Heavy rain over the last few days caused a section of the Pan Borneo highway cut off when KM77 suffered a land slip at 8pm Wednesday night.

Authorities said no casualties was reported in the incident near Kampung Semukoi, but the land slip has cut the main road heading to Sri Aman and Kuching.

Latest photos and report by NST showed about 100m stretch sank at least 3m deep.

Deputy Works Minister Datuk Yong Khoon Seng said traffic is currently diverted to the 36km Mentong/Muram estate road.
