These include the implementation of the control mechanism for those entering and exiting the night market.

He said, only 50 to 150 people may be allowed to enter the night market and when someone comes out, others can also enter.

Food stalls will also be relocated to Jadewell Parking and the area will be divided into two. He explained that a line will be used for food stalls while a line will serve as a "dining area" for customers.

Ragma added that when the night market reopens and when a problem occurs, it will also be closed immediately.

It will be recalled that the night market reopened on December 1 but it was also closed immediately due to a crowd control problem.
