Don’t close roads to vegetable trucks, Camerons farmers say

VEGETABLE farmers are seeing red over a proposal by the Pahang Public Works Department (PWD) to ban heavy vehicles transporting the produce on narrow and congested Cameron Highlands roads on weekends.

Fearing the proposal would be pushed through soon, farmers have stepped up their opposition by seeking help from Tanah Rata assemblyman Ho Chi Yang to make a representation on their behalf to Works Minister Alexander Nanta Linggi to trash the whole idea.
