Traffic congestion along Jalan Balakong may ease if a flyover is built from Jalan Sungai Long right up to the end of Jalan Balakong without entering Pekan Batu 11.
Kajang municipal councillor Lee Ah Seng said he would submit a proposal to the council in the hope of ending the traffic congestion that had plagued the area for more than 10 years.
“The flyover will connect motorists from Sungai Long and Kajang straight to the Silk Highway without the hassle of going through Jalan Balakong which is congested almost all the time during the day for the past 10 years. This has to end.
“Jalan Balakong is also in bad condition but fixing it would only be a temporary solution. We have to look at the future,” he said at the press conference attended by Serdang MP Teo Nie Ching and Public Works Department (JKR) officers recently.
Lee also highlighted a few other problems along that stretch of road.
Among others, the drains on both sides of the road are clogged and causes floods during downpours.
“Some parts of the drains have collapsed too, posing great danger to motorists.
“The drains are also not covered and has caused many pedestrians to fall into it accidentally.
“We have asked JKR to upgrade the drains and place concrete covers. It will not only prevent pedestrians from falling but also stop them from throwing rubbish into it,” he added.
