Petrol Stations in Cameron Highlands - More needed

You can only get petrol from two towns - Ringlet and Brinchang. If I recall correctly, you can find Shell station in Ringlet and Brinchang and Petronas in Brinchang. I don't ever recall any petrol stations was ever set up in Tanah Rata since long time ago, so I suppose this DAP deputy chairman must have recalled it from his earlier days. Anyway, Cameron Highlands is not a big place and may not be economically viable for more petrol stations, yet on the other hand on peak periods, you do need to queue up for your turn at the pump especially Shell which is more popular than Petronas. Anyway, will see how this work out...

PAHANG DAP deputy chairman J. Simmathri has called for more petrol stations to be set up in Cameron Highlands, reported Makkal Osai.

He said more stations were needed because many motorists had difficulty getting fuel at the popular tourist site.

"There is no petrol station in Camerons, while two petrol stations in Tanah Rata have been converted into parking and business areas," he added.

Simmathri said the Government should consider giving approval for petrol stations in Blue Valley and Tanah Rata, which would not only benefit the locals, but also tourists who come in the thousands to the area. -- The Star News
