Road closure along Muara-Tutong Highway, water disruption due to installations

A section of the Muara-Tutong Highway from KM32.9 near Kampong Jerudong (Muara-bound) will be temporarily closed from today until March 31 from 8am to 5.30pm.

According to a Public Works Department (JKR) statement, the closure is to allow the Unified National Networks (UNN) to conduct monopole dismantling works and collection of dismantled items.

Road users are advised to exercise caution in the area by adhering to the speed limit and to follow road signs.

Meanwhile, the agency said installations works on circuit breakers at the Highlift Station Stages 4 & 5 at the Bukit Barun Water Treatment Plant will be carried out tomorrow at 2pm.

The work will take a maximum of four hours to complete and will result in a low supply of clean water, especially at high-lying areas. The areas that will be affected include Kampong Batong, Kampong Masin, RPN Perpindahan Lugu, Jalan Pasir Berakas, RPN Lambak Kanan, Mukim Lumapas, a part of Mukim Pengkalan Batu, Kampong Subok, Kampong Belimbing and its vicinity.

The JKR assured that every precautionary measure is being taken to overcome the issue including returning the water supply to normal level as soon as possible.
