Heavy vehicle ban to be enforced next year

Postby admin » Thu Dec 27, 2012 4:47 am

To curb the notorious traffic congestion at Persiaran Kewajipan and Persiaran Tujuan, the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) had proposed an order to limit heavy vehicles from plying the main roads during peak hours on weekdays in September

The Road Transport Order (Heavy Vehicle Ban) (Subang Jaya Municipal Council) 2012 is to limit heavy vehicles with a 10,000kg load capacity plying the main roads from 6.30am to 9.30am and from 4.30pm to 7.30pm on weekdays.

However, the order, initially set to be enforced on Oct 20, will only be enforced next year so road users will have a longer grace period to get used to it.

The order mooted by MPSJ under Section 70 (2) of the Road Transport Act 1987 is to also ensure the safety of road users.

Meanwhile, council officers were placed at five key areas, which included Kesas Highway-Summit USJ intersection, Kelana Link, USJ Summit bus stop, SS17 and USJ 21 to monitor traffic.

It was reported that an average of 25 heavy vehicles were using the main roads during peak hours in the five areas daily. Several signboards had been put up to alert motorists.

Most residents were happy that the council had taken measures to address the traffic snarl while some residents’ associations representatives expressed concern that the order was just a temporary solution that would probably cause delay in the completion of Kelana Jaya LRT extension project.

Those caught flouting the order can be slapped with a compound not exceeding RM300; if convicted in court, the offender can be fined a maximum of RM1,000 or be imprisoned for not more than three months, or both.
