Three roads leading to Kuching Waterfront will be closed to traffic from tomorrow to Sunday in conjunction with the upcoming Sarawak Regatta 2013.

Deputy Kuching Resident Zamahari Saibi announced yesterday during a briefing that the affected roads are Jalan Market/Jalan Gambier/Jalan Power, Jalan Khoo Hun Yeang (along Central Police Station) and Main Bazaar/ Wayang Street.

In addition to the road closure, traffic flow in four other roads in the area will be controlled by traffic police to avoid congestion and illegal parking during the three days.

He thus advised the public to use Jalan P. Ramlee and Jalan Padungan as alternative routes, while spectators going to the event are asked to park their vehicles at Saujana Building, Menara Pelita, Reservoir Park, Civic Centre, The Hills, Medan Kereta, Riverside Shopping Complex or Plaza Merdeka.

Only VVIPs, guests and event workers holding passes will be allowed to enter the Main Bazaar and exit at Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg.
