No payment needed for any road resurfacing work, MBPJ tells homeowners


THE cost of resurfacing roads up to the entranceways of houses is covered by the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) and no further payment should be made by homeowners to contractors for the work.

In a response to complaints from Petaling Jaya residents that contractors were imposing charges for driveway resurfacing, MBPJ clarified that the issue involved an external contractor, not one that it had appointed.

“Before any road resurfacing is done, MBPJ will issue a notice to the affected residents.

“Under Section 3(3.1) of this notice, it is clearly stated that residents should not make any payment to anyone taking advantage of this situation by offering resurfacing services at the entrances of their homes.

“There are no charges imposed on homeowners for the work done by contractors appointed by MBPJ and the entranceways to their homes will be resurfaced for free by the council," it said in a statement Wednesday (Oct 4).

The council urged residents to report any such incidents to the police and notify the MBPJ complaints unit (03-7954 2020 or email to about individuals falsely claiming to represent the council and requesting payment for such services.
