    The SCADA system just telemetered the operating parameter of the pipeline system eg. valve status, etc.
    You're right. The pigging software modules are linked to the SCADA systems. Nowadays we hear of 'smart pigs'. 'Smart pigs' do hv their limitations too. I was told that all these 'smart' systems hv difficulty detecting 'small' leaks! Well, perhaps the word 'small' is nothing major & its up to anyone's imagination...

    Total Ignorance!

    This truck was parked on top of the pipeline last Friday (see attached photos I took). Saw driver of the truck with its pillion boarded a waiting car across the road, apparently going for lunch (it was abt 12:50pm at that time).

    I am sure this truck (with crane on top it) weighs more than the limit allowed to pass over the pipeline, what more stopping on top of it!

    Hi there,

    Thank you for the pixs. It is rather unfortunate that PGB had indicated that there are no weight limits on road crossings over their pipelines. They had refused to elaborate further when I questioned them on why Jln Usaha had a 5 tonne limit. I believe that based on our situation at Jln Setia, the authorities (incl. PGB) have all the reasons to hide the truth from us. I'm sure we all know why...

    Anyhow, houses built less than 20m away from the pipelines (EIA std should be 80m) remains as an unanswered question . PGB indicated that they are not responsible for building homes - thats all! So, it is now up to us to imagine the consequences...

    Perhaps, it is safe lah! This is how I see it when the majority living closeby the pipelines don't seem to have any reaction towards it. I just thank God that my house is not near the pipelines...

    Look at MPSJ expertise...Good..everytime ppl renovate...they will charge bins...What if the MPSJ renovate their brains? (think-tanks) They won't lose anything..and not just focus on cement kerbs..cement encasing for traffic lights n etc..

    That would make taxpayer willingly pay assessment 4 their efforts..

    After that, they should also be able to judge very well the distance of houses AND highways located too near to the pipelines..
    WheRe aRt ThOu?!

    Err buddies...heard recently that there may be a tussle going on between the affected developers...over at Subang Heights...on which parties are supposed to pay more for the costs of constructing proposed flyover bridge project which may cost like RM30 millions(or was it RM50 millions?)...or who gets to pay less...or something like that...which was highly objected by thousands of the affected residents of USJ 3ABCD...n USJ in general.

    Selangor okays Subang flyover
    by Maria J. Dass

    SUBANG JAYA: The controversial Batu Tiga-USJ 3 flyover link has been approved by the Selangor government.
    Additional features have been incorporated into the project, taking into account the residents' concerns with noise pollution, intrusion of heavy vehicles from Batu Tiga and the safety of students of nearby schools.

    These include a sound barrier, a pedestrian bridge for the school in USJ 12 and a gantry to prevent heavy vehicles from using the route.

    Subang Jaya Municipal Council president Datuk Mohd Arif Ab Rahman said the link will also be connected to the Kesas Highway.

    "Motorists from USJ 3 can get on and off the Kesas Highway, while those from USJ 19 (sic) can get onto the highway but will not have access from the highway to USJ 19 (sic)," he said after the council's March full board meeting.


    The flyover linking Subang Heights and USJ Heights to Persiaran Tujuan received fierce opposition from USJ 3 residents, who are nearest to the link.

    The residents said the link would add to traffic woes in Subang Jaya and affect their quality of life.

    However, Subang Heights residents welcomed the additional link to their present, and only, access road to Batu Tiga.

    Several other residents in Subang Jaya also felt that the link would be an additional access road and traffic dispersal system to reduce the infamous traffic congestion in their township.

    USJ-Batu Tiga flyover to be built as planned

    Dharmender Singh at the Subang jaya municipal council full board meeting

    THE proposed flyover linking USJ 3A, B, C and D to Batu Tiga in Shah Alam will be built as planned.

    Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) president Datuk Mohd Arif Abdul Rahman said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo, had decided that the project would go on but with additional works to safeguard the interests of the affected residents.

    He said the project would now include a sound barrier and a pedestrian bridge near the schools in USJ 12.

