FED up of waiting for the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to fix a road hump and install warning signs, the Seri Kembangan Federal Village Security and Development Committee (JKKKP) took matters into their own hands.

According to Serdang parliamentary constituency coordinator Datuk Liew Yuen Keong, the road linking the Bukit Serdang commercial area to the residential area of Jalan BS 5/26 was opened a month ago.

“While it brings convenience to road users, the lack of signage has caused accidents. I had seen one happen.

“We have received numerous complaints.

“There have been more than five accidents in a month,” he said.

JKKKP chairman Tang Kim Loy said they had asked MPSJ to install signs and rectify the road humps three weeks ago but to no avail.

“Some drive straight through the field,” he said, pointing to the damaged curb, “while some complained that the road hump is too high.”

“No action has been taken, so we painted the road humps and installed a sign to warn people,” he said.

However, he declined to reveal the costs.

When asked if they had applied for permission to install the sign, Liew said, “It is for the benefit of the public.”

Bukit Serdang resident Chan Kok Foo said he had to drive over about 30 road humps from his house to the Bukit Serdang 14 industrial area.

“I hope MPSJ can modify the road humps as they damage our cars,” he said.
