Waterfront Boardwalk in Kota Kinabalu ready for New Year

Kota Kinabalu: The City Hall will hold a New Year's eve bash and at the same time celebrate the official opening of the new Dataran Bandaraya (City Square) at the Waterfront Boardwalk in Anjung Senja here.

Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister, Datuk Masidi Manjun said he was informed that works at the Anjung Senja Boardwalk Phase 1a were now 40 per cent complete and City Hall and developer, Waterfront Urban Development Sdn Bhd are expecting it would be completed on time.

Met after inspecting the project site and briefing by Mayor Datuk Iliyas Ibrahim and Waterfront Urban Development Executive Director, Johnson Koh, Masidi said he was satisfied with the progress of the development.

He said the planned New Year's eve celebration at the park on Dec 31 is expected to be officiated by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

Masidi was also informed that among the features at the City Square are a 7m tall and 1m diameter totem pole to be known as "Nantapuan" or meeting place and adorned with Murut motifs.

The Square itself is 40m X 28m that is being built on the inner side of the 500m Boardwalk (from the Wawasan Plaza roundabout in Anjung Senja).

Iliyas said they were proud because the name of the square was proposed by Chief Minister himself.

It was designed to be a public multi-purpose space and accommodate events or ceremonies as well as for parking.
