Public market in Batu Kawan to be completed in 2025


Residents in Bandar Cassia, Batu Kawan will have their first-ever public market in the area soon!

Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow, who is also the Batu Kawan MP, said the project which sits on a 7.69-acre land near Taman Crescentia is divided into two phases at an estimated cost of RM69 million.

“The first phase that involves soil excavation and soil treatment works has already started on Nov 7 last year and is expected to be completed on Jan 6, 2024.

“The second phase will include the building construction and infrastructure that is expected to start in the first quarter of 2024 and be fully completed in the third quarter of 2025.

“Once completed, the public market will be able to house more than 200 traders and also equipped with a food complex, 753 parking lots, grease traps and other facilities.

“The project is under the Penang Development Corporation (PDC) but when it is fully completed, it will be handed over to Seberang Perai City Council (MBSP) as the owner.

“Thus, we hope that this construction work can run smoothly and be completed within the set timeline,” Chow said in his speech before taking part in the groundbreaking ceremony of the new public market project in Bandar Cassia, Batu Kawan today.

Also present were state Local Government, Housing, Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo, Bukit Tambun assemblyman Goh Choon Aik, MBSP mayor Datuk Azhar Arshad and PDC chief executive officer Aziz Bakar.

According to Chow, the public market project will not only benefit residents in Bandar Cassia but also nearby areas in the south Seberang Perai (SPS) district, especially in Simpang Ampat and Valdor.

“I am sure that this is the good news that is eagerly awaited by the residents here and those living nearby SPS to have a public market that is near their living place.

“And we hope when the project is fully completed, we can spur the local economy in Bandar Cassia and nearby areas in SPS,” he added.
