Just like the length of our fingers, I forsee 5 different groups of people will react differently and for obvious reasons.
Those living along this stretch whether immediate or a bit further in will not mind travelling the extra mile in order to have sanity throughtout the day and night.
Those who operate a business here where their customers or clients are mostly the residents of this vicinity will also support the partial closure so long as the intra traffic is still 2 ways
Those who occasionally or infrequently use this stretch will generally be indifferent to the partial closure. In fact, they will support it if they patronise the commercial areas frequently as it becomes safer at the killer junction of USJ 17 and USJ 16
Those who use this stretch as a short cut to Jalan Tujuan and onwards (eg those staying in USJ 6) will object strongly as they do not wished to be inconvenient to travel the extra mile. They couldn't be bothered who die in between.
Those whose businesses depend on the Non residents who are the short cutters though their contributions to their revenue may not be substantial but in business the Ringgit is King. Their crave will outweigh whatever social responsibilty these business outlets have - if they ever have it in the first place. So you can expect this group to not only strongly object but as things are happening, they have been instigating the Sri Tanjung Flats residents to join their bandwagon by misleading them.
This commercial group are only a handful but because they are very vocal and can throw names, MPSJ has kowtowed to them by removing the barrier hardly 36 hours after erecting it. With Pak Lah on board on board as our new PM and with his stern warning about "apple polishing" we sincerely hope the MPSJ will have the balls to make a decison which is fair to the people. Mind you, there are two state seats (Subang Jaya and Kinrara) at stake in this area. Thus, the voice of the people should be louder than the corporate people. I would just like to remind the korporat to be aware that we are their customers as well. We know that majority are in favour of this partial closure in the name of SAFETY. The current stuation, if left unchecked can only get worse. The New Pantai Expressway will be dumping the city traffic at our doorstep and Jalan Usaha will act as a very nice conduit to Shah Alam and Puchong and KLIA
