THE long and weary wait for an urgently needed link road is finally over for the residents in Puchong, Selangor.
Thanks to former Kinrara assemblyman Dr Kow Cheong Wei, the link road between Bandar Puchong Jaya Selatan and Pusat Bandar Puchong is now completed, although three months behind schedule.
Kow, who was also a former Subang Jaya Municipal Councillor, had initiated the project during his term.
He was invited to officially open the road last Friday although the road was ready for use since June 30.
The 0.3km two-way 6m wide road links Jalan Serindit in Bandar Puchong Jaya Selatan and Persiaran Wawasan in Pusat Bandar Puchong.
Kow said besides easing the traffic on the congested Dama-nsara-Puchong Highway (LDP) during peak hours, the road could also hopefully help to enhance the economic life at the two Puchong townships and also Bandar Puteri Puchong.
“The businesses are moving towards Bandar Puteri Puchong now as the road access is inconvenient here in Bandar Puchong Jaya,” he said.
The new link will also serve as an emergency gateway to neighbouring areas when the LDP is jammed whenever there are serious accidents.
Kow said the MPSJ would wait for the road to stabilised before building road shoulders.
Meanwhile, IOI Properties is said to be constructing a link road between Puchong Hartamas and Bandar Puteri Puchong.