    He said a gantry would be placed at both the USJ 3 and Batu Tiga ends of the flyover to prevent heavy vehicles from using it while three ramps would be built to connect Persiaran Tujuan to the Shah Alam Expressway (SAE).

    “With the ramps motorists heading towards the Federal Highway along Persiaran Tujuan will be able to enter the SAE and head towards Shah Alam while vehicles from Seri Petaling along the SAE will be able to head up into Persiaran Tujuan to head towards the USJ areas.

    “Those travelling from the direction of the Federal Highway along Persiaran Tujuan too will be able to join the SAE and head towards Seri Petaling,” he said.

    He said the link to the SAE from Persiaran Tujuan would help disperser traffic along the stretch and any increase in traffic volume resulting from the USJ 3-Batu Tiga link.


    It was reported in StarMetro on March 9 that residents in USJ 3A, B, C and D did not want the RM20mil flyover as it cause congestion along Persiaran Setia that has already a heavy traffic flow currently.

    They were also concerned about the safety of USJ 12 school students and noise pollution as homes at USJ 3D would only be 15-18m away from the proposed link.

    The council held three public hearing sessions and used the reasons for objection from the residents to prepare a paper that was submitted to the state government for a decision.

    Mohd Arif said the council did not have the details of when work would begin or how long it would take as yet.
    Dear Subang folks,

    I am pleased to announce to all Subang folks that our township will be innundated with more traffic and thereby causing you all untold inconveniences with heavier traffic jams than experienced now. Your schoolchildren studying at the USJ 12 and USJ 4 schools will face ever more dangers frm the increased traffic, both frm passenger and heavy vehicles. The Batu Tiga flyover would begin construction soon. But thats not the shocker. In approving the project, the MB imposed 3 explicit conditions (highlighted in red in the above media articles) to safeguard the safety and interests of Subang residents for the project to go ahead:
    1) that pedestrian bridges would be built near USJ 12 schools
    2) gantries to be built to prevent heavy vehicles frm the Batu 3 industrial areas frm utilising Persiaran Setia which crosses a trans-peninsular main gas pipeline and flow into the already congested Persiaran Tujuan
    3) that additional ramps will be constructed at the Tujuan flyover into Kesas at SS19 to further disperse expected increase in traffic frm the new Batu 3 flyover.


    Shocker #1: Pls do note that the above 3 pre-conditions imposed by the MB will not materialise at all, meaning they will not be built!

    Shocker #2: At the public hearing, it was stated that Subang Heights developer, Berjaya Properties, had paid for its share of the flyover costs. It is now revealed that Berjaya has refused to pay for its share but Sime UEP will still carry on with the flyover as an access to their sizeable new properties at Batu 3 side. And now since Sime has to bear the costs alone for the flyover, MPSJ will not impose on them the 3 earlier conditions set by the MB for the flyover approval. The reason? It will be too costly for Sime UEP!!!

    Is the MB's word not worth its weight? and i'm getting the feeling that this new YDP is not resident/ratepayer friendly. projects are being bulldozed thru without thought given to residents' concerns, dormant projects suddenly gets a new lease of life ala Subang Ria, state services not up to mark and enforcement non-existent, by-laws and statutes not adhered to, and the might of a giant incumbent developer could so easily sway MPSJ to 'new opportunities'. So, whats next, YDP? the Top Speed condo at USJ11 to be revived and approved in the quiet?? yea, LA21 indeed...

    Folks, we are being screwed! happy traffic-jamming and tell ur kids to watch out for that speeding truck...

    I thought there is currently some disagreement of the cost sharing between Berjaya and SIME thus the project was stalled??? Has either of the party compromise on the sharing??

    Can we confirm this & highlight it to the press? Looks like "NO" LA21, govt (represented by polliticians) & local council can help the people if "the unseen " have already decided to go ahead with their "plans".

    Our only hope is via the press - that also depends on whether it was interesting enough for them to do so....

    Do We still hv anymore RIGHTS in our own country???

    the MB did not uplift the conditions. its the developer who is sidestepping them on the basis of the prohibitive cost of the conditions...
