Bandar Seri Begawan - The Public Works Department (PWD), through the Department of Roads, informs road users that part of the completed road along Jalan Residency will be opened at 9am today.
The opening of the road is to allow for upgrading works to be carried out on the old Jalan Residency route - from Taman Rekreasi Hutan Bukit Subok up to Balai Bomba Sungai Lampai. The upgrade is for the final scope of work for the widening ofJalan Residency, which is expected to be completed by the end of March.
The existing two lanes along Jalan Residency will be temporarily closed off, and the diversion will be opened for road users at the newly completed Jalan Residency stretch.
