In 1990, Bintulu had its biggest roundabout at KM 5, Bintulu- Miri Road. The Roundabout was plainly called Roundabout 3. At a corner of the roundabout was located JKR's temporary stock pile area for road and infrastructure construction materials. An indoor badminton stadium was also built at one end of the state land on which the two facilities were built.
Looking at the place today, the changes is beyond recognition. That site has been taken up by commercial buildings development undertaken by the private sector.
As at the point of writing the commercial shophouses are ready for occupation.
As Bintulu moved into its Millenial Growth Era ( i.e. after its last fourth boom) and starting in 2016, the town remains the brightest star in its capacity as Sarawak's prime example of rapid physical development, socio-economic progress, urban population growth and proper town planning.
