Applause for roof extension

Published: Fri, 03 Aug 2012

SERI KEMBANGAN: Hawkers and traders operating in the Pasar Rakyat here will no longer have to put up with the sun and rain after extension works on the market’s roof were completed.

Teng appreciates the extension as it prevents disruptions to her business.

The extensions cost RM50,000 in state funds and were completed on July 28.

Liang Yu Chuan, a pancake seller, said he was very satisfied with the extensions as it minimises business disruptions due to weather.

“I had to stand under the sun and the weather can get so hot, and then when it rains I have to move everything inside (the market),” said the 40-year-old hawker.

He commended the work, saying the state and local lawmakers were very attentive to the people’s needs.

A homemade cake seller is also thankful for the extensions, saying she no longer had to worry about the weather.

“I used to worry when it rained, it affected business but now we can operate normally even when it rains,” said Teng Yoon Ren, 72.

When it rains heavily, even the giant umbrella she prepares does not help as it gets unstable when up against strong winds.

Seri Kembangan state lawmaker Ean Yong Hian Wah said the state had also allocated RM30,000 to furnish the market with additional fans and lights.

The internal drainage system will also be repaired as it often clogs up and stinks.
