Big plans to improve infrastructure in Ipoh, says Nga – Free Malaysia Today

IPOH: A multi-storey car park and a public market are among the long-term development projects planned to improve infrastructure around Ipoh, says the local government development minister Nga Kor Ming.
Nga said during his visit to the Ipoh Old Town area and the Kepayang state constituency, he found that the locals were seeking changes.
He said he had instructed the Ipoh mayor, Rumaizi Baharin, to submit a plan for the development of a multi-storey car park in Ipoh Old Town to overcome the problem of congestion that has plagued tourists and local residents for a long time.
“Next year, my ministry will also upgrade and repair the Ipoh Central Market, where the condition is deemed to be unsatisfactory. I found many problems such as poor cleanliness, blown lights and leaking roofs that need attention,” he said.
Nga, who is also Kepayang state assemblyman, was speaking during a press conference in conjunction with the inauguration of the constituency’s service centre here today.
He said he also held a discussion with Rumaizi regarding the Waller Court flats here – among the oldest in Malaysia – which are in a poor shape and require renovations.
“The Ipoh City Council will submit a redevelopment plan for this area so that it becomes a landmark which can then be protected,” he said.
In the meantime, a project to reconstruct Pinji Market, which was built in 1959, will be resumed after it was cancelled by the previous government.
“After visiting and seeing the dilapidated condition, I agreed for a new, modern market to be built in Pasir Pinji. I hope it can be completed by 2025 or 2026,” he said.
