Did you catch The Star Metro October 28, in which Puchong MP Lau Yeng Peng was quoted as saying the following:

URL: http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2005/10/28/central/12446689&sec=central


Lau said his office had also been inundated with calls from Puchong residents asking about the status of the proposed toll-free link road between LDP (near IOI Mall) and USJ 1 (near Giant).

He said the link was actually part of the original blueprint for Puchong's development and planned even before there was ever a proposal for the construction of LDP.

He said the majority of Puchong and USJ residents were in favour of the link road and MPSJ even gave its approval in 2003 for the four-lane link road, which would involve the construction of a 50m bridge across the Klang river.

He said the cost of the bridge was estimated to be RM20mil and several property developers in the Puchong area who would benefit directly from its construction had agreed to contribute towards the cost of construction.

“The link road will give a boost to commercial and trade activities in Puchong and USJ,” said Lau adding that the council should start working on its construction as soon as possible.

I have underlined SIX (6) points which I think may be ( 1 ) controversial; ( 2 ) impactful to overall Quality of Life in USJ.

You have seen the controversy around the proposed Batu Tiga flyover that willpotentially discharge Shah Alam-originated traffic into USJ-Subang Jaya.

Now, will we have a double whammy as the Summit-Giant junction along Persiaran Kewajipan was already choked?

Let's have a conversation on this issue.

looks quite ridiculous how brainless projects can be planned and executed, just for the profit of a handfull of people and regardless of the majority effected.
find it great how you guys in this forum handle all those petitions and protests.
from past cases/experience can anybody tell me how high are the chances for the public to stop or change such plans ?
btw. i do support every petition that makes sense to me and effects me !

Because the issue at hand is important and affects all of us, I need to repost what I have been trying to highlight to you the implication of this new link. As I have said, USJ will always object to any incoming highway if it brings in traffic for the wrong reason and the residents here have to sacrifice more than it benefits. What is wrong with the present highways in Puchong? Look at how screwed up the traffic system in SJ/USJ and yet they want to make it worst. How I wish that the planning of highways and access roads be left to the authority or else syiok syiok any developer with vested interest of its own can simply construct a highway into any community they like and the residents are at their mercy.


Who says only USJ 1 residents are objecting to this new link? Can I say that all SJ/USJ residents cannot tolerate new access roads being built for the wrong reason and we folks here have to tolerate this nonsense from morning till night. If this link is built for the Puchong residents to easily access USJ areas and at the same time avoid both the KESAS toll & LDP toll (Puchong), then I urge all residents here to strongly object to this link. We know right from the beginning that this highway is to serve these Puchong folks for the wrong reason. We heard of Aedes mosquitoes and here we have Aedes developers who are blood sucking and could not care less about people. What is wrong with the current arrangement? You want to save RM 2.00 (two ways) and yet want to give us hell? Mind you, we are not only talking about the traffic from Puchong. There are 6 housing estates with high density with thousands of apartments coming up next to this bridge. We also have traffic coming from Cyberjaya, Putrajaya and from other township such as Sri Kembangan, Bangi etc etc from the south. Did our politicians who many of us voted in the last election tell you that? Maybe they were busy promising those Puchong folks this dream project which will be our nightmares. Maybe to refresh some people's mind this is what was reported by The Star on 21 April 2004

Bridge, road more of a nuisance

By SALINA KHALID

RESIDENTS in USJ1 are upset over a plan to build a bridge and a road that will link Puchong to USJ1. They are of the opinion that, though these will provide easy access for Puchong residents going to Subang Jaya, it will also cause traffic congestion.

“We have about 4,000 houses in the neighbourhood,’’ said USJ1 Residents Association president Kamarudin Rasol.

“Building the bridge and road will have with disastrous consequences by opening up a flood gate to motorists from Puchong,” he said.

