering if there are any updates on those questions as well as matters pertaining to the bridge.

Can the authorities shed some light?
