THE missing link between Puchong Hartamas and Bandar Puteri Puchong has been opened to motorists after a delay of four months.
The 300m link, initiated by the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) to connect the two residential areas, was to be opened in June. It was delayed because of to several reasons, including technical.
“Now that the road is open, motorists can have shorter access to the main road, especially the Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong (LDP).
“It also provides an easier access to residents from Puchong Hartamas and Bandar Puteri Puchong,” said Kinrara assemblyman Teresa Kok during the road’s official opening on Saturday.
Present at the event were Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo and MPSJ president Datuk Adnan Mohd Ikhsan.
Teresa said the road provided an alternative for motorists plying the area and hoped it would reduce the congestion.
Also, Teresa said the authority was doing its best to ensure residents had the road access they wanted, including missing links in their areas.
She said there were several areas left unconnected due to various reasons.
“One of the main reasons is that the parties involved can’t seem to reach an agreement on the construction of the links.

She urged residents affected by the situation to continue putting pressure on authorities to push for projects.
