USJ 1 residents want exit to Kesas highway

USJ 1 residents in Subang Jaya are appealing to the authorities to create an exit to the Kesas highway.

Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh said three important access points were completed last year and this year.

“One in Jalan TS 6/10A allows residents to get from USJ 1 to USJ 8. A slip road joins Kesas highway to Persiaran Subang Mewah, while the other connects the highway to Jalan SS13/1K.

“The two slip roads only provide access from the highway into USJ 1 and not vice-versa,” she said.

“The residents’ only access out of USJ 1 now is Persiaran Subang Permai, which is why they need an additional access, to disperse traffic from USJ 1 to the highway.”

Yeoh said the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) had requested for the Persiaran Subang Mewah slip road to be made a two-way access to the highway, but it was turned down.

“I urge the Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM) and Kesas to allow the additional exit point, or do something soon to alleviate the residents’ daily headache,” she said.

Yeoh noted that there had been no new development with regards to the Subang-Kelana Link, which the local community complained had created greater congestion at the Kewajipan Interchange instead of easing it due to the large volume of by-passing traffic.

She was speaking at a town hall session with residents, where she and MPSJ councillor/JKP Zone 4 Roslan Shahir Mohd Shahir updated them on current issues.

“The MPSJ will be lighting 10 more parks this year, including one in USJ 1/2A,” said Yeoh, adding that she was happy that funds for basic infrastructure was well used.

“I recently went on a site visit with Health Ministry officers to identify potential places for the first government clinic in Subang Jaya.

“To save cost, I suggested that the clinic be located at the shoplots opposite the Giant Hypermarket in USJ 1, whereby some minor renovations can be done and the rest of the funds be used to buy equipment.”

On a group of parents’ appeal for a pedestrian bridge in front of SJK (C) Chee Wen, Yeoh said she was awaiting MPSJ’s Engineering Deparment to respond with regards to sorting out the technical issues.

To a question on changing USJ 1’s leasehold title to freehold, Yeoh said the Selangor state government was studying the situation at PJ Old Town as a landmark case, which she would take note of for the leasehold areas in USJ 1 and PJS 7, Bandar Sunway.

Some other complaints brought up during the session included the need to light selected streets, illegal rubbish dumping, stray animals and the need for some form of barrier to be put up along Jalan USJ 1/2 to prevent people lingering at the playground or “spying” on residents staying across, all of which had been referred to the MPSJ.
