Subang Jaya exit should remain as two lanes, says Yeoh

THE Malaysian Highway Authority (MHA) has been urged to stop narrowing the two-lane exit from Subang Jaya to the Federal Highway.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh said the ongoing road work near Glenmarie in Shah Alam had reduced the exit to only one lane.
“It has created traffic congestion in the morning as the exit is one of the main access roads for Subang Jaya residents to get out of the township.
“I have received many complaints from the residents last Thursday and Friday regarding the road work,” she said.
Yeoh added that she had highlighted the matter to Seri Setia assemblyman Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, who was coordinating with the Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) to supervise the work.
“According to mayor Datuk Mohd Jaafar Mohd Atan, the road work falls under MHA, since it is on the Federal Highway.
“MHA should not narrow the road since it affects thousands of Subang Jaya residents in the morning,” she said.
Yeoh added MBSA should brief the Subang Jaya Municipal Council, on the traffic plan for the new development.
“It seems that there would be criss-crossing of traffic especially motorists heading towards the development and those from Subang Jaya,” she said.

It's been 1 hour since I left home at USJ Heights and I have not even reached SS19. The jam is horrible!

My husband left USJ17 at 720am and reached Sunway College at 840am. Crazy jam. NPE also looked like car park this morning. What cause it? Who own the new Shell station near the Subang Jaya exit?

we retirees who gather at casablanca coffeeshop in usj4 for breakfast hv noticed how bad the jams are in the morning. it used to be quite clear before 9am. since the subang jaya-federal highway barrier was erected, the jam only clears after 9.30am. pity the office workers. how long more they need to undergo such stress before a solution is found? the jams are also affecting people within subang jaya. say there's an emergency but the trip to hospital that normally takes 15 mins now takes more than an hour?
