The roofing akin to what is already available at Petaling Street and Jalan Masjid India in Kuala Lumpur is expected to improve business in the area as pedestrians do not have to go under the rain anymore.

The roof which cost almost RM1 million has been approved by the state government, and it will see the 165-year-old heritage street see back it’s glorious days.
