Damaged road upsets shoplot owners

By Lim Chia Ying

STAR    03

Enough is enough!  

This is the sentiment echoed by shoplot owners in Lagoon Perdana, Bandar Sunway, who could no longer tolerate using the pothole-riddled access road of Jalan PJS 9/1. 

Together with Kelana Jaya MP Loh Seng Kok, whose service centre is located in the area, they have sought the help and attention of the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to put an end to their woes. 

The four-lane road, which had been tarred in the past by the previous developer, was badly affected earlier this year after the council allowed new developers to use one side (two lanes) of the road as their main access route to carry construction materials into their site. A number of lorries and trucks had been using the road frequently on a daily basis.  

“Lately several developers have been engaged in construction work near the area, spoiling the road so much until you can’t see the tarred road anymore.  

Pothole-riddled: The badly affected access road of Jalan PJS 9/1 in Lagoon Perdana, Bandar Sunway.

“Many people here have suffered enough, which was why I called the MPSJ president Adnan Md Ikhsan to look into this matter,” said Loh. 

Adnan, claimed Loh, had issued a stop-work order to five companies, which meant the affected companies had to cease all work with immediate effect until they have resurfaced and carried out maintenance on the road. 

“Since MPSJ had allowed these companies to use the road earlier, what we want now is for these companies to maintain the road from time to time, and run crusher run stones over the potholes to make the road compact again. 

“It won't suffice to just tar the road because it would likely become bad again after a month,” said Loh. 

He added that he hoped the road near the Lagoon Perdana residential area would also be tarred back since the road served as the main road for residents staying there. 

Adnan, when contacted, confirmed that stop-work order had indeed been issued. However he clarified that the order was more to tackle the issue of hygiene and dust than of the spoilt road. 

“The companies would have to come over here at MPSJ and sign a letter of oath that states that they will look into the cleanliness aspect of the place as it is very dusty now. 

“Only after they have signed (the letter), we would allow them to continue their operations.  

“It’s their responsibility to rectify the situation and we will make sure they deliver their promise,” he said.  

On the affected road, Adnan said he still allowed the companies to use it since not many motorists used the area. 

“Moreover, there are two other lanes which people could still use.”
