SIBU: Two-decade-old food court Taman Selera Muhibbah in Jalan Pedada will undergo a major renovation to make it disabled-friendly.

The upgrade will also see a baby care room added to the food court.

Market and petty traders committee chairman Albert Tiang said tender for the renovation project would be called next month.

“The award for the contract will be done in March and work is expected to begin in April.

“It is expected to be completed end of December this year, ” he said.

Tiang said this time, the food court would have facilities for people with disabilities such as parking space for their vehicles.

There will also be a special room for mothers to change the diapers of their babies.

“We need to provide this facility for young parents and that is why we came up with this special room, ” he said.

On the number of stalls after the renovation work, he said it would remain at 48.

Jalan Pedada’s Taman Selera Muhibah is a popular place for families and friends to grab a bite.

It is also a great place to socialise over good food and drinks.

When people in Sibu mention Taman Selera Muhibbah, they talk about not only the delicious, value-for-money meals there but also the unique dining experience in a casual and comfortable ambience.

Meanwhile, Tiang said the council would introduce a new layout plan for its night market in order to make the business activity more vibrant.

Fourteen new stalls will be added to the existing 178.

“These new stalls are open mainly to young entrepreneurs aged between 18 and 40 years old.

“The stalls will have new concepts or ideas such as special food or drink, services for manicure and temporary tattoos, ” he said.

Tiang said those interested in running the new stalls could obtain the application form at a Urban Transformation Centre (UTC).
