Thu, Nov 01, 2007
THE 38-year-old Havelock Road Cooked Food Centre was officially reopened for business on Thursday after a $1.2 million refurbishment.

It resumed business on May 1 after 7 months of upgrading under the National Environment Agency's (NEA) Hawker Centres Upgrading Programme.

Jalan Besar GRC MP Lily Neo opened and toured the centre on Thursday.

With 30 cooked-food stalls, the one-storey building is now equipped with new individual mechanical exhaust hoods and flue systems.

It also boasts a seating capacity of 96 tables, up from the previous 77.

Other highlights include elderly and handicapped-friendly features such as ramps, wheelchair-friendly tables and toilets with nappy changing tables.

To date, 58 hawker or food centres have been upgraded and six centres are undergoing makeovers.
