Tourist facilities are being planned at the Cowl Fest venue

Oya: Various facilities will be constructed at the Oyakauru Festival site to further increase the tourism value of the area.

Women, Early Childhood and Community Welfare and Development Minister Datuk Seri Fatima Abdullah said one of the ongoing projects is coastal erosion in Kampung Kuala Hilir Oya, which is being implemented under the Rajang Delta Development Authority (RADDA). He said it is an extension of the prevention project.

“Components of the project include the construction of a 230-metre-long Armor Rock seawall structure and a 300-metre-long footpath extension.

“Additionally, there are plans to construct a pier for fishing boats to dock and install bench lights. The estimated cost is about RM4 million,” she said.

She said this at the opening ceremony of Oya Kaur Festival 2024 to be held here today (April 21).
Head of State Tun Pehin Sri Dr. Wan Junaidi Tuanku Ja’afar moderated the event. He was accompanied by his wife, Toh Puan Fauzia Mohd Sanusi.

Fatima, who is also a Da Lat city councilor, said the existing facilities here need to be strengthened to ensure that visitors to the cawl venue do not just come for the cawl festival.

“So we propose to build a seafood restaurant similar to the one in Malacca.

“In addition, we will also build a permanent covered main stage and a multi-purpose hall for things like children’s activities and departmental team-building programs,” she said.

He added that a complete trade venue with various facilities will also be provided, including a wedding pool, landscaping, toilets and a replica of the Teva Tuanku well, which will cost RM4 million.

“A total of RM1.2 million will be needed to build Surau for worship facilities in this area,” she said.

Regarding the extension of the Kampung Kuala Hilir Oya coastal erosion control project, Fatima said the project plays an important role for the residents of the village and surrounding area.

“Thanks to this fortification, Kuala Hilil Oya Beach remains wide and debris-free,” she added.