On Sunday, about 50 USJ1 residents, along with Subang Jaya Residents Association representatives held a peaceful demonstration to protest the building of the new bridge.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v732/pcyeoh/SayNotoTESCOLink.jpg

Headed by Kamarudin, they gathered where the road was to be built – SRJK (C) Chee Wen. Also present was Kelana Jaya member of parliament Loh Seng Kok and Subang Jaya assemblyman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng.

Kamarudin said the location was also inappropriate. “It will pose a danger to the schoolchildren,’’ he said, adding that the situation would be made worse when parents parked their cars by the roadside to pick up and drop off their children.

Kamarudin said 90% of the houses in USJ1 were occupied and currently more than 5,000 vehicles plied the area daily. “The figure will go up if the link is to be built,’’ he added.

Lee said the bridge and road were mentioned at a Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) meeting last year.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v732/pcyeoh/politiciansatwork.jpg

“It was decided that such a link will be good for Puchong residents who want to get to Subang Jaya,’’ he said.

The road will begin from Tesco hypermarket in Puchong to a road next to the school in USJ1.

The project will include building a bridge over the Klang River.

Besides providing a shorter route for residents in Puchong, it will also enable them to skip the Subang Jaya toll plaza.

If approved, the project will begin next year.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v732/pcyeoh/usj-tescolink.jpg

“MPSJ is still studying the matter, but as far as I am concerned, there will not be any bridge in the area,” said Lee, adding that some developers in USJ1 and Puchong had mentioned the link in their advertisements to boost sales.

“House buyers must be careful as the link has not got the council’s nod yet, he added.

It is very presumptuous of YB Lau Yeng Peng to make a sweeping statement saying that the majority of USJ Residents were/are in favour of the link road. From where did he gather this information?

Has he even spoken recently to the USJ residents in his constituency (USJ16 to USJ22)? or has he spoken to USJ Residents that are not in his constituency(USJ1 to USJ15 including the whole of Subang)?

I think he should actually paraphrase what he said with “THE MAJORITY OF RESIDENTS IN PUCHONG ARE IN FAVOUR OF THE LINK ROAD” since he mentioned that his office had been inundated with calls from Puchong Residents.

I would also like all of you to revisit the IPD Subang Jaya to IPD Puchong saga.

This, I have mentioned elsewhere, everyone seem to want to punch a "TOLL FREE" road into USJ/SJ.

Aiyoh, this BRAVO fella. Please lah....think a bit! You think people in Subang Jaya dont want new roads ka? But for the moment, this is a situation of potential problem analytical thinking! The existing traffic congestion problems have not been resolved and you keep thinking and asking for new roads coming into SJ/USJ for some selfish reasons.

I wish to draw your attention to the follwoing implications:

( 1 ) If the proposed USJ1 - LDP/IOI Mall toll-free road is pushed through, will it help the case for the Subang Heights-USJ3 flyover as a favaourable precedent?

( 2 ) If the proposed Subang Heights-USJ3 flyover is pushed through, will help the case for USJ1 - LDP/IOI Mall toll-free road as a favaourable precedent?

( 3 ) If both the proposed USJ1 - LDP/IOI Mall toll-free road and the Subang Heights-USJ3 flyover are pushed through, will it a double-whammy for Subang Jaya - USJ to be the collection trough for outside traffic?

Where should you reserve your "bullets" (to kill the probolem) for?

This is a timely reminder that as genuine residents of SJ/USJ we must have the gumption to see such projects for what they actually are.

We should not be picking which project we object to, but must make sure that we have a united stand with our MP and ADUN against unwarranted intrusions into our already crowded living and driving environment, whatever, these “outsiders” may say.

In Fact, in USJ, we should encourage more links to disperse the traffics away and into USJ.

We should have a deligent study on how many residents are heading to Puchong, Bukit Jalil, Old Klang Road, Belakong, The Mines and Serdang using exit of The Summit USJ. Those folks can use the proposed link and ease the bottle neck at The Summit USJ.

