    USJ 1 - LDP/IOI Mall toll-free road

    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...89&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.

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.



    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.



    “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.



    “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.

    since he mentioned that his office had been inundated with calls from Puchong Residents.

    Err...dear Chief...TQ for the timely reminder...

    Orchi suggests to ALL USJ residents n their respective representatives...to swamp his freaking office...NOT by making some freaking phone calls...BUT by showing up there before him...personally...to ask him...what he freaking meant...n WHAT freaking basis did he used...by saying that...


    "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."

    "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)."

    Ahem...this is how Orchi gonna shout TO: Puchong MP Lau Yeng Peng...in his face...

    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?

    Hear this, he speaks not for us!

    I think the person who wrote has a very "shallow thought" and probably hibernating at home most of the time.

    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. Please lah.......we are not unreasonable people. We can talk about your USJ3 link road if you can make just 3 suggestions to solve our traffic congestion problem. And if you cant, please stop buzzing around for god sake.

    No point asking him to give 3 suggestions lah. Ppl like them will give u the same 3 excuses they hv been using: For cars only. (No lorries and industrial vehicles); better connectivity; reduce traffic jam in Subang. It is for their own selfish reasons only to hv such selfish thinking.

    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?

    We take on all-comers

    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.
