Residents and visitors in Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) in Kuala Lumpur are upset that the parking bays along Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 4 have been taken away.
C.Y. Sia, who lives in the neighbourhood and frequents the TTDI commercial area almost daily, said there used to be parking bays on both sides of the road but they were replaced by a yellow line about two weeks ago, after the road was resurfaced.
“This is despite the presence of Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) notice board for parking and parking meters. There were no announcements made about the change,” he said.
There are many offices, banks and restaurants located within the Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad commercial area.
The road is located along a new multi-storey residential unit which was completed recently.
Sia said many motorists still paid for the parking coupon and displayed it on their dashboards, but enforcement officers would issue a compound for parking on the yellow line.
TTDI resident Hin Kiang Thi, 64, said the lack of parking in the area was already a big problem and cars would double-and-triple park, especially during working hours.
“There is a lack of enforcement by DBKL and other motorists end up having to squeeze through on the roads with only one lane for traffic left for a two-way flow,” he said.
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said he could not comprehend why DBKL would reduce the number of parking bays in the busy commercial area without any notice.
“I have written to Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail regarding this matter, but have not received any reply so far,” said Lim.
