Project description The upgrading of this Interchange delivers to the motorist a smooth driving experience through the City of Miri. It is one of a series of several intersections on the way to the Northern end of Miri Division and would similarly provide good long distance journeys when the other junctions are upgraded.

  • 2-lane Flyover Bridge for the Airport to Pujut direction
  • Approach embankments including retaining structures
  • Site clearing and earthworks
  • Slip Road and other pavement works
