Five food truck operators have been issued permits by the Bandar Seri Begawan Municipal Department to operate at a popular recreation spot along Jalan Residency to enliven the area.
As part of a ‘food truck activity’, the operators have set up food trucks in an empty lot between the Brunei Arts and Handicraft Training Centre and the Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hajah Saleha Bridge since January 1. The activity also serves to help food truck entrepreneurs. Their permits will last until March 22 and allowed to operate between 4pm to 8pm.
The area is popular for activities such as brisk walking, jogging, roller-blading and skateboarding. Its also a scenic location for a casual stroll and a place to relax along the waterfront.
The department has appointed one of the food truck operators to be the focal point to communicate with the department from time to time or when matters arise.
Food truck operators are required to adhere to standard operating procedures of COVID-19 for market and stalls operations during the Early Endemic Phase in the National COVID-19 Recovery Plan Framework issued by the Prime Minister’s Office.
