Sibu to Tanjong Manis road almost ready 詩巫丹章馬尼路已通車,未完工

巴旺阿山,林子明路接到丹章馬尼路.
the road leading from Sibu to Tanjong Manis is almost ready, if not for the only bridge, which is yet to finish for another half a year, I suppose. sign boards are there, saying "No Entry", and then "enter at your own risk". why?
這座橋才完成70%吧?未完工,但是已容許車輛白天使用.
大橋已成形,但未完工.
道路,橋樑未完成,本來不可通行,卻又讓甘榜人使用.唯一的辦法,后果自負!!
大橋橋身還是這個樣子.使用這座橋,真要自己小心了.
橋中間的隙縫,路過也要注意.
又說禁止進入,又說進入后果自負. 怎麼搞的...

這一季的榴槤來量不多,價錢特貴.剛剛好又在華人年過後才上市,更少人問津.看來這次真要看看榴槤就好了,吞吞口水也一樣.拿這張相片來”望梅止渴”吧...
