SUNGAI PETANI: Two roads in Sungai Patani will be closed in conjunction with Thaipusam, police said.


Kuala Muda Traffic chief DSP Ahmad Kamil Ahmad said some roads around Jalan Sekerat and Jalan Kuala Ketil would be closed from 5pm to 12 midnight on Feb 6-8. 
In Jalan Kuala Ketil, the closure will involve the Jalan Ibrahim/Jalan Kuala Ketil junction until the road beside the Sungai Patani Police station, depending on the traffic, from 8am until 12 midnight, on Feb 6-7. 
"These roads will be fully closed from 6pm until the procession is over, on Feb 8," he told reporters at the Kuala Muda Police headquarters here, today. 
He said bus operators would have to relocate to Jalan Kampung Baru while commercial premises owners must vacate parking bays for visitors to the festival.
