    Tell it to MPSJ Councillor Rajiv - traffic problems

    Mr Rajiv,

    I would like to draw your attention to my post in Impatient drivers at Traffic light junctions. thread concerning turning LEFT into SS19 from USJ where the traffic light and road markings seem to contradict.

    Good point raised. I'll check with MPSJ and will reply on that thread...

    Mr. Rajiv, I have an issue with the right turn on Kemajuan, at the traffic light at Carrefour.

    Since the Subang-Kelana Link Mesiniaga ramp opened up and the population of Casa Tiara and e-tiara has started to grow a lot of traffic has started to build up at this junction.

    A large number of these cars are making u-turns at the junction.

    One solution is to provide a new turning lane and u-turn lane.

    I propose that the right-turn lane be converted to a u-turn lane and then lane 1 (the lane next to the right turn lane) be used for right turns towards the KTM station and Subang Parade.

    This will help reduce the backlog of traffic.

    But there is an additional issue which is the buses and taxies waiting in front of Carrefour....if the waiting area is not designed properly, the buses and taxies will block the road.

    I have long suggested that 1 lane of Jalan Jengka (next to Subang Parade) be made contra-flow and buses be allowed to wait there (instead of in front of Carrefour).

    If this happens, it will reduce traffic congestion at this traffic light junction and make it a lot safer.

    Cheers, m

    and also the No entry into Jalan Kemajuan once exited from Carrefour. Why can't the developer build a connecting road into Kemajuan underneath the flyover before Mesinniaga?

    not to mention that many people run across the road in front of that flyover....a very unsafe situation.

    But it should be the council that takes action...they can bill the developer afterwards.

    Traffic Bottleneck at Psrn Kewajipan

    Hi Rajiv,

    Can you let me know if there is anything being done to alleviate the congestion at the Psrn Kewajipan Flyover (Summit).

    I suspect it will get worse as the USJ area grows.

    thanx

    The left turn to SS19 is free flow, the traffic lights is only for those going straight

    Unfortunately, Persiaran Kewajipan is a JKR road, not MPSJ. I'm continuously pressing for traffic light retiming and even a reduction of phases to ease the congestion. What would also help is u-turns on Kesas, to do away with the right turns

    Hi Rajiv

    Im concerned about the turning from Jalan Kewajipan to Jalan Kemajuan.

    Cars are taking the turn at very high speed and there have been cars spinning out.

    The guardrail is damaged and there is also a bent light pole.

    Plus there is a risk because of cars coming off the federal highway onto Jalan Kemajuan.

    I know Kewajipan is a federal road but it is really important to get signs posted reminding drivers to slow down, that there is a dangerous corner ahead.

    Also, I took note that a sign has been placed at the Carrefour interchange to make it clear that the u-turn is for light vehicles only. But I still think that the right turn lane should be a permanent u-turn lane while the next lane should be used for right turns.

    I was there yesterday and cars were backed up to Mesiniaga.

    Also, what can MPSJ do to get the buses and taxis to cooperate? Taxis are now occupying the bus stop area in front of Carrefour instead of the proper lane that was built for them.

    Cheers, m

    Dear M,

    MPSJ has no power over buses and taxis, I believe you are aware of that. MPSJ has issued summons to taxis parked on the roadsides before, but it doesnt seem to deter them at all... We need to get JPJ to acknowledge our summons and refuse to allow road tax renewal.

    Your ideas for the permanent u-turn etc have been forwarded to the engineering dept, and one site visit has already been made last month. Hope this month's Infra's meeting can make a decision on that, implementation should follow soon after.

There has been a number of accidents, including a fatal one there.
    Hi Rajiv, Why have to 'dash'? That's a symptom of stress level going up. High volume of traffic, coupled with speeding to reduce travel time to beat traffic lights... And hence, that's exactly why
    There needs to be a plan to connect (non-tolled) from Fed H/way to Shah-Alam Express (Kesas) and Hicom Puchong to Shah Alam and Putra Heights and to prevent using P. Kewajipan and P Tujuan becoming Highways or sub-super highways (without interupting the internal traffic flows within SJ/USJ areas)

    But, to wait for the tolls to be abolished will probably not happen in the next 5 years at the rate the Federal Garmen is going... Some action will need to be taken by the local council in it's planning.
    It will be the hope of residents here in SJ and USJ to see that the stress level of the roads in SJ/USJ be brought lower rather than allow it to escalate in the coming years. Hope your good office can help represent us highlite this to the MPSJ Council.

    Any one will support this?

    With the price of petrol and toll going up, anyone here support this? If you do, then let us collectively urge our MPSJ counsellors to help bring this up. Let us all do our part and support this call, will you?

    Hi Ivan,

    I guess we agree on the problem description. And theoretically, you are on the right track is coming out with the solution. I know having a connecting will definitely help with the traffic on Kewajipan/Tujuan.

    If you have an idea that can actually be one, without bulldozing thru houses, do let me know, I'll be happy to consider it.
