Mayor wants link to open by next month

PETALING JAYA mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman wants the developer to open the road linking Ara Damansara and Tropicana by the end of January.

The link is still closed despite an order last month from the Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim to open it to ease traffic congestion at the much debated Jalan Tanjung.

Under an injunction, the road was to remain closed pending the completion of the Tropicana Tunnel, following strong objections from Tropicana residents.

Roslan confirmed that the injunction had been lifted and all legal matters were supposed to have been solved.

But the problem is, the road is in a bad condition and the developer needs four months to complete the repair work.

Road plan submitted by the developer had been approved and the company was also to meet nearby developers to discuss other matters.

“How do you expect the residents to wait for four months for the road to be opened?”

“The festive season is here and the relevant parties have to expedite it as it is a crucial situation we are facing here,” he said during a press conference after the Petaling Jaya City Council’s full board meeting yesterday.

This, and other road issues, made the council’s engineering department the target of criticism from councillors during the meeting.

The councillors expressed regret that the department tasked to monitor the contractors had actually gave in to their excuses for the delay in progress.

They highlighted the situation at the Lembah Subang tunnel connecting Ara Damansara and Taman Megah Mas, which would be closed until Jan 4 for upgrading work.

“There had been many delays, and the work is only 20% complete now.

“Can the contractor be sure that the tunnel be reopened before school starts?” asked councillor Tiew Way Keng.
