KUCHING: Located smack in the city centre, Satok constituency is progressing well with various development projects already completed while others are going on.
Among them are Hikmah Exchange, Sungai Bintangor Bridge and Sarawak Museum complex, Pasar Seni Satok in Jalan Haji Taha, and Medan Niaga N8-KOMBES at Sarawak Youth and Sports Complex.
Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg is the state assemblyman for Satok since 1981.

There are various types of development in Satok such as Pasar Seni Satok and Medan Niaga Belia for hawkers to sell their goods. I am confident that the area can eventually become an e-tourism attraction as well as a haven for foodies and shoppers.

I have noticed that Satok now has a new drainage system and new pavements. I appreciate the ‘red speed lines’ to warn drivers to slow down as they come down from Satok Bridge. Still I hope that all construction projects could be completed as soon as possible so that the area would not be messy.
Debby Nurul Aini, Businesswoman
A lot has been done to develop Satok such as upgrading of walkways along the village roads, Kuching Waterfront, street lamps, Pasar Seni Satok and Dewan Komuniti Kampung Bandarsah which will become a recreational place for people to learn art. I really hope that Satok would become an exemplary constituency in terms of development.
Sarinah Zainudin, Private sector worker
Development in Satok has opened up opportunities for people to venture into business and create a bustling environment which makes the place attractive. Despite having a number of Malay villages, Satok is urban in character having become an economic centre with various socio-economic facilities and amenities.
