‘Smoother Flow Expected Once Works On Sg Tujoh CIQ Done’

MIRI: The flow of visitors from Brunei and beyond passing the Sungai Tujoh Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) border checkpoint is expected to be smoother and speedier with the completion of the RM1.5-million upgrading and improvement works on the complex.

According to Assistant Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Datuk Lee Kim Shin, the project package includes the widening of the road from Brunei border to the complex, installation of outdoor LED signboards, and works on the drainage.

You can see now the traffic flow has improved, thanks to the widened road that leads to the clearance counters. Now two cars can go through (clearance) at one time. So far, I have received no complaints regarding congestion, Lee told reporters during a site inspection of the Sungai Tujoh CIQ yesterday.

Lee said the installation of LED signboard should reach completion around March.

The signboards are also going to be installed at both the Immigration and Customs clearance counters and booths. Currently, there are six counters to clear the incoming and outgoing vehicles at the complex. If necessary, counters will be opened up at either side, particularly during peak seasons, he added.
