Motorists who park their cars in Taman Seputeh near the pedestrian bridge which links to Mid Valley Megamall is causing inconvenience to residents in the housing area.
The residents complain that the cars are blocking access to their homes and the authorities are not heeding their complaints.
Housewife Parizad Premjit Abdullah, 50, said the roads near the pedestrian bridge over Jalan Syed Putra were full of cars parked along the yellow lines all day causing traffic obstruction.
The roads affected are Jalan Bukit Raja, Jalan Taman Seputeh 1, Jalan 1/86 and the small lane heading towards the Japan Club Kuala Lumpur.
“The situation is worse during weekends or when the mall is having an exhibition or sales promotion,” she said.
Parizad added the indiscriminate parking would cause difficulty for ambulances or fire engines to access the area during an emergency.
She said the drivers were either shopping or working in the mall and many drove luxury cars.
She added residents were puzzled why the drivers were not parking at the mall because the parking rate was only a few ringgit.
“The roads are also strewn with rubbish every day because of people passing through the area. An Alam Flora worker who sweeps the roads has pleaded with me to do something about the littering problem,” Parizad added.
Retiree Noroz Khan, 59, said the bus stop near the pedestrian bridge in Jalan Syed Putra was also causing congestion because of buses stopping on the road.
Noroz suggested the bus stop be relocated further down the road and that shuttle buses are used to ferry passengers to the mall.
Taman Seputeh Residents Association president Robert Quah said they had already approached the Kuala Lumpur City Hall, police and the Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Minister last year about the issues faced by the residents.