We should limit the development at USJ first before the traffic nightmare is solved. Why MPSJ still allow all sorts of commercial developments at USJ when the residents still facing the traffic problem after all this while. Is our ADUN have anything to say? Is it a diversion plan for the higher office so that the residents will not object to the unplanned commercial developments? Just look at the Taipan areas, you will know what I am talking.

At present, there are 2 very big road works in SJ area. Firstly, there is the NPE upgrade. The Sunway ramp from Persiaran Kewajipan, the flyover over Jengka Roundabout and the KL bound ramp at the Persiaran Tujuan / Subang Utama junction had already been completed. The Jengka roundabout will be turned into a signalized junction. The tunnel from Persiaran Tujuan to Jalan Subang Utama is under construction and will be completed in April. With this completion, there will not be any traffic light here.

The second work is the Subang / Kelana or Second Link. A long flyover from Old Subang Airport Road in Kelana Jaya to the front of 3K Complex in Persiaran Tujuan is being constructed. As such, the construction of the bus stop at Seri KL cannot be built now due to this work.

There is bound to be a lot of mess and dust with these 2 works. I visited the site with NPE officials yesterday.

Be patient and pray for your understanding.

The above is a reply from Dato' Lee to my letter regarding concerns about the construction projects along Pers. Kewajipan.

My reply is posted below:

Dear Dato' Lee

Thank you for your reply.

I do believe that the project at Jalan Subang Utama and Pers. Tujuan should be effective in reducing the bottlenecks at that point. This project is logical because of the extension of the NPE and the connection to the Federal Highway.

When traveling from Subang Jaya to the Federal Highway, KL bound, I have noticed a sign for the Guthrie Corridor. Perhaps there is a plan to extend the Guthrie Corridor to meet with the NPE somewhere near Shah Alam?

I must tell you that I am very concerned about the plans for Pers. Kewajipan. Although I can accept the construction of a flyover to cross the Federal Highway, I cannot understand why the remainder of the project would need to go ahead.

The Subang Jaya portion of this extended flyover will seriously damage quality of life in SS12 and SS13. The noise and the pollution will likely have a negative impact on the health of the staff and patients at Subang Jaya Medical Centre.

Ending the Kelana Jaya-Subang Jaya link at the 3K complex near Summit and KESAS will bring more traffic to an already overcrowded intersection. I can accept that the link could make it easier to exit from USJ in the morning, but the effect on other traffic is not worth the construction costs.

The lessons from the NPE extension to Jalan Jengka are clear. If the expressway ends suddenly, there will be traffic chaos. This plan will create more traffic problems exactly where they are not needed. Just like the NPE, the Kelana Jaya-Subang Jaya link will have to be extended to meet with another expressway, such as the LDP in Puchong, in order to reduce traffic problems.

Ironically, this corridor would have made a very effective route for an elevated LRT, since there are a very large number of trip generators along Pers. Kewajipan.

An LRT along Pers. Kewajipan would pass fairly closely to Subang Jaya KTM and Subang Parade. It would pass the SJMC and Taylor's, Inti, and Metropolitan Colleges. It would be a short feeder bus ride from Bandar Sunway and Sunway Pyramid. It would also pass Summit and run into USJ, which would have a significant impact on existing levels of traffic. Eventually the LRT could be extended through USJ1 and across the Klang river. An ideal terminal would be the IOI mall in Puchong.

This LRT would remove a large amount of traffic from USJ, providing excellent, reliable public transport service in an area that needs far more effective public transit.

Dato' Lee, I respectfully ask you to do whatever you can to change this project so that if it must go ahead, it becomes an LRT extension rather than an elevated highway. A properly planned LRT will improve Subang Jaya and USJ. An elevated highway will just lead to more traffic.

Kind regards, M

A meeting which was sheduled last night has to be postponed to next week out of respect to a member of the action committee whose family member passed away.

