KUCHING: The old Batu Kawah bazaar and its immediate surrounding are set for more development with a waterfront project already in the pipeline.

Batu Kawah assemblyman Tan Joo Phoi announced yesterday that the RM8-million project was approved last June by the National Landscape Department.

He said the project was in the Batu Kawah development master plan.

“The waterfront will definitely change the look of Batu Kawah, and it will be as beautiful as

Kuching Waterfront,” he said when officiating at a general meeting of Batu Kawah Chung Hua Association in the bazaar’s community hall, yesterday.

Tan, who is also chairman of Padawan Municipal Council (PMC) added that he would fly to Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday to meet with Deputy Minister of Housing and Local Government Datuk Robert Lau, to lobby for fund.

He would also meet with the director of National Landscape Department pertaining to the project.

He said that although the implementation of the project would involve many organisations like Land and Survey Department, Sarawak Rivers Board (SRB) and Public Works Department (JKR), he hoped that it could start within this year.

Pertaining to public security, Tan urged the people in Batu Kawah area to form a neighbourhood watch committee in view of the increasing number of crimes like house-breaking in the area.

He also advised the local people to work closely with the People’s Vigilante Corps (Rela) and the police to combat criminal activities.

They have tambangs in Batu Kawah? I'm just secretly hoping that this would become a ferry terminal so you can catch a ferry or river boat from the Waterfront to Batu Kawah.

the artist impression had some bad impression. the river water shouldn't be blue. it should be muddy brownish yellowish natural color.

that is the sad thing about our rivers. brownish. oh well at least it can be considered clean and still home to our beloved crocodiles.

Mocha, if they do have a tambang, that might be an addition to the tourism industry. but there isn't anything to see in between of the 2 tambang. aha

My sis is a Manager of MJC Batu Kawah. She is specialising on Marketing and Sales of property. She should know that.

Oh well, that's not true. Every place must get equal opportunity of development. You should be able to see that while 4th Mile is developing, 7th Mile/Sentosa is also developing. 3rd Mile has achieved the success of development and it is much more beautiful than it ever was.
