The road linking Telok Melano, once only accessible by boat, was jointly, officially opened today by Works Minister Baru Bian and Sarawak Chief Minister Abang Johari.

This new road, total length approximately 33-km from Sematan, is the first of the 11 packages of Pan-Borneo Highway completed, thus far. Baru Bian, expressed confident, the works on the other 10 packages will be completed as schedule in 2021.

Telok Melano is Sarawak's westernmost village and this new road will impact the life of some 8,000 Sarawakians living in the Lundu and Sematan regions. A drive from Kuching to Sematan is about two hours - an additional 40 minutes to Telok Melano - a leisurely drive that is. Don't press your gas too much - speed limit is 90-km.

Bintulu to Telok Melano is over 700km. There is not much accommodation at Telok Melano, but at nearby town, Sematan there are budget inns and homestay.
