Govt urged to consider Petaling Jaya South in MRT proposal

KUALA LUMPUR: The Selangor Petaling Business and Industry Association is requesting that the government consider Petaling Jaya South in the RM43 billion Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) project.

Based on the original proposal, residents in Petaling Jaya may not benefit from the MRT project immediately as there were no MRT lines or stations slated for the Petaling Jaya South area.

"For example, Taman Medan, Taman Maju Jaya and Taman Seri Manja have been left out of the limelight although the area is densely populated," its Deputy President Tee Kee Tian said in a statement on Wednesday, Mar 9.

Tee said Petaling Jaya South provided a very important linkage between Subang Jaya and Sunway via Sungei Way.

"We hope the government can take into account the people's feedback and suggestions, and review the alignment of the MRT to include some stations in Petaling Jaya south so that more people can enjoy the convenience of the mega project," he added.

The government recently disclosed details of the Sungai Buloh-Kajang line and the 51 km line should bring massive economic benefit and employment opportunities. — Bernama
