PJ contraflow plan scrapped, says MBPJ

THE plan to implement a contraflow involving several roads in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, has been cancelled permanently starting April 19.

Based on a press statement by the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) the temporary contraflow involved the closure of roads and junctions along Jalan Templer - Jalan Gasing - Jalan Othman and the closure of a road median at Jalan Templer.

The route without the contra flow would begin starting May 2.

The temporary contraflow study took place starting March 1 on weekdays from 5pm to 7.30pm.

During the trial motorists from Jalan Othman heading to the New Pantai Expressway (NPE) had to make a U-turn at the Assunta Hospital roundabout.

It was earlier reported by StarMetro that Bukit Gasing assemblyman Rajiv Rishyakaran said day one of the trial run resulted in bad congestion at the Assunta roundabout, with motorists resorting to making illegal U-turns at road medians along Jalan Templer.
