MIRI: United Peo­ple’s Party ( UPP) Pu­jut branch chair­man Bruce Chai has asked Miri City Coun­cil ( MCC) to con­sider con­sol­i­dat­ing the two mar­kets at Mors­jaya Com­mer­cial Cen­tre.

He said he re­ceived the suggestion from mem­bers of the pub­lic dur­ing the branch’s Mo­bile Ac­tion Team ( MAT) pro­gramme held recently at the new Mors­jaya mar­ket.

“The old mar­ket is lo­cated next to a petrol sta­tion in the area. Although MCC has al­ready pro­vided a new mar­ket at other side with com­plete fa­cil­i­ties,

The old mar­ket is lo­cated next to a petrol sta­tion in the area. Although MCC has al­ready pro­vided a new mar­ket at other side with com­plete fa­cil­i­ties, some traders still oc­cupy and con­duct their busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties at the old mar­ket.

some traders still oc­cupy and con­duct their busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties at the old mar­ket,” he told a press yes­ter­day.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the new mar­ket was built by the coun­cil in an ef­fort to cre­ate a more vi­brant fa­cil­ity for the com­mer­cial cen­tre, but that not many peo­ple pa­tro­n­ised the new mar­ket.

He said feed­back from the pub­lic sug­gested that traders at the old site be moved to the new mar­ket, which is spa­cious and has am­ple park­ing space.

“The old mar­ket can be­come crowded due to its small size, and there are also lim­ited park­ing ar­eas. I hope the coun­cil can look into how best to con­sol­i­date the two mar­kets in the area,” he added.
