One of the key highlights of the renovation is the implementation of measures to mitigate flooding, a longstanding issue that has plagued the market during rainy seasons. The new design includes improved drainage systems and elevation of certain areas to prevent waterlogging, ensuring a more comfortable and safe environment for vendors and shoppers alike.

In addition to the structural improvements, the upgraded market also features new washrooms, adding to the convenience and hygiene standards of the facility. This development is expected to attract more visitors to the market and boost economic activities in the surrounding community.