Be aware that the action committee will swing into action once again to ensure that the horse is placed before the cart and not the other way round. We will support any road development which will ease the traffic congestion in Subang Jaya/USJ rather than just bringing in more traffic and dumping them here. We want to see a comprehensive approach to solve the traffic problem here rather than the knee jerk approach. I guess there are pressure from Mydin to pull in traffic from Puchong/Seri Kembangan and from those housing developers around TESCO to push their traffic into Subang Jaya/USJ as a mean to sell their housing scheme. The two politicians who signed on our "AKU JANJI" pledged without sincerity and turned coat upon elected in the last general election and I believe they are trying to be popular with the Puchong/Seri Kembangan consituents and forget that a siszeable voters also come from the Ulu Subang Jaya area.

So...with the blessings from the Admins...Orchi uses this forum as one of the main platforms to appeal to ALL fellow concerned residents here...

WE NEED YOU NOW...WHAT SAY ALL OF YOU...???Err buddies:)...last night the BIG bird has stressed again...that IF the affected residents of USJ are not planning to carry on further with their stronger objections sooner to this bridge link proposal to link Tesco/IOI Puchong to USJ 1(toll free)...there would be a much greater chance that the relevant authorities and power-that-be politikus(s) would shove thru their final approvals for its construction very soon...

I have recently visited Mydin and noted that the hypermarket only provided 1 floor of covered parking on its ground floor. The building is very large but the peripheral land is so small and the cars jammed the road leading to that carpark. If there is a fire, I wonder how will the fire-engines be able to reach the back of the building since the only road leading to it is so narrow and jammed with vehicles trying to go in all the time.

From a layman's point of view, this building was not properly designed to cater for such a large no. of cars and shoppers. The traffic surrounding this area was already very bad before the construction of Mydin. A multi-level interchange was supposed to be build near the Summit junction to alleviate the serious jam in this area but the project never took off but instead Mydin was built with such a great speed! I wonder how did the authorities ever approve the CF for such a mammoth shopping mall/hypermarket in such a seriously flawed area?

Could it be that some 'unseen hands' have collaborated with certain authorities to push this hypermarket thru' so that the eventual nightmarish jam created in this area will make the residents here desperate enough to want and welcome the creation of a link road to Puchong called the Tesco Puchong Link to USJ1 as a desperate attempt to by-pass the gridlocked area? Food for thoughts....

I took this picture on the Puchong side on 09/03/2006 (6 months back), I wonder if the sign is still around.

According to the sign, the connection looks very simple, but in actual fact it could bring enough traffic into SJ/USJ to clog up every major road.

We will know who to thank when that happens, but the problem is who will be helping us solve the traffic chaos.

In some ways, even if they do build the USJ1 link road, with this traffic madness around Mydin, nobody will dare to come into this area. The jam may overflow all the way back to Puchong!

Err...a group of the regular community workers just had a meeting late last night with Dato Lee Hwa Beng on a separate community issue...

In which...there was a brief mention by Dato Lee about recent development of the proposed bridge link from IOI/TESCO Puchong to USJ 1...

The way Orchi sees it...since this issue has been dragged on for a longer than expected period of time for years...in which most of the relevant property developers over at both sides have more or less sold most of their developed properties...ahem...with huge profit money in their pockets...there maybe a possibility that they may just back out of the initial idea to pool their fundings together to build this bridge link(which was projected to cost around RM28 millions) after all...

So in the end...their properties buyers who would be hoping to gain the vital access to both sides of the bordering Sg. Kelang River...could be screwed by the empty promises from the relevant developers...?

It could be either the above possibility...or perhaps the freaking Gamuda which has the greater vested interests on both LDP n KESAS tolled expressway...could be the party involved in trying to prevent this proposed bridge link from taking shape with the relevant authority or power-that-be...to protect their heavy investments n interests in the ever increasing huge revenue earnings from the collections of toll rates from the high numbers motorists who otherwise would have opted to use the toll free bridge link instead each day...if it were to be built.

In hindsight...if the proposed bridge link were to be built...it would then serve as the ONLY alternative toll free road access between the 2 communities on both sides across the Sg. Kelang...meaning in between or even beyond both the Puchong n USJ/Subang Jaya communities....oh well.

