A ROW of stalls at Lorong Kerja Ayer Lama, Ampang that have been operating for more than 20 years was torn down by the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) on Tuesday (Feb 7).

In a statement, MPAJ stated that it had removed the nine stall structures as the traders were relocated to a new food court facility nearby.

“The site of the old stalls will be turned into a parking facility for visitors to the commercial area and food court.

“The operators were given three notices since last year to ensure they had adequate time to prepare to move to the new facility,” said MPAJ’s Public Relations and Secretariat Division.

StarMetro had recently reported that nine traders were left scrambling to remove their belongings after MPAJ enforcement officers sealed off their premises, leaving them with only two days to move out.

The new Laman Selera MPAJ @ Ampang Jaya food court, located about 200m away from the current location, was built along with an anaerobic digestion (AD) plant adjacent to the site.
