UBANG JAYA: Sunway
Group memperuntukkan
sehingga RM130 juta untuk
menaik taraf laluan sesak
sekitar Bandar Sunway,
Subang Jaya dan USJ bagi
memberi keselesaan jangka
panjang kepada penduduk
serta pengguna jalan raya di
kawasan terbabit.
Pengerusinya, Tan Sri

pembangunan di kawasan

adalah sebahagian daripada
tanggungjawab sosial korporat (CSR) syarikat berkenaan
kepada masyarakat.
"Kesesakan di tiga kawasan ini memberi kesan teruk,
terutama pada waktu puncak.
Justeru atas dasar tanggungjawab, saya membuat keputusan
supaya Sunway Group membuat kajian untuk mengenal
pasti cara memperbaiki keadaan itu.
"Berdasarkan kajian dilakukan oleh jurutera kami,
Sunway Group mengenal
pasti beberapa laluan dan
lebuh raya sekitar tiga kawasan ini perlu dinaik taraf bagi
memastikan kelancaran aliran
trafik," katanya pada sidang
akhbar di Menara Sunway di
sini.
Cheah berkata, fasa pertama
naik taraf itu bermula dengan

PUTRAJAVA: Deputy Education Minister Datuk
Dr Wee Ka Siong has lashed out at those who
played politics which has affected a school's
development.
He said their actions had hampered the
progress of building SJK (C) Kheng Chee in
Puchong, Selangor, which had planned to enrol
its first batch of pupils next January.
"Do not play politics when it comes to
school issues. The Education Minister has
already approved the land for the school and
the school's construction committee has been
looking forward to building classrooms for its
opening: he said after chairing the roundtable
meeting with education and Chinese groups to
solve the teacher shortage in Chinese primary
schools.
He was responding to the issue raised by
the SJK (C) Kheng Chee committee concerning
the construction of school buildings as there
was a dispute between the school.and local
authorities.
Puchong MCA division chairman Datuk
Wong Hock Ann said the SJK (C) Kheng Chee
construction committee had received a stopwork cutler from the Subang Jaya Municipal
Council (MPSJ) on March 30.
STAR
MPSJ stated in the notice that the construction of the school at Lot 433, Jalan Wawasan
5/3, Pekan Kinrara had begun without its
approval. They were instructed to stop work
immediately.
We have not started construction of the
school buildings. We were just clearing the
site," said Wong.
Wong said the committee had obtained
approval from the Education Ministry in July
2011 for the construction of the school.
The school had been approved to relocate
from Karak. Pahang, to Pusat Bandar Puchong.
However, he said SJK (T) Castlefield had
disputed the land approval. The school had
sought the same plot of land for itself.
On another topic, Dr Wee said the ministry
was confident that the shortage of teachers in
Chinese vernacular schools could be resolved
effectively.
He said the three-hour roundtable meeting
with five education and Chinese groups yesterday went smoothly.
This was the fourth meeting since a committee was set up to solve the shortage of teachers
in Chinese primary schools.
"I will report the outcome of the meeting to
Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin
who will make a statement on this matter soon,"
he said, declining to elaborate on the details.

