Tanah Abang vendors relocated
The Jakarta Post
Tasik Market vendors in Tanah Abang business district, Central Jakarta, have been relocated to East Cideng, Central Jakarta, after their designated space for trading was closed to make way for a transit-oriented development project.
“Most of them have been relocated to East Cideng […]. Yesterday, I arrived at around 9 or 10 p.m. and saw that the sellers had been there. There are up to 500 sellers who have been accommodated at the new spot,” Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno said on Thursday, as quoted by kompas.com.
He added that the city administration would provide toilets there and the sellers, who specialize in selling embroidered textiles, as well as customers should be able to use the mushola (prayer room) in the area.
Tasik Market, named after the vendors’ hometown of Tasikmalaya in West Java, previously was on a plot of land belonging to state-owned railway operator Kereta Api Indonesia. (wnd)
