The road from the Loke Yew roundabout heading to Cheras is known to be congested everyday. The highway at Taman Connaught is no better. However, the situation gets worse on Wednesdays, thanks to the pasar malam located at Taman Connaught.
DBKL should relocate the pasar malam to a more suitable location. The current location provides no parking place, which forces people to park along the roadside and in the residential areas causing more congestion.
The new road connecting Taman Alam Damai to MRR2 has just opened providing alternative route for road users from other housing areas in Cheras to go to the KL centre. Due to the increase in the toll rate at the Plaza Phoenix Toll plaza, road users from the housing area in Taman Tun Hussein Onn and other areas have started using the new road from Taman Alam Damai to get to MRR2. This has created more traffic congestion in Taman Alam Damai every morning. The traffic light at the junction heading to MRR2 and Bandar Tun Razak needs to be reprogrammed to cater to the high volume of traffic on that road. The traffic sometimes stretches as far as 2km in Alam Damai every morning. DBKL should be more proactive in tackling these problems. Imagine thousands of Ringgit wasted due to the traffic. Relocating the pasar malam and reprogramming the traffic light sequence would do a world of good.
