Nong Chik: No decision yet on TTDI market project

NO decision has been made yet on the proposed redevelopment of the 25-year-old Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) Market, although an agreement has been reached between the stakeholders and the authorities.

Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin confirmed recently that Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) had received an application to redevelop the market land but no decision had been made on the proposal.

“Everything is still in the negotiation stage and it is a long process,” he told reporters after meeting the TTDI Market Traders Association and the TTDI Residents Association.

However, Nong Chik said the stakeholders would be included in future discussions and their views on the development of the site taken into consideration.

It was reported that Kuala Lumpur mayor Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail, who was also present during the meeting, had said recently that a developer had submitted a proposal for the development of the market land but that City Hall had yet to approve the project.

DBKL had received an application from WCT Sdn Bhd and Perdana Padu Sdn Bhd to redevelop the market site.

About 100 traders and residents staged a peaceful demonstration in front of the TTDI market on New Year’s Eve against the demolition of the market.

Nong Chik said during the meeting both associations had voiced their views on the redevelopment of the market.

“They want the market to remain at the site. The developer would have to take into consideration all their views,” said Nong Chik.

The traders want the market complex to be retained with a multi-storey carpark and a link to the MRT station built on the site.

“The government will try to find a win-win situation for all the parties,” he said.

Also present at the press conference were TTDI Market Traders Association chairman Jenny Loo and TTDI Residents Association chairman Mohd Hatim Abdullah.
