Alternative site for LRT proposed


RESIDENTS of Saujana Residency in Subang Jaya submitted an alternative site for LRT station 4 on the proposed Kelana Jaya extension line to the Mentri Besar’s office yesterday.

They have suggested that the line run between Carrefour and Subang Parade as well as locate station 4 over the Federal Highway similar to the Bangsar station.

Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh said the residents had also submitted their proposal to Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana) for a review of the LRT route on July 12.

The new route is planned to be sandwiched between Saujana Residency Condominium and Empire Shopping Gallery.

The residents are concerned over safety issues as well as the noise from the train.

She said during the last Selangor State Economic Council (MTES) the Mentri Besar had asked the residents to study the plan to come up with a possible solution.

“We have had several meetings and the new alternative site for the station will see the line near a commercial area instead of residential,” she added.

Yeoh said Prasarana had replied they would study all possible solutions but were unable to commit on the alternative route proposed by the residents.

The proposed Kelana Jaya LRT extension line will start from the Lembah Subang–Kelana Business Centre, through Subang Jaya, USJ, Alam Megah and ending at the hub in Putra Heights.

The proposed line will consist of 13 stations and 17km of guideway.

Both the Kelana Jaya and Ampang lines are expected to be commissioned by end of 2012.

While the deadline for the public feedback has ended, information on the proposed LRT extension is available at www.lrtextension.com
