Noise barriers for DASH highway

PETALING JAYA (Oct 24): Noise barriers will be constructed “along certain sections” of the Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH) following complaints by residents nearby.

Highway concessionaire Projek Lintasan Damansara-Shah Alam (Prolintas) said in a statement “this was among measures planned” to deal with the complaints, reported Free Malaysia Today (FMT).

Prolintas added that “it would monitor the environmental impact assessment (EIA) requirements to ensure the wellbeing of all stakeholders”, reported the news portal.

“All parameters such as noise level, air and water quality will be carried out regularly until completion,” said the company.

The report also stated that the highway concessionaire has already “installed a countdown timer at the main traffic light at Jalan PJU8/1 and has allowed traffic to make a right turn into the LDP/SPRINT highways from PJU7/1, Mutiara Damansara, to ease traffic congestion”.

Prolintas explained it is “carrying out some of the work late at night to reduce traffic congestion”.

FMT reported earlier this week that residents have complained that work is taking place too close to the Metropolitan Square condominium, with the sound of cranes and loud hammering going on early in the morning.

“I have to come down and scold the construction workers every now and then, just for them to stop their work and allow people to sleep,” a resident told the news portal.
