THE Lebuh 5 behind the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh will become a one-way road effective today.
Ipoh City Council corporate affairs principal assistant director Normala Latiff said motorists who wished to use the road would need to enter from Jalan Raja Ashman, near the Muhibbudin Shah Mosque.
The junction near the Ipoh Nursing College would no longer be accessible to motorists who want to drive to the hospital.
The new ruling was passed during the city council’s traffic committee meeting on Friday.
On another matter, Normala said the city council has handed over full management of the Ramadan Bazaar to the organisers of such bazaars which include residents associations, mosques and small trader groups.
This, she said, was to ease the management and operations control of the respective bazaars.
“Interested traders will need to pay RM100 for a trading spot without canopy.
“For spots with canopies, the payment would depend on the organiser,” she said.
“Applicants for trading spots at the bazaars are also advised to take anti-typhoid jabs and to attend a basic food handling course,” she added.
There are 10 areas that would be holding the bazaars including Ipoh Jaya (50 spots), Taman Maju Rapat (20), Taman SPPK (100), Bercham (15), Bandar Baru Putra (36), Taman Temara/Taman Sri Sayang (30), Tambun (16), Tasek (60), Tanjung Rambutan (85) and Taman Cempaka (70).
Anti-typhoid jab for citizens is RM35 and RM60 for foreigners.
The jab is a necessity for all traders and operators involved in food preparation.
