SUBANG Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) should not approve any more commercial developments in USJ 1, Subang Jaya until roads dispersing traffic from the area are fully built.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh said residents had raised concerns over the upcoming commercial projects that will bring heavier traffic to the jam-prone area.
“The residents are not against development but they want a sustainable one that brings more conveniences than problems to the community.
“Thus I urge the local council not to approve any other new commercial development application in the area until a dialogue with USJ 1 residents on this matter is held and detailed solutions are agreed upon.”
Yeoh said two proposed access roads are — from USJ1 to Kesas highway and from Summit USJ area to Persiaran Murni.
She added that currently three new commercial projects in USJ 1 had been approved and work would start soon.
On another matter, Yeoh said residents of SS14, Subang Jaya were crying foul over frequent water disruptions in their residential area and they are not happy with Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) for failing to give prior notice about the disruption.
“I have received a lot of complaints through Twitter and emails about the disruptions that had happened five times in a month.
“I have brought up this issue to Syabas but until now there is no official and proper explanation on the disruption.
“Syabas needs to tell the residents the reasons for the disruptions as soon as possible and what they plan to do about the water supply,” she said.
