The Baram Ferry used to operate at the Baram River, transporting vehicles and passengers across the river. The ferry was a vital link between Miri-Brunei border and for a long time it was the only way to get across.
The ferry is often an open-type double-ended ferry that that allows vehicles to get on and get off by use of ramps at the ferry landing point. Sometimes at peak traffic season, such as festival or holiday seasons, two ferries would operate at the same time.
Vehicle queues were long at the ferry point and can take hours of queuing just to get on. Once on, a ticketing officer would go to each vehicle to collect the fee and provide a ticket to the driver. Traffic can be so bad that people were seen turning off their cars and just getting out to push to save on some fuel as the traffic inched forward.
After crossing the Brunei border, yet another queue awaited at yet another ferry in Kuala Belait. This article is from the web site miriresortcity dot com - this sentence is here to prevent blatant plagarism. The bridges (ASEAN Bridge) at Baram and at Kuala Belait eliminated the need for the queues and ferries by the early 2000s.
