Niah NP trails closed temporarily for repair works

MIRI: The Madu and Bukit Kasut trails at Niah National Park and the trail to Rh. Panjang Patrick Libau are temporary closed until further notice.

Sarawak Forestry Corporation Sdn Bhd (SFCSB) made the announced last Friday, saying the closure takes immediate effect.

“Due to heavy rain in the area during the past several days, a nearby river had overflowed and flooded the trails.

However, the main trail remains open for visitors,” it said in a press statement.

All the trails will be re-opened after clearing and repair works had been completed and the trails are deemed safe for the public.

SFCSB also expressed regret for any inconvenience caused as a result of this temporary closure.

Members of the public may contact Niah National Park Office at 085-737454/450 or Miri National Park Booking Office at 085-434184/435384 or follow their website at www.sarawakforestry.com or Facebook’s page @sarawakforestry for further inquiries and clarifications.
