The long wait for a more conducive shopping ambience for market-goers in Seberang Jaya, Penang, will be finally over when the new Seberang Jaya Market and Hawker Centre opens to the public in August next year.

Construction of the RM19.5mil building on a 5.05ha land in Jalan Tenggiri began in 2019.

The project, mooted in 2018, is under the Penang Development Corporation.

Upon completion, it will be handed over to Seberang Prai City Council (MBSP) as the owner.

It was reported that there was a delay in construction during the various phases of the movement control order when the country was hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.


Seberang Prai mayor Datuk Azhar Arshad said construction was already in its final stage, with completion expected by Aug 31 next year.

The new building will have 112 wet stalls, 51 dry stalls and 90 booths at its hawker centre.

The new place will also have 220 lots for its street mall section, management office, surau, disabled-friendly toilets, and rubbish depots.

“Another good feature of the new market and hawker centre is the safety aspects, where there will be installation of fences and lighting around the complex compound,” said Azhar.

“It will also feature other disabled-friendly facilities such as ramp, tactile flooring and designated parking for the disabled.

“Those living in Seberang Jaya and the surrounding areas will benefit from the new and latest landmark in the area,” he said.

    Personally I think the state government intentionally says that it is scheduled to open at end of August but looking at the physical works completed it should be open before Raya in April ..
