|The Kidurong highway road in August, 1990.|
The road would serve as a main link from Bintulu town centre to Kidurong industrial zone, home to the major industrial projects which help propelled Bintulu into a series of economic booms starting in 1979. Note the planting of easy or little maintenance and colourful shrubs at the central median. The main shrubs planted for their colourful bracts are the Bouganvillea and Mussaenda species.

Note the planting of Tabebuia rosea trees at the central median which was done in the mid 1990's. The fully matured huge Angsana trees (Pterocarpus indicus) remains a unique character of Bintulu roadside landscaping which started in a big way in 1980's and continues to present day.
