MALACCA: Jonker Walk and Jalan Kota, which are major tourist attractions here, are now smoke-free zones.

Smokers risk being fined RM5,000 if caught puffing along the streets in the historic city.

State Health director Datuk Dr Dul Hadi Md Junid said smoking indoors or outdoors including entertainment outlets at the two locations were strictly prohibited.

“A signboard has been put up next to the Tan Kim Seng bridge near the entrance of Jonker Walk to remind smokers.

“There is a special spot below the signboard for smokers to put out their cigarettes and a bin for them to dispose it,” he said at the World Tobacco-Free Day celebration in Banda Hilir here on Saturday.

He said the department planned to install eight more similar signboards along Jonker Walk.

They are in the process of getting permission from the Heritage Department for Jalan Kota as the street is located in the heritage core zone.
