THE August edition of Subang Jaya Car-Free Day provided more cheer for the community.
Among the highlights were a fire-fighting demonstration by the Fire and Rescue Department and martial arts showcase by Persatuan Silambam Malaysia.
The monthly car-free event is organised by Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) at Jalan Kemajuan, Subang Jaya (in front of Aeon Big Subang Jaya), Selangor.
MBSJ’s corporate and strategic management department said in a statement, “Our programme allows city folk to enjoy leisurely and healthy activities with family and friends.”
The event featured over 15 activities including football, Zumba, netball, rappelling, abseiling, flying fox, rock climbing and line dancing.
A safety demonstration by the Subang Jaya police was held along with a ‘search and destroy’ Aedes mosquito exhibition by MBSJ’s Health Department.
Free eye screening was also available for visitors.
Subang Jaya mayor Mohd Fauzi Mohd Yatim, deputy mayor Mohd Zulkurnain Che Ali and Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Wan Azlan Wan Mamat took part in a cycling activity.
StarMetro previously reported that Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng requested MBSJ to provide better traffic management during its car-free day event.
She had asked MBSJ to allow residents easy access to their homes instead of completely blocking off roads.
This was in response to the July edition of the car-free day event which overlapped with a marathon in Bandar Sunway, resulting in many roads being closed off and SS16 residents being unable to return home.
