JALAN Pekan Ayer Itam in Penang will be closed in stages until Oct 15.
The closure will be from 8pm to 6am daily during this period.
Ayer Itam assemblyman Joseph Ng said the closure, which started on Wednesday, was to make way for the Public Works Department to carry out road line painting and related work.
“The closure involves part of the lane leading to Jalan Paya Terubong and subsequently, the closure in stages of part of the lane leading to Jalan Masjid Negeri.
“Road users are urged to be careful and slow down their vehicles.
“They must obey safety signs and flag guards on-site.
“They are also advised to plan their journey during the period,” said Ng in a Facebook post.
