Based on the road network planning for Kanowit-Song-Kapit, the actual distance is about 100.9km. The only remaining link is the construction of Ngemah-Temalat Road, Section B Pakej 1(as shown in plan) which covers a total length of 9.6km of R3 standard road with 100m span bridge at Sungai Sebuloh.
The physical progress is 39.73% at the moment and is scheduled to be completed in August 2020. By then, the whole road network to Kapit will be connected.
At the moment, the road is only accessible from Kanowit to Ngemah. The ongoing 9.6km Ngemah-Temalat link is not ready to be opened for traffic as the road construction is still almost halfway and unsafe to be used by the public. Once completed, this road will then be connected to the completed tar sealed road of Jalan Song/Sipang/SK Temalat and thus, to Kapit.
The completion of this road shall give a huge positive impact to the people not only in Kapit but also to the people of Song, Kanowit and most importantly to the people of Sarawak, in terms of development and economy.
