Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) will improve the new hawker centre at Kpg Bumbok, Batu Kitang with adequate facilities to make the place more conducive for both hawkers and customers.
The council said that the construction of the hawker centre is completed and they are now in the process of installing the lighting. It was noted that the cost of buying a transformer was holding the project behind.
Instead of moving to a new place with not guarantee of attracting customers, they preferred to stay put at the dilapidated stalls at the roadside that had been attracting customers over the years.
Aside from lighting, MPP is also looking into improving road access and providing sufficient parking to people coming to the hawker center.
Hawkers trading at the new Kampung Bumbok hawker centre are formerly from the road side wooden hawker center nearby.
