The two streets will open daily from 6:00 to 9:00  and 11:00 to 13:00.

The two ‘food streets’ is a part of a pilot project to design gastronomy zones with designated time.

Some 35 sellers are only permitted to register as either food or drink vendors, not both, in order to ensure fair competition and benefits to each vendor.

Businesses are also limited to operating for one shift per day and are responsible for cleaning their stall after their shift ends. Portable hand washing stations will also be provided.

Basic preparations for the opening have been completed by the participating businesses, including the acquisition of nametags, uniforms, aprons, gloves, plastics bowls and glasses.

The trial was expected to open up appropriate and legal business destinations for street vendors. If successfully, the project will be expanded to other roads./.
