Taman Puncak Jalil residents feel that their area is being neglected by the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) despite several complaints on various problems.
Its residents association president, Zainuddin Zainal, said the stretch of Persiaran Puncak Jalil 2 near a petrol station, which was paved with cement, had cracked and the metal bars were exposed.
“The pavement was built less than a year ago and now cracks have appeared. We want a long-term solution and not shoddy work.
“It is our hope the MPSJ will consider repairing the whole road instead of patching the holes every now and then,” he said.
The residents added that the road had a high volume of traffic as it led to other residential areas such as Taman Pinggiran Putra, Equine Park and Taman Lestari Putra.
Taman Puncak Jalil alone has about 8,000 houses.
“Motorists travelling on the road risk having their tyres punctured and rims damaged,” Zainuddin said.
He said they had also complained about a slanting streetlight pole at the junction on the access road linking Sirim Bhd to the Bukit Jalil Highway, but MPSJ decided to remove it instead.
“It is dangerous not to have a streelight in the area,” he added.
Zainuddin said other complaints included the lack of directional signboards to Taman Puncak Jalil because similar ones had been erected in other areas.
The association also asked MPSJ to build road humps, build a fence around a water retention pond in Jalan Puncak Jalil 7 and increase the green time at the traffic lights in Persiaran Puncak Jalil 1.
The complaints and requests were forwarded to the MPSJ president in July 2008 and MPSJ councillor Noor Azam Abd Aziz this April.
“We did not receive any feedback from them. They should at least inform us if our requests cannot be met,” Zainuddin said.
He added that the residents were taxpayers, too, and they wanted better facilities.
A resident,, Mohd Sham Aziz, said unlike Subang Jaya, Taman Puncak Jalil was not equipped with many facilities, such as road signages guiding motorists to the area.
“For seven years, we have been explaining to our visitors how to get to our area,” he said.
