The Public Works Department (JKR), Ministry of Development announced the partial closure at Old Airport, Berakas near Simpang 24 starting yesterday until completion of repair works.
The partial closure is necessary to allow for the repair of an underground sewerage pipe two metres deep. Meanwhile, parts of Jalan Melayan heading to Kampong Melayan longhouse in Mukim Labi, Belait District, were damaged by recent landslides. In response, JKR has installed road signs and blinkers along the affected areas and repair works will be carried out as soon as possible.
The department urged road users to be cautious and abide by the road signs and speed limit, especially in passing the affected areas at night or during heavy downpours to avoid unwanted incidents.
