Yesterday evening at about 6.40pm, after I have exiting the ELITE USJ Toll Plaza. I was greeted with a long queue leading to the T-junction traffic light..

Occassionally, there would be a traffic police stationed there to direct traffic, but there was none there yesterday. What I had observed while queueing up was the short duration of the green light for traffic exiting the ELITE turning right to go into USJ or towards Puchong, the duration was only about 10-15 sec... While the duration was 3x longer for the traffic heading from Puchong to Shah Alam, and the traffic from Shah Alam going USJ/Puchong Bound or turning into USJ Toll Plaza..

To reduce the backlog, the fastest solution is to increase the duration for the green light for those coming out of the Toll Plaza during evening peak hours (6pm - 7.30pm)

Which department is in charge this traffic light?? Who can I direct this complaint to??? MPSJ?? MBSA??? Hannah Yeoh???

I know the other ways too.. Just want observe and see what's the cause, effects and what can be done... This will be a daily occurence if the authority doesn't do anything about it.. Using the tolled supposed to reduce travel time but yet get stuck due to 'not-so-smart' traffic light management that needs human intervention in the form of the men in black & white..

So who to approach for traffic management issue..

Well, I think the jam after the toll is mainly due to two reasons:

1.) Shorter green signal time for traffic light.
2.) There used to be traffic police last time but no more coming presently.

That's what I had observed and posted... But what I'm interested is to know what we can do or approach to have the traffic problems resolved.

err..fabe ah, first u must understand the traffic problem there, if the traffic from kesas puchong to n fro Shah Alam is also high then changing the traffic time will not sove the problem as u only divert the traffic jam to kesas rather than elite (or is it plus :confused: ), then u ned to built fly over or under.

That area should be under YB Teresa Kok, get her at

from my 30 minutes of observation, the cars from Puchong to Shah Alam has more time to go past the traffic light, and at some point, very few cars... And the green light for those from the Toll Plaza was around 10 sec.. Enuf only for about 10 cars per lane... And then has to wait for close to 2 minutes for the next turn...

Maybe I should time and chart it next time.....
