Grand Old Lady is in Neglect

Submitted by eyeonmiri on Fri, 2014-03-14 11:41. :: Eyes on Miri | News & Events | Special interests | Tourism

According to a recent news article the area at Grand Old Lady at Canada Hill, a monument and landmark to Miri's First Oil Well, needed a facelift to save it from further deterioration due to neglect.

The site had been neglected so much that weeds had overgrown and some facilities are damaged or vandalized. Lighting are damaged or missing, information boards are barren and paintwork has peeled. More worrying, there is no a single officer to be found to guide tourists, if there are any left.

The Grand Old Lady represents the long history of oil production in Miri, which is also declared a protected historical site by the government. The poor upkeep and resulting neglect projects a negative image to Miri as a "Resort City" and will affect tourism
