ROAD users of Jalan Pipit in Puchong Jaya want the authorities to repair the damaged road soon. They also want the authorities to conduct a study on the possibility of building an access road from Kesas Highway to Puchong Jaya.
Puchong resident Tay Ah Wan, a frequent road user along the stretch, hopes the road condition can be improved by retarring and drawing yellow boxes at junctions while upgrading the drainage system.
“In recent years, there has been an increase in population due to the mushrooming of apartments in the area. Moreover, the existence of a primary and secondary school also contribute to the congestion during peak hours,” he said.
The road was also narrowed by the existence of hawkers stalls that operate businesses at night.
“Because of this we have to make way for heavy vehicles that pass through. There have been cases of several accidents here,” Tay added.
However, Puchong MCA chairman Datuk Wong Hock Aun said there was good news as the state government has allocated RM1mil for road repairs and to improve drainage systems.
“The state government should utilise the funds to repair, resurface and improve the drainage along the stretch of Jalan Pipit.
“I urge Kinrara assemblyman Teresa Kok to make this road (Jalan Pipit) a priority,” he said.
He added that the drainage system was poor and it had resulted in water retention on the road and cracks and potholes, posing danger to road users especially motorcyclists.
“I urge the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to patch up the potholes first.
“For a long-term solution, residents have requested for the MPSJ and state government to study if it was viable to have an ingress and egress (entry and exit points) from Kesas to Puchong Jaya,” he said.
