By Puvaneswary Devindran

KUCHING: The transformation of the former wet market at Gambier Street into an esplanade, an extension of the existing waterfront, will begin this month.

Kuching City North Commission Datuk Bandar Mohamad Atei Abang Medaan said the tender for the RM7 million beautification project has already been given out.

“Hopefully (it will be) completed by the end of the year. The beautification process is quite slow, but what we need to put up first are the facilities,” he told reporters here yesterday.

Atei said the demolition of the vacant building alongside the banks of the Sarawak river would be carried out soon, but assured that no shops on the other side of Gambier Street would be affected.
