Published on: Saturday, May 25, 2019

Tuaran: Construction of the 60km Telipok-Kiulu-Randagong road is 90.68 per cent done and is scheduled to be fully completed by November 2019. 

Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Mohd Harun said the project, which began in 2016, was supposed to be completed in March this year but unforeseen problems, including unfavourable weather conditions, caused delays. 

“This RM288 million project is running smoothly and the delays have not caused any increase in the costs. One of the three bridges are complete while construction of the other two is in progress,” she told reporters after a visit to the project site. 

The Telipok-Kiulu-Rondoggung route is another alternative for those travelling from Kota Kinabalu to Ranau. 

“This route will involve three districts - Kota Kinabalu, Tuaran and Ranau - with 26 villages and eight schools, including a secondary school, located along it,” said Rina. 

“Once completed, the road will benefit villagers besides saving about 30 minutes of travel time from Kota Kinabalu to Ranau compared to the old route. 

“It will benefit some 20,000 residents who live along the route and with good connectivity, villagers can market their produce much quicker to nearby towns,” she added.
