TTDI the first township to gain from Safe City programme

GOING around Taman Tun Dr Ismail, one would notice the number of changes that has taken place over the past months.

The township is the first to enjoy the benefits of the Safe City programme under the National Key Results Area (NKRA).

Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Chor Chee Heung had set aside a budget of RM1.45mil for the scheme implemented in TTDI in October.

TTDI Residents Association chairman Mohd Hatim Abdullah said most of the features installed in the neighbourhood were requested by the residents.

Finer details: A worker repairing the damaged fencing along the playground.

Hatim said the residents wanted the Government to install railings along walkways, safety mirrors and closed circuit cameras.

He said they were happy that their area was chosen for the pilot project.

He added that there were about 30 crime cases a month in TTDI involving house burgalry, car break-ins and snatch thefts.

So far, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has installed seven safety mirrors at the commercial area in TTDI to help curb crime.

Safety mirrors can been at the backlanes of Jalan Aminuddin Baki and Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi especially for pedestrians to look out for suspicious characters in the alley.

Three emergency hotline notice boards were also put up in Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi, Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad and Jalan Dato’ Sulaiman.

Railings to enable pedestrians to walk along the pathway without fear have also been put up along Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi.

“We had also requested for a perimeter fence made of galvanised steel at the border of TTDI and Kampung Sungai Penchala, however, due to budget constraints a chain link fence is being erected,” added Hatim.

According to him, residents have been waiting for a fence for about 15 years as the roads heading into TTDI near Lorong Rahim Kajai 5 would be crowded during peak hours.

Some of the residents also proposed that the playgrounds in TTDI be lighted up to deter youngsters from hanging out and indulging in bad habits.

Protected: Railings are installed along Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi to enable pedestrians to walk along the pathway without fear of being robbed by motorcyclists. There is also a sign bearing emergency numbers.

So far the playgrounds in Lorong Rahim Kajai 4 and Lorong Burhanuddin 8 have been fitted with streetlights.

Several hotspots will have new streetlights with 250watts compared with the 100watts now.

Hatim said they were waiting for all their other requests to be fulfilled before the NKRA sent another feedback form to gather the residents’ opinion.

“We have informed all the residents that we are working closely with the Government and DBKL and are looking forward to getting the approval for a gated and guarded community,” he said.

TTDI has long since requested for a gated and guarded community, however, the Government needed 80% of residents’ consent to do so.

Hatim said they had the consent of 60% of the residents now.

Hatim said they would continue to work with the government until the residents feel that TTDI had become a safe township.
