Also known as "America Road", "Reversed Road", "Opposite Driving Road" by the locals, we drive this road on the left instead of the right, and is rightly a fairly controversial subject of contention regarding its road planning.
River Road was the name of the road that stretches from the Tua Pek Kong Temple, past the fish market, old bus station (now a roundabout), the old Miri Port Authority Building (now Arcadia Square), ending at the old shop houses of what is now known as the Harbour View Inn building.
Literally, Sungai Tujoh is translated as the Seventh River or Seventh Stream spelled in the form of Bruneian Malay language. An immigration post was built in the 1960s to control the movement of goods and people between Miri and points west in Sarawak with Brunei, at this "7th river".
Riam Road is one of the oldest roads in Miri. Originally just a dirt and stone path road, today the road is tar sealed, and connects from Miri-Bintulu Roadway intersection at King Commercial Center to Alpine Road.
Seahorse Island (not its official name) is planned to be a man-made island, in the shape of Miri's mascot - the seahorse - for the 3rd phase of the Brighton Beach's redevelopment master plan. Once completed this island will be about 800 metres off the coast from Brighton Beach, and planned to feature recreational, commercial and residential areas.
