Jalan Oil Well No.1 got itself a fresh paint this week. But it is short of proper side walk and street lightings. Despite being highlighted years back and last year (to Andy Chia). Hopefully Majlis Bandaraya Miri can enlighten us on what are the big problem with construction of a side walk and installation of street lightings. The road is used to patronage the Science Museum and the Grand Old Lady, anyway. Any comment, YB Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui and Dato Seb Ting? — with Keith Chin and Lawrence Kong.
Responses from City Council and our leaders in Miri
From Dato Sebastian Ting: Morning James. Thank you for your info..I agree that a foot path and proper lighting should be provided, as per your suggestion.. I will inform and discuss with the relevant authorities.. Rgds and have a great day… Seb.
We will keep our readers informed of the progress on this request made via the social media channels.
Election after election, mayor after mayor, but this road leading to the Petroleum Musuem in Miri is still in its dark age.
With cheap natural gas to fuel up our power plant in Pujut, Miri is able to help Bintulu powered the whole Sarawak, and yet it can’t light up the road to its rich history of natural resources.
We are here to promote Miri as a resort city, a place tourist can visit to learn and understand the history of the petroleum industry in Malaysia, and we certainly need to put the Grand Old Lady a lighted path to places you should visit while in Miri.
To Petronas and Shell Malaysia, the initial million contributed to the museum is not forever. The City Council still needs you to help them maintain it. Look at the paint and the building itself – it sure need new coat and a ‘bath’.
The Grand Old Lady says, “Please light up my life!”
