It was previously announced that UTCs nationwide will operate from 8am to 7pm starting 01 January 2019

However due to public outcry, the Finance Ministry has made another change to the operating hours of Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) nationwide.

Starting 22 January 2019, UTCs will operate the following hours:

Besides the 7 UTCs that operate till 10pm, the remaining centres will now close at 5pm instead of 7pm. All centres will close on state and federal public holidays.

What do you think of the revised hours? It is better for working adults or has Putrajaya made another mistake?
