Cabinet approves access road to Mex
By OH ING YEEN
THE Cabinet has agreed to build an access road to the Maju Expressway (Mex) near Serdang to ease congestion in the area. Motorists going out of Serdang to Kuala Lumpur and Cheras through Jalan Besar are caught in traffic jams daily during peak hours.
Serdang Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Liew Yuen Keong said the Cabinet had agreed in principle to build the link.
"Bandar Putra Permai in Serdang, was still an undeveloped area when it was planned in 1992. While there are four exits, currently there is no link to Serdang from the Maju Expressway.
"We have had two meetings with the then works minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.
When the access road to the expressway
was first proposed in 2007, it was estimated to cost RM50mil but now it is
RM90mil," he told reporters at the Serdang MCA office in Bukit Serdang 4.
Wanita MCA secretary-general Senator
Chew Lee Giok said some Serdang
residents go all the way to Puncak Jalil to
get to the expressway.
"An access road to the expressway in
Serdang will ease congestion in the
township," she said. Seri Kembangan Federal Village Security
and Development Committee (JKKKP)
chairman Tang Kim Loy said he would also propose to the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to widen Jalan BS 6. "Many motorists use it to avoid the traffic jam along Jalan Besar to go to work or send their children to SRJK Serdang Baru 1 and SMK Seri Kembangan. "Widening Jalan BS 6 will ease the congestion," he said.
