RESIDENTS and business owners are urged to provide feedback on a proposed one-way traffic plan along Jalan Bunga Mawar 4 in the Teratai state constituency.

The change of the 450m two-lane-road to a one-way lane will help ease traffic congestion on the main road of Jalan Bunga Mawar.

Teratai assemblyman Bryan Lai said a town hall meeting would take place at the Taman Putra Community Hall at 2pm on Sept 8 to address the issue.

“Taman Muda residents have complained about the traffic near the morning market and asked for a solution to the long-standing problem.

“Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) has proposed to turn Jalan Bunga Mawar 4 into a one-way traffic to solve this problem.“We think the proposal can work but we would like to listen to residents’ feedback during the town hall meeting and gather their opinion on the traffic changes, ” Lai said, adding that the proposal was highlighted to various associations in the area.

The proposed plan will allow motorists to enter from Jalan Bunga Mawar and exit into Jalan Teratai 1/2.

Lai said if everything went smoothly, a three-month trial period for the one-way traffic system would start in November and would be monitored for further changes.

“Improvements will be made from time to time during the trial period, and we hope it will reduce congestion on the road surrounding the Taman Muda morning market, ” he added.
