Apparently Sibu is now not spared from flooding in the last one week. I was there on the 27th and 28th and the pictures you see now were taken yesterday, 28th morning.
Part of the road cannot be used by most traffic because of the flood. there were many other stretches of roads around Sibu which were worse. Some houses in the hardcore areas were cut off from the main town areas.
The portion is worse, yet so much money must have been put into its construction but poor construction practices on peat soil will always see subsidence over time leading to lower lying areas subject to flooding. Poor car there, luckily it managed to swim through.
When can Lanang road be made to become flood free? Yesterday, to-day and every morning for the last one week, similar episode occurred. It has been flooding in the morning and then dried out with the tide in the afternoon but back again in the next morning according to man in the picture, standing and wondering why the coffee shop is not open while the one on the opposite side does(see the next two pictures).
