Kuching Waterfront much safer now

KUCHING: Security measures have been stepped up at the Kuching Waterfront to ensure the safety and well-being of visitors.

Sarawak Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) deputy general manager Wan Lizozman Wan Omar said that more security guards had been deployed since the beginning of this year to patrol the area and prevent untoward incidents.

“We have doubled the number of guards at any one time from five to 10 and they will patrol round the clock.

“We are working closely with the police, including the tourist police stationed at the Waterfront, and Kuching North City Hall to ensure that safety is taken care of,” he told reporters at the launch of the Waterfront’s calendar of events here.

The Waterfront, managed by SEDC Sarawak, is among the top tourist attractions in the city.

He said the RM9mil extension from Beijing Restaurant to Grand Margherita Hotel would comprise a walkway and other facilities.
