    The mother/father of jam frequents Jl Kewajipan ?

    It seems to me that these gridlock condition happens much more frequently at the Kewajipan roundabout after the opening of the new link or is it that everyone is leaving earlier because of the fasting month contributing to the snarl starting in the early afternoon.

    Could it be what Patrick was hoping to be proven wrong turns out to be 100% right this time around compounded by these inflexible unresponsive traffic controller at work at Kesas and Summit junction....

    Whatever the reason maybe, the capacity and flow system is not efficient yet, in my opinion.

    Personally, I feel, it would be better to make the flow as one way system, hence junctions are eliminated and sufficient U turn are provided for motorist who needs to cross to the other direction.

    I used the new link for the first time last week when I came down and stayed at the Summit. I notice that those cars descending from the flyover runs all over the place left and right to wherever they are going without giving two hoots to those coming from behind them on the ground level... scary man... this slows down the traffic thus holding up those coming from further back.

    They should have double line so that these cars don't criss-cross like the exit point of a pit stop in the formula 1 racetrack...

    you really think so.... most drivers don't care nowadays...

    today - I kena another 'finger' for stopping and letting a kid cross the road to USJ13 secondary school... plus,
    on the way to pick up my kid from school, i (inadvertedly] ended up tailing behind a very slow police car [WPN 5***], driving slowly and while driving, the fellas inside the patrol car would glance at the cars in the next lane... for obvious reasons... next thing you know, they actually drove THROUGH a RED LIGHT, much to the shock and amusement of all the drivers, kiri kanan depan belakang...

    If cops couldn't care less... how then!!

    I actually called the balai polis in USJ8 but hung up - cos' even if I spoke to the OIC - I wonder if they'd bother...

    The place is even worse now even the so called promise or assumption that it would help Subang Jaya is rubbish. The company even said it is under Federal control and has no obligation to inform local govt on its opening or the other promises of bridges.

    Cars are speeding. Jams are worse at SS13 and SS14 and criss crossing. The same is at SDMC.

    That is why I wonder when the new SDMC extension happens this would be worse!

    Again....the LRT promise. Does it really help us when even the buses are half past six? Are we again to be cowed?

    With such a big land bank behind Putra Heights, don't it make some economic sense for SDMC to move out of Subang Jaya? On second thought, better not. They will build a shopping mall or high rise condo in its place....

    The jam is aggravated by the trucks parked along the road just after Summit Hotel especially in the late evenings. Many a times when I took the Airport Road back to USJ, the jam started when I came down from the ramp which is caused by the trucks parked along the road. Appreciate the relevant authority to act. Cheers!

    There will never be a remedy to ease traffic jams. There are already too many roads and higways and junctions to cope up with the heavy volume of traffic going through SJ/USJ.
    Just live with it. Get rid of your cars and no more traffic jam. You cant have it both ways.
    Is there the same problem on Sundays?

    The jams are bad going into the Summit infamous gridlock after the flyover. It's because the flyover is bringing in vehicles much faster and as they descend the flyover in front of the 3K complex they are still speeding. I was caught in a bad jam yesterday with cars coming from the left from Sunway trying to get into the centre lanes and the vehicles from the flyover descending into the mass of traffic. Being in the middle of Jalan Kewajipan and coming from the SJMC roundabout we can hardly move! Even if the fly-over is extended and ends in front of the Summit area, the jams are still going to be there. It will only solve the dispersal of traffic FROM Summit area into the Federal Highway and not into Subang.

    The traffic is backlogged into Sunway. Those cars from Sunway heading towards the roundabout are stuck and this causes jam up to the front of Sunway Pyramid.
    A wise man refrains from talking but a fool utters rubbish.

    SJ has become a traffic hub/exchange for puchong, kota kemuning, bukit rimau, putra heights, bandar botani klang, etc.

    The traffic in front of Sunway Pyramid where 5 lanes becomes 2-3 lanes before the metropolitan roundabout make it worse.

    Yes .... The gridlock is worse this time around as it stretches all the way to pyramid thus rendering all vehicle using NPE unable to cross over to ss15 and beyond.
    The metropolitan roundabout have more vehicle now as some will exit the link via the SDMC slipway. Since the roundabout is gridlocked , none would be able to turn right to ss15.

    I did notice from SS19 that the traffic on Kesas highway turning right to summit at the Kesas interchange from Shah Alam is low.
    Has the traffic light timing being twiddle to give more time to this than kewajipan...?

    What has happen to the claim , if my memory not failing me yet , by Kesas that they have the most advance traffic control system when the Kesas highway open... ?
