RESIDENTS of Kiambang apartments are blaming a road hump situated outside their residence for causing accidents and they hope it can be relocated.
In a press conference, Kiambang JMB chairman Wong Kong said the road hump was placed too near the apartment’s entry point on Jalan SK13/5, Seri Kembangan and urged the local council to move it further down the road.
“The hump was built three years ago; there were no accidents before that. After it was put in place, there were a few accidents involving motorcyclists,” he said.
Wong agreed that while the road hump was aimed at slowing down traffic for the safety of road users, it was too near the entrance of the apartment.
“The road in front of the apartment has heavy traffic during peak hours as there is a school (SMK Seri Kembangan) nearby,” he said.
The JMB had written a letter to the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) last year highlighting the matter.
Serdang Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Liew Yuen Keong, who was at the press conference, echoed Wong’s sentiments.
“I agree that there should be a road hump but it should not be placed too near the apartment’s entrance.”
He added he had complained to the Seri Kembangan assemblyman and local councils but to no avail.
“We told the service centre staff more than two years ago but there was no action taken. We spoke to the service centre’s chief of staff Thong Kim Fatt recently but still nothing has been done.”
When contacted, Thong said that when they first received the complaint, he told the residents to write a letter and sign a petition but they failed to do so.
“In Seri Kembangan there has been two cases where people have gotten into accidents due to new road humps.
