Council chief seeks funds to improve facilities

Date:

PADAWAN: Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) Chairman Lo Khere Chiang said facilities in tourist areas here should be improved to provide more comfortable access to visitors.

“Coming into the Kampung Git area, the road is very narrow,” he said, adding, “I hope that the access to Kampung Annah Rais, Temurang, Danu and other villages could be improved as well.”

He hoped Minister Datuk Seri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah will consider allocating funds to improve these tourism locations.

Lo, who is also Batu Kitang assemblyman made this remark at the closing of the Padawan Raft Safari 2022 at Dewan Serbaguna Kampung Git, today.

He noted that there were limited parking spaces and hoped to get allocations to improve the parking areas and also widen the road within the Kampung Git area.

Lo also hoped to have a viewing platform built so that visitors could come and enjoy the programme, considering the rafting and kayaking event is held annually and expected to bring in more visitors.

This year marked its 18th edition and saw the participation of about 83 raft teams and 17 kayak teams after a two-year pause.
