TRANSIT has been following the Public Display for the extensions of the Kelana Jaya and Ampang LRT lines.
Because of the importance of giving the public a proper voice and help air out concerns for public transport users, TRANSIT has given support to residents of Bandar Sunway, Putra Heights, USJ and Subang Jaya in their efforts to build the best public transport system possible.
We offer our services to residents of other areas who are looking for better public transport – as well as to residents of areas who may have concerns about public transport planning.
In this post, we will list objections, concerns and issues related to the extension of the LRT lines. We encourage everyone to give their feedback and suggestions and comments. We are not necessarily agreeing or disagreeing to any of the comments on postings here. However, TRANSIT will moderate if necessary.
Anyone who wishes to contact TRANSIT for further discussion can simply reply here to this posting or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some Bandar Sunway residents, Sunway City Berhad, Monash University, Sunway University College and Taylor’s University College have collectively expressed their concern that Bandar Sunway is not going to be included in the LRT extension project and will be bypassed by both lines.
Putra Heights & Subang Alam (Updated with photos of the tour of the proposed ROW through Putra Heights)
Some residents of Putra Heights have expressed their concerns over the routing of the Kelana Jaya LRT line extension along the power line between Putra Heights & Subang Alam Megah.
Subang Jaya SS16 Saujana Residency
Some residents of the Saujana Residency project have expressed their concern over the routing of the Kelana Jaya LRT extension between their condominium and the neighbouring project, the Empire Subang.
Subang Jaya SS14 & SS18
Some residents of SS14 and SS18 in Subang Jaya have expressed their concern that the proposed station 6 along the Kelana Jaya LRT line extension is located too close to the padang at SS18/4. They are also concerned about traffic congestion and indiscriminate parking in their areas.
Some residents of USJ have expressed the concern that the Kelana Jaya line extension project has too many stations and the trip from USJ to KL will take too long.
The Ad-Hoc committee is now trying to get more formal feedback from the residents of Subang Jaya and USJ.
You should see banners on the overhead bridges on Pers. Kewajipan and Pers. Tujuan as well as at the proposed sites of the stations.
The work of the committee was also reported in the Star and other newspapers.
