KOTA KINABALU: Sabah's first twin tunnel, which cuts through several hills, will be officially opened to road users this Saturday. The 600 metre Sepanggar Tunnel is a dual carriageway which shortens the travel distance between Sepanggar port and the state capital. Musa's speech was delivered by Deputy Chief Minister cum State Infrastructure Development Minister Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan. The establishment of the tunnel shaves about six kilometres or 15 minutes’ travel time off the current route of Jalan Teluk Sepanggar. He said the building of tunnels was in line with the road construction development, which looks into minimising maintenance cost.