HE Pasar Rakyat in Jalan SK6/1 in Seri
Kembangan has finally opened for business after several postponements stretching over a decade.
StarMetro in a report "The relocation war
continues" that appeared on Dec 19, 2009, had
reported that the battle to relocate hawkers
from Jalan Pasar and Jalan Panggung near the
Seri Kembangan market in Jalan Besar had
been going on for more than 10 years.
Some of the vendors who were previously
operating without a licence near the old market site, were pleased to be able to operate
with peace of mind now.
Nasi lemak seller Subaidah Zubairi said she
used to live in fear of enforcement officers taking action against illegal hawkers like herself,
when she was operating without a licence
near the Seri Kembangan market.
"I have received four summonses since I
started selling nasi lemak in 2001, even my
wares were confiscated.
"Previously (at the old place), I sell between
300 and 400 packets of nasi lemak a day. As of
now (9am) at this new place, I've sold about
50% only, we shall see if business is good at this
new place," she said.
New Seri Kembangan
market opens at last
Traders glad they can now run their businesses in peace
Textile vendor Yap Lee Hung is not worried
about losing her customers after relocating to
the new market.
"I will relocate here anyway. I like this place
as it is nearer my house.
"I have informed my regular customers
about the move to this place," she said.
Seri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong
Hian Wah who visited the market yesterday
with Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ)
councillor Chong Hoon Ming, said MPSJ
enforcement officers will monitor the area
near the Seri Kembangan market (Jalan Pasar
and Jalan Panggung) to rid it of illegal hawkers.
Traders pay between RM30 and RM 120
depending on the type of lot they rent.
Ean Yong said: "Vendors have to pay rent on
the first Monday of each month. As a main
meter is shared by several stalls, vendors are
encouraged to install a sub-meter and pay
their electricity bill to the person in charge."
He warned food stall owners (whose stalls
are not equipped with electricity) against making their own extensions.
"They can apply for electricity supply from
MPSJ."
According to Ean Yong, there are 266 market
lots, of which 90% have been taken up 88 parking bays.
"There is only 40% occupancy today (yesterday) as some vendors have yet to get their
stalls ready or are still renovating them. The
rest will move soon.
"Market vendors are encouraged to operate
their stalls daily or at least five days a week.
"We may reclaim the lots of those who only
operate for a few days a week. Market vendors
are not allowed to rent out their lots. If they do
not wish to continue their business, they can
return the lots to the council," Ean Yong said.
Asked about the lack of parking spaces, he
said, "If there are insufficient parking bays.
people can park near the shoplots next to the
market."
More to come: Only 40 of the hawkers began operations yesterday as others are still is his midst

bridge
in SS13
The long wait for a
pedestrian bridge across Persiaran
Kewajipan by devotees of three temples in SS13 will soon be over.
Work to build the bridge which
spans the major highway is expected
to commence as early as this week
and expected to be completed by
October.
The cost of the RM1.3 million
bridge is being borne by the Selangor state government.
Devotees of three temples, namely
Sri Vartharaja Perumal Hindu temple, Subang Jaya Buddhist Association and the proposed Gurdwara
Sahib Subang, would soon be able to
park their vehicles in SS14 and cross
Persiaran Kewajipan without the
risk of being run over by vehicles.
Space for motorcycle and bicycle
parting at both ends of the bridge is
also being considered.
Sri Vartharaja Perumal Hindu
temple chairman R. Subramani said:
"We are relieved that this request,
which has been delayed for many
years, is now being fulfilled and our
devotees can soon safely cross the
road for their prayers at the temple."
Subang Jaya Buddhist Association
president Chim Siew Choon also expressed gratitude over the good
news, while Gurdwara Sahib Subang
president Amrick Singh said the
bridge marked a big step forward in
t erms of providing safe and easy acess for temple devotees. Si Echo

Who okayed Subang exit bottleneck?
A regular user of the Federal Highway from
Subang Jaya, I am disgusted at the way in
which the exit onto the highway has been
bottlenecked.
Vertical poles and a kerb to narrow down
the exit to one lane have been put up.
This might make things easier for the
developer of the project just opposite Empire
Gallery, but Subang Jaya and USJ residents
have been greatly inconvenienced.
Now the question is, who gave them the
right to partition the road like that? Before they
went ahead to do so, did the relevant bodies
discuss the matter with the residents and our
rep, Hannah Yeoh?
I hope the Subang Jaya Municipal Council
will look into the matter as our time is
being wasted in massive traffic jams. This is
a long-term matter that affects our
livelihood. The exit should be reconstructed
to free up the lanes to once again facilitate a
smooth flow of traffic onto the Federal
Highway.

Perumal Hindu temple, Subang

the soon-to-be-developed Gurdwara Sahib Subang — would
be able to park their vehicles
in SS14 and use the pedestrian
bridge to get to the temples.
She said more parking space
may be provided for motorcycles and bicycles at both ends
of the pedestrian bridge.
"We will also explore the possibility of upgrading the bridge
to make it disabled-friendly (to
built a ramp) later on when
funds are available," she said.
