A 10-YEAR PETALING JAYA MASTER URBAN TRANSPORTATION AND TRAFFIC PLAN

Petaling Jaya is experiencing one of its most robust, challenging and demanding times. Urban development, modernisation and a steady rise in population growth into the city, have left this once satellite city, with new and unprecedented challenges - keeping the city sustainable while meeting growing development and infrastructure needs.

As traffic congestion becomes a daily bane of PJ residents, the PJ City Council, is glad to announce the setting up of a Technical Committee to intricately study and layout a Master Urban Transportation and Traffic Plan. It is an initiatve which is timely and most relevant for urban planners.

The 1st meeting of this committee was convened on7 July, 2014. The committee comprises of 6 Councillors, Ir Lee Suet Sen (Chairman of Committee), Mr Tang FK, Haji Ghazalie, Ms. Cynthia Gabriel, Mr Jeyaseelan and Mr Halimey. Internal Dept that involved are Engineering and City Planning dept. External agencies which are on board are Suruhanjaya Pengangkutan Awam Darat (SPAD), Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia (LLM), Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad, Ministry of Transportation Malaysia (MOT), Jabatan Kerja Raya Negeri Selangor (JKR), Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL), Majlis Bandaraya Shah Alam (MBSA), Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ), Institute Engineers of Malaysia (IEM), Malaysian Institute of Planners (MIP) and Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS). The Consultant appointed by MBPJ is Professor Ir. Dr. Mohamed Rehan bin Karim of University of Malaya (UM).

With such a vast and wide ranging composition, this committee is entrusted to study and work out a Master Traffic/ Urban Transportation Blue Print for the next 10 years in view of rapid urbanization is happening in PJ.

The objective of the plan is to solve the current traffic congestion in PJ through integration of efficient public transportation with existing highways.

The scope of study is summarized below:
1) System, hierarchy and capacity of roads.

2) Public Transport System

3) Traffic Management system

4) Parking system

5) Non-motorized transportation system (Bicycle, Pedestrian etc.)

All the above studies will be based on Land usage according to the local plans of Rancangan Tempatan Petaling Jaya (RTPJ1 and 2) and Rancangan Kawasan Khas (RKK 13). It will determine the traffic needs for current developments and future developments. It also will include the detail study of traffic intergration for Transit Oriented Development (TOD) in PJ.

Currently, PJ have 5 main highways criss crossing it. ie Federal Highway, Damansara – Puchong Highway (LDP), New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), New Pantai Expressway (NPE) and SPRINT Highway. All highways and local main roads at area of PJS1, Kelana Jaya, SS2, SS3, Damansara Utama, Kota Damansara, Mutiara Damansara and Sri Damansara have reached Level of Service (LOS) of F during Peak hour time.

There are enhancements being taken place to improve the conditions but it is still insufficient for the next 10 years when we want to make PJ a more sustainable and livable city. Thus, this exercise have been embarked to improve the quality of traffic condition in PJ.

We write this statement with the intention to also welcome opinions and suggestions from PJ Residents as this is a Master Plan for everybody. Ultimately, we will aim to work along the concept of “Moving People and not Moving Vehicles” and improve the usage of Public Transportaton (Buses, taxi, MRT, LRT, BRT etc) to minimum of 35% in next 10 years (while currently, the usage is less than 20% nationwide).

Security Scheme South Zone

Security Scheme South Zone: Phase 1 Road SS20/6, 20/8 & 20/9

We refer to our earlier letter dated 29 June 2014. We wish to inform you that after much consideration, observation and deliberation between the committee members and some residents of Road 6, 8 ad 9, we have decided to revised the plan to permanently close Rd 6 exit (adjacent to ТА Securities building). In view of such decision, the timing for the road closure of this exit will be as follows:

11:00 pm to 6:00 am - though this exit will be closed, a guard will be stationed there except when the guard is doing patrolling or needed to cover the other guard in the other exit (near to Rd 11) or attending to personal need or in case of emergency.

We appreciate your consideration, cooperation and understanding on this matter and we sincerely hope for more to participate in our security scheme. The success of our security scheme will definitely be replicated into Phase 2 involving other Roads in South Zone in the near future.

Kindly feel free to speak to any of us in the committee should you have any queries on this matter. Please feel free to contact the security committee via the contact link at duroaseven.wordpress.com


Many thanks and kind regards,
Security Committee.

Many fall for 'legal and personal' sounding tricks
PETALING JAYA: Nigerian scam e-mails and SMSes promising expensive lucky draw prizes used to be the norm but scammers are now opting for “legal and personal” sounding tricks to get gullible folk to part with their money.
Lee, (not her real name) a housewife in Seremban received a call from a man claiming to be a bank representative asking if she had bought jewellery from a store at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
“I said no and he told me to call Bank Negara and gave me a number to call,”

Worse than an epidemic

According to the latest dengue situation update from the World Health Organisation for the Western Pacific region, Malaysia is the only country that registered a substantial increase in dengue cases in the region over the last year. It needs to buck up to combat the dengue virus.

KUALA LUMPUR: NEW methods to stop the spread of dengue, such as genetically modified (GM) mosquitoes and vaccines, are still a long way from being effective, said World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre for Arbovirus Research and Reference director at Universiti Malaya Prof Dr Sazaly Abu Bakar.
Instead, simple tried and tested methods, such as using mosquito netting and wearing light clothing, could lower cases of dengue.
