Maintain facilities at Wangsa Maju morning market, DBKL urged

Lai (right) talking to a regular market-goer about the damaged seats and facilities at Section 2 morning market in Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur.

TRADERS and customers at the Section 2 morning market in Wangsa Maju are urging Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to maintain the facilities in the market.

Following its reopening on Oct 18 under Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan (NRP), tables and seats at the market were found to be damaged or broken.

A regular to the market, who wanted to be known only as Tang, said the market was serving people from the surrounding neighbourhoods.

“Residents nearby do their marketing here and visit the food stalls.

“Some of the seats are also missing and it has become an inconvenience to the those who may want to rest or have some food after buying their daily necessities,” he said.

Khor Siew Mei, 41, who also frequents the market, said the seats and tables had been damaged or broken for some time.

“Now that dine-in is allowed, I hope DBKL will fix the broken chairs and seats for the convenience of market-goers.”

Wangsa Maju MP Datin Paduka Dr Tan Yee Kew’s special assistant Andre Lai said complaints had been channelled to the DBKL Wangsa Maju branch as well as its Licensing and Business Develop-ment Department.

“Some of the seats at the market’s food court were missing even before the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Since the morning market do not accept dine-in customers during the movement control order, the problem was not seen as a priority for City Hall as it was working hard to control the spread of the virus.

“DBKL has not made improvements to the infrastructure and other facilities at Section 2, Wangsa Maju, so it is high time they look into this matter,” Lai added.
