MBPJ: Limited gates open at Old Town market for crowd control

For many months, this gate facing Jalan Othman 4/40 served as the only entry/exit to the market, forcing customers to take a longer route and delivery trucks to wait longer.

PETALING Jaya City Council (MBPJ) only allows selected gates at Pasar Besar Jalan Othman to be opened as part of crowd control measures and to ensure compliance with Covid-19 standard operating procedures.

“MBPJ assessed the market before deciding what time and which gates should be opened, ” said an MBPJ spokesperson.
