Roads to close for Ipoh Cultural Parade on July 23

SEVERAL major roads here will be closed on July 23 for the Ipoh Cultural Parade.
The parade, jointly organised by the Perak Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCCI) and Tourism Perak, will see the affected roads closed in stages between 6am and 12pm.
The affected roads are Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab, Jalan Sultan Iskandar, Jalan Leong Boon Swee, Jalan Sultan Yusuff, Jalan Datuk Onn Jaafar, Jalan Sultan Idris Shah and Jalan S. P. Seenivasagam.
Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm Sum Chang Keong said the parade would begin at the Ipoh Padang, where the procession would make its way towards the Ipoh Town Hall at Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab via Jalan S.P. Seenivasagam.
“The procession will then pass through Jalan Leong Boon Swee into Little India along Jalan Sultan Yusuff.
“It will then turn into Jalan Sultan Iskandar, Jalan Datuk Onn Jaafar and Jalan Sultan Idris Shah before returning to the field,” he said, adding that a 25,000-strong crowd is expected.
“About 90 traffic policemen will also be stationed at strategic locations, including the Jalan Raja Musa Aziz-Jalan Panglima Bukit Gantang Wahab junction and Jalan St John to direct traffic,” he added.
The parade is held in conjunction with PCCCI’s 110th anniversary and Visit Perak Year 2017.
Some 2,000 participants and 150 floats from 55 contingents will take part in the parade, which is expected to be flagged off by Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abd Kadir.
ACP Sum said those wanting to get to the Ipoh Railway Station would need to travel to Regat Tun Perak.
“There will be a passageway to the train station.
“I also urge all motorists to plan their journey ahead,” he added.
