Partial road closure in Subang Jaya for drainage upgrade


Jalan SS19/7 in Subang Jaya will be partially closed and traffic diverted from Aug 12 to Oct 13. — GLENN GUAN/The Star

THERE will be a partial road closure and traffic diversion along Jalan SS19/7 in Subang Jaya from Aug 12 to Oct 13.

“This is to allow for upgrading works on the drainage along part of Jalan SS19/7,” said Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng.

She added that the project by Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) would cost RM362,000.

“The upgrading is necessary to resolve flash floods that frequently affect part of SJK(C) Lick Hung and Masjid Abu Bakar As-Siddiq.

“The partial closure of Jalan SS19/7 will be done in two phases and impact access to SJK(C) Lick Hung and SK SS19.”

As such, she advised parents and school bus operators to drop off and pick up schoolchildren at alternative locations.

The new location for SJK(C) Lick Hung is at Gate D, Jalan SS19/7A, while the new location for SK SS19 is the gate next to the community hall at Jalan SS19/5E.

During the phase one closure from Aug 12 to Sept 12, the stretch between Restoran Choy Kee and Pusat Tuisyen Literasi will be closed.

During the phase two closure from Sept 13 to Oct 13, the stretch between Klinik Rosli and 99 Speedmart will be closed.

“There will be flagmen on site to manage traffic flow.

“MBSJ will also ensure that there are safety measures in place including traffic cones,” said Ng.

“Although the walkway outside the schools will remain open, schoolchildren are not encouraged to use it as they will be too close to the project works,” said Ng.

She was speaking during a press conference which was attended by headmasters and representatives of both schools affected by the partial closure.

Councillor Chia Yew Ken said MBSJ would also notify the 20 shops that would be impacted by the partial road closure.

SK SS19 headmaster Peralan Navaratnam said police needed to manage traffic at peak hours and Ng agreed to pass on his request.

“The announcement will be challenging as we have to notify everyone within a week,” he said.

For enquiries, call MBSJ’s hotline at 03-8024 7700 or WhatsApp 012-327 2366.