This man, eversince he got elected in 2004, has not been seen nor heard; not in USJ, at least. So, how then could he know about the sentiments of his electorates from USJ 16 - USJ 22? !

Precisely... same goes for the "Y B" that represents USJ 23 - Putra Heights... oso M I A... , have not heard a peep or a burp from that fella...

Well, I agreed with the proposal to build the link between USJ 1 and Puchong. USJ 1 will be congested anyway with the numberssss of condominium coming up. Industrial lands are being converted to residential and factory torn down to build commercial shop lots. I wonder whether MPSJ councillors understand what is traffic congestion (already bad now and future will be worst). So with the new access link to Puchong it will also help to disperse traffic. But somehow with the link you will even see more and more industrial land being converted to Condos'. So there is pro and con.

I remember our LHM - assemblyman for SJ said some years ago about building access road from USJ1 to KESAS. The developer initially had cleared the land near the nursery and crusher run was put in place. However that was all and nothing happen after that. So whose scope to build the link to Kesas? MPSJ or Developers? Look likely there won't be any link or wait till another election.

Actually those residents crying for a link from Tesco to USJ 1 are very short sighted, I think. Most of those now fighting for the link, are staying around the Tesco area.

But imagine, once they open that link, all the lorries, vans etc are going to use that link to avoid paying toll. Now can you see how the scenario is going to be like in those housing estates behind the Tesco area? Now the residents have all the peace, quiet and safety because its a dead end. But imagine once there is a link to USJ 1, those fellas are going to feak out staying there!! The dust, the traffic, the noise etc....I tell you, they are going to regret for the rest of their lives for crying out for that link. They just cant see the trees for the forest!!

wah ... sound seriouse man !!!... :eek: .. erm i dont really getting the whole picture of this link exactly starting from which exact part of tesco and end which exact part of the usj 1 ... n just tempt by the idea of free link between that no need to pay toll :p ....

just wandering ... i'm not sure about the tesco puchong there ... but in usj 1 ... as i recall along the whole usj 1 beside the klang river .... there r a few rows of link houses after regalia business centre ... n there .. the new industrial area that exactly beside the river ... the whole new industrial area extend .... to the angsana apartments ... there will be a new studio apartment development site ... oso beside the river .... further to that there are still industry area near by the river ... which the road continue n will link to usj 15 (court 10) and further to usj 20 n 21 too ... so ... is that means the lorries and vans from usj 1 that try to avoid tolls ... will bring troubles to the residents areas behind tesco at puchong ..?

Err...apart from those commercial centres which you have mentioned before...there would be just as many housing n industrial development having been built at the Puchong end.

Ahem...on top of which...there is a grandfather of quarry n sand dredging site just behind IOI mall...which is owned by the freaking YTL group...meaning each day...hundreds of laden n empty trucks would be making thousands of trips in n out of the freaking grandfather quarry site on 24hrs/7 daily week n monthly basis...including weekends n holidays...

Err...so those freaking trucks n thousands of other commercial n private vehicles would be contemplating of doing the same freaking routines...like what you have just mentioned...

Therefore...should the freaking bridge link is built across the Sg. Kelang...those commercial trucks n private vehicles would NOT be thinking of using the existing toll roads to get between Puchong n USJ...right?

Or how about this...a pedestrian bridge, with parking lots on both sides?

That way, cars and buses and trucks cannot cross. So pedestrians park, cross the bridge, and shop.

For their convenience...cover the bridge...have private security (of course) at the bridge and the parking areas...and a shuttle bus service to Tesco as well....from the Puchong side of the Sg. Kelang....

Also, upgrade the Minibus service that connects Tesco, IOI mall, IOI business centre, and Bdr. Puteri...so people can move around easily in the area.

