UPTOWN BEAUFORT TRADERS CALL FOR BETTER FACILITIES


3 JAN 2021


BEAUFORT: Traders in Uptown Beaufort here hope their business premises could be refurbished including installing a roof for the convenience of traders and customers.

This is because the stalls are not only located near the Padas River but are also close to the railway, bridge and roundabout on the main route to Beaufort.

Burger seller Mohd Shahrul Misran, 36, hopes that the issue will get the attention of the relevant parties in order to provide a more comfortable place for customers.

Shahrul, who has been in business for the past two years, said Uptown Beaufort is getting more popular and is drawing a steady stream of customers in the evening.

“The main problem here is parking shortage as Sungai Padas is behind us, the bridge is on the side while in front is the main road and railway track,” he told Bernama.

Uptown Beaufort started operation about 10 years ago and is opened as early as 4 pm to 3 am but now it is closed at 12 midnight in compliance with the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO).

There are more than 10 stalls selling a variety of dishes and beverages with live entertainment courtesy of the Beaufort youth busking group.

Sharing his sentiment is trader Mohd Nazlan Junaidi, 35, who sells cendol, shaved ice (ABC) of various flavours.

Mohd Nazlan from Kampung Limbawang said, he had spent his own money to build his stall which is located by the bridge.

"We, the traders here hope there will be a solution for the benefit of traders and visitors because it is a popular spot in the evening," he said, who sells ABC priced between RM2.50 to RM5. -Bernama
