Remember the thread regarding the 'illegal' bridge linking Subang Heights into USJ through USJ 3ABCD (Persiaran Setia)? I can't seem to find therefore I start this new thread.
If you have noticed, there are a lot of roadworks going on in front of USJ 12 school. A pedestrian bridge is being erected for the schoolchildren while the road dividers are being narrowed. Why is this divider being narrowed? Just to inform you that Sime is making 3 lanes on each side of the road from the school right through Persiaran Setia (USJ 3 ABCD) until the new flyover. The residents have protested against this and several hearings were called several years ago. We (the residents) just managed to prolong the opening of this bridge to SubangHeights and not long from now, this bridge will open. Can you imagine the amount of new traffic that will come into USJ from Shah Alam? The already long jam in the morning along Pesiran Tujuan right until the Federal Highway is causing residents of USJ massive headache and now with this new traffic volume...I leave it to you to judge. Who will use this flyover? Those from Shah Alam intending to go to Puchong, Sunway or Alam Megah will use this as an alternative to bypass the jammed road in front of Proton factory. I just pity those parents in front of the USJ12 school, massive jam is forseen. I am highlighting this so that those who cannot stand long traffic jams to buy a house somewhere else before the bridge opens.

I understand that there is a pedestrian bridge being built to link the school to USJ4 (includes USJ3). At least the students need not cross the 6-lane road in the future.

With all these works underway, you think anyone can block the development? They are already completing the crossing over the Kesas highway.

Phew! Thank God I am out of USJ4... I can imagine a 6-lane highway right behind my old house at USJ4/6G...

But here in Penang also scared of landslide since everyday have to drive along the winding Batu Ferringhi road....

Is there no "pro" at all in this development? All we heard is "cons" only...

Which highway are you guys talking about? If it is the bridge flying over Kesas near USJ Height, I don't see any ramps linking Kesas to that highway.

The flyover is over KESAS and not linking into KESAS. It joins USJ to Subang Heights and USJ heights and Pinggiran USJ.

I understand that there will be a gantry put across the bridge over the Kesas Highway limiting entry to only cars. The monstrous lorries, trucks, trailers and Multi Vehicular Trailers such as those ferrying Proton cars must be prevented from coming over at all cost. The rest of the USJ/SJ residents have done their part that resulted in the developer having to erect the pedestrian bridge and the sound barrier. It is now up to the residents of USD 3 ABCD to see to it. It is still never too late to mitigate the situation.

I disagree... ;-)... The Batu Ferringhi road is such a joy to drive, jammed or not.

haiyo... no matter what age la... cycling when in heavy traffic... one won't die of exhaustion but by inhaling all the carbon monoxide spewed by all those vehicles...

by the way... what irks me everytime when I pick my kids up ~ is to see parents sitting in their cars, blasting their aircon AND with the engine RUNNING... don't they realise that they are slowly poisoning the other [younger] kids that came out earlier... :eek:

IMHO planning is the problem..when they build the school dont they know they shld make an area for pick up? eg bus lane and car lane...cant they used a small part of the school area to make a pick up area...why all these cause problem now. This is typical malaysian, they dont foresee the future...never think about the later part. Me thinks they should go back to school.

Me thinks they should go back to school.

So by consensus, we're towards tolerating more difficult situations where bad planning and implementation adds on to more headaches and problems in the name of progress. Going back to school won't solve the problems. Thats reality in Bolehland unfortunately.

actually, the problem in malaysia is that we have good planning.. Just that sometimes developers pressed their way thru with their mega profit projects.. U can plan all you want but with these developers tangling carrots in front of those with approving authorities, all the planning goes down the drain...

Let's see if the much-hyped anti-corruption commission can do anything about it..

I would strongly disagree on that. We have a miserable planning as well. The process is in most cases behind closed doors, and when development starts the plans are often already faites accomplis.

If a school, for instance, is place smack on the major access road, so that morning peak traffic is channeled through a single lane bottleneck sided by double parkers, like it is in Kinrara and Tropicana (just to mention 2 example out of 100s), it's an error of the planners, not the developers.

We are always told that "it costs too much to have municipal democracy".

I'd say the other way around:

"It costs too much NOT to have municipal democracy".

Only enjoyable to those who likes driving.... ;) Batu Ferringhi -> Teluk Bahang and round the island... ;)Yes, agreed! What a wonderful drive it is.

Yeah!!! Done it many times. In fact done it on bicycle too!Im going to try each mode - bicycle, motorcycle, and mini/suzuki swift!
haiyo... no matter what age la... cycling when in heavy traffic... one won't die of exhaustion but by inhaling all the carbon monoxide spewed by all those vehicles... technically, that is "death by exhaustion"
