More parking bays in SS18

Newly created parking bays from MARRIS allocation for DUN Subang Jaya

Article in SJ Echo - More Parking Bays in SS18

SIXTY three more parking bays have been added along Jalan Ss18/1B, providing a much needed relief to residents and also shop owners along the stretch.

ADUN Subang Jaya Hannah Yeoh said the shop owners along the road had also requested for a one-way traffic system to be implemented for the two-lane stretch.

“There is a great need for parking space in SS18 especially those fronting the shop houses. My office has also received many requests from residents all over Subang Jaya for their roads to be resurfaced.”

“We need more funds from the State Government in 2012 to do so,” she said after inspecting the new parking bays.

Hannah said for a sum of RM1mil, MPSJ was only able to resurface approximately eight to nine kilometers of road.

“We are presently going on a road to road basis depending on the urgency of the request from residents,” she said.

SS18 TJ House Restaurant owner Jeffrey Tan who was present said the extra parking bays was good as it helped ease the need for space for residents and customers who frequented the row of shop houses in the area.

“Parking space is inadequate especially during the evenings when people come over to dine at the restaurants in this area,” he added.

At the recent State Legislative Assembly sitting, I have requested for more funds to be channelled to MPSJ for repair and/or resurfacing of roads. For more information/explanation on the lack of funds for this purpose, you may click here to find out more.

Fantastic Job Done! I've only heard BN rushing to repair roads before elections but you with hardly much resources and connections managed to do such a splendid job!

Please do not worry too much about parking bays. The bigger problem is that the City Councils are not doing the primary function ie keeping our environment clean and our steets clean. Please focus on that and the parking will take of itself.
