MIRI: Facilities at a popular public park here, Taman Bulatan, will be upgraded with RM1 million in funds under the Rural Transformation Project (RTP).
Assistant Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Datuk Sebastian Ting said the funds had already been approved but works were halted due to the Movement Control Order (MCO).
“We will start the project soonest because the budget is already there,” Ting told the press during a visit to the park yesterday.
Mayor of Miri City Council Adam Yii and several councillors were also present.
According to Ting, the project would involve improving facilities such as lightings, jogging track and also extension of the park to Krokop roundabout.
He said the city council had submitted a plan for the extension to the Land and Survey Department.
Taman Bulatan, about 5km from the city centre and not far from Desa Seri residential area, is popular with joggers every morning and evening.
Being strategically located, it is the choice for many social gatherings organised by the public and NGOs.
