LANGKAWI – Pantai Chenang used to be a popular resort, but is now losing its attraction among tourists because the place is crowded and for safety reason, said Kuah assemblyman Nor Saidi Nanyan.
He said the inefficient garbage management and presence of too many vehicles, as well as motorcyclists using the pedestrian mall as their racing track, were becoming a nuisance for tourists.
“The tourists fear for their safety and I have raised this matter at the last State Assembly sitting,” he told reporters after opening the Solid Waste Management management and Public Cleansing Corporation (SWCorp) Beach Adoption programme at Pantai Tengah here.
He said, efforts were being made by the Langkawi District and Land Office, as well as several other agencies, to address the problem.
On the Beach Adoption programme by SWCorp, Nor Saidi said it was a proactive effort to maintain the cleanliness of the 2km Pantai Tengah.
