Pasar Utama to be upgraded to 3-star facility

BINTULU: Pasar Utama Bintulu will be upgraded to a three-star market in line with a drastic development in the town’s central business district, says Bintulu Development Authority general manager Mohidin Ishak.

The market is one of facilities in downtown Bintulu to be upgraded, and once all these are completed, that part of the town would become a vibrant business centre, in keeping with city-status once it achieved.

The present three-kilometre stretch of the Bintulu Promenade, Mohidin said, which is smack in the town centre, would be a boon to business activities and a must-see and must-visit place for many years to come.

“The downtown are will be expanded and enhanced according to the town’s masterplan and also in line with the vision to turn this town into a city in a not-too-distant future,” said Mohidin.

The BDA, Mohidin said, would continue to assist the state government in implementing the various projects in Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).

The BDA, he added, was ready to coordinate the implementation of a proposed new township in Samalaju if the state government required their assistance.

“At the moment we are assisting in the development of Similajau Industrial Park by providing the infrastructures and other related facilities for the investors,” he said.

Mohidin also said they would bid for more funds in the Tenth Malaysia Plan in order to build more facilities and amenities for the people here.

“One of such facilities is a market cum bus terminal at Parkcity Commercial Centre, which is about 85 per cent completed. It would be operational by April,” he added.