While we're at it...landscape the area, and create a Sg. Klang river walk for USJ and Puchong...a nice park

So pedestrians park, cross the bridge, and shop.Err buddy...when the property developers(4 parties) at Puchong end proposed the freaking bridge link project at the cost of RM28 millions from IOI/Tesco to USJ 1...they had the notion that they would be able to share the cost equally among themselves...n shove the plan thru with MPSJ n the relevant agencies...with the help n influence of the political representatives in Puchong as well.

So they assumed that they could do the same by promising the potential buyers of their properties in Puchong...that there would be a bridge link build which would connect to USJ 1...to boost the marketability of their properties...n they went ahead to print the proposed bridge link in the nice little leaflets that they hand out to the potential property buyers...

But now years down the road...though they managed to sell most if not all of their properties...the damn proposal to the bridge link project is still hanging in mid air(thought to have been approved)...so to speak...due to circumstances such as the continuing protests from few quarters especially from the residents living in USJ 1...n other affected USJ community.

But Orchi thinks...very likely the biggest obstacles...could be from Gamuda which has much to lose from this project...IF the bridge link is built...

Those other property developers would be much happier now especially when there isn't a need to share the costs to build the freaking bridge link...after having made huge amount of money from the sales of their properties...

Ahem...eventually the biggest losers would be the propery buyers in Puchong end...who had initially thought that the bridge link could contribute greatly to the values of their properties...

But now seems to Orchi that...they got screwed! Oh well...

i guess the link issue is a marketing scheme that created by the developers for their sales target at the begining ... n now they don wan to keep the promised ...with all sort of excuse (bla...bla ...) ... the Gamuda issue also help to provide a good reason for them to cover their back ....

there are 'pros' n 'cons' for having or not having the link ... but seems like that's won be the issue anymore .....

Ahhhh..bruder Allurban! You seriously think those commercial contributors are going to put their money to build a "small light bridge"? But however small, it will still cost you millions becos you still need all the pilings etc.

And are you serious about a pedestrian bridge? You know the distance to even walk across from Puchong to Giant or from USJ 1 to Tesco? And the heat! This is no England where one would find it extremely exhuberant walking around even in summer!

Private security at the bridge? Who's going to pay for it? MPSJ? You know its never going to happen. And I can imagine all the snatch thieves waiting at either end of the pedestrian bridge.......

You are partly right. Yes, many would press both buttons. Then when the lift stop, they would ask if the lift was going up or down. They would only go in IF it's going up. Most dont even ask. They just point a finger upwards to ask!

Pity the USJ 1 folks lah!!let's hope so...because once that link is built, it becomes part of the Subang-Kajang expressway!

That means, our roads become part of the Subang-Kajang expressway...

Remember, that incomplete road in USJ 1 (or is it 7) that forces you to make those strange turns...it is supposed to be completed soon...

So if that road in completed and the USj1-Tesco Link is built...maaaaaaajor increase in traffic on Pers. Kewajipan!

Now...if they had extended that Subang-Kelana link through USJ1 and down to Puchong...then it might not be so bad...let the traffic travel above ground, with perhaps 1 ramp to USJ and ramps directly to KESAS and the Federal Highway......so no huge increase in traffic on USJ roads....

Actually, that's a good idea! Right now I can't see any unsurmountable issues with it...go to Pers. Kewajipan by the 3K complex...the link is designed to end at Pers. Kewajipan. The ramp will come down in the middle of the road, driving traffic straight into the Summit interchange jam.

With the current design, there is no way it can be extended without closing the link and redesigning it...

On the other hand...there is a minor possibility...build the USJ1-Puchong link up to the KESAS highway and link it to the KESAS highway....instead of the Subang Kelana link...

Traffic will then be able to bypass USJ...if a driver wants to go into USJ they will have to use the Summit interchange from KESAS...if the current bottleneck at the interchange can be reduced (I have got a plan for this) and then things will be a little bit better....

Or we can just build the "Aerorail"

Or if they had planned it right...build the elevated highway and a suspended monorail underneath...a great way to link USJ and Puchong...
