‘More parking bays needed in Taman Jinjang Baru commercial area’

Vehicles parked on both sides of Jalan 2/32 in Taman Jinjang Baru.

Taman Jinjang Baru business owners in Kepong are urging Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) to resurface Jalan 2/32 and add more parking bays along the roads.

Kepong Community Service Centre head Yee Poh Ping appealed to DBKL’s Transportation Department to conduct a road survey as visitors to the area needed more parking space.

“There are 10 three-storey shoplots along the 100m road, with businesses there consisting of banks, hotels and offices.

“People who frequent the area often say it is difficult to find parking because there is a lack of bays,” he said.

Currently, some vehicles are parked by the roadside even though there are no parking boxes marked out on the road.

Yee said DBKL should consider adding parking bays here to make it easier for people to visit the commercial area.

“DBKL could also consider converting into parking spots the grassy site where it recently built a road kerb along Jalan 2/32 to stop motorists from turning into Jalan Besar Kepong.

“A small part of the road reserve next to the kerb could also be converted into parking bays.

“Besides that, Jalan 2/32 is uneven and needs to be resurfaced,” he said.

A business owner, who only wanted to be known as Chan, said markings were initially drawn along Jalan 2/32 for parking bays but they were later removed during drainage upgrading works along the road.

“The lines for designated parking were not repainted after the drain project was completed.

“We hope that DBKL can look into the matter and increase the number of public parking spots in the area,” she said.
