Potential hazard


This power transformer sub-station in central Long Lama Bazaar seems so uncomfortably close to the busy and narrow road leading to the only petrol station in this small town and through Kampung Kayan. As it stands precariously on the edge of Baram River, which risks facing erosion, the authorities should consider relocating the facility to a more suitable site. Such exercise would also help widen the road and thus, provide more parking spaces in accommodating the growing number of vehicles passing Long Lama to and from the interior destinations as well as Miri city.
