Sungai Lembing Off The Beaten Path

  • DaHongHua's Profile Photo

    by DaHongHua Written Jun 18, 2013

    The demolish project strated from 08 November 2012, with no target completion date, that is what I read from a sign board stand at the site. The site is situated ahead of you if you drive straight from Sungai Lembing town into a muddy road, I was not blocked by anyone, I first thought I have entered to a historical park and it was indeed when I saw the signboard, it is an old tin factory once called Phonix Bamboo. Someone from the authority indeed has to preserve this old factory at least some part of it from being dismantle. As what I can see at the site, a few large stoves and chimneies are still in their good shape. Once, this is the factory site of Phonix Bamboo Factory and the PCCL Big Engin Room.
