DAMANSARA Idaman residents want the traffic situation in their area solved before the Damansara-Tropicana link is opened.
Damansara Idaman Owners and Residents Association (Diora) president Wan Annuar Wan Mohd Noor said they wanted a solution instead of letting people suffer.
Diora had filed an injunction against the developer from opening the road in May.
Wan Annuar was speaking after a meeting with the stakeholders, developer, consultant and Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) on Thursday.
The session was chaired by councillor Khairul Anuar Ahmad Zainuddin.
Wan Annuar added that the meeting was a step in the right direction as it was important to address the concerns of the residents.
“I think it will be better if everyone walks the talk. We do not want to be worse off than before,” he said.
Tropicana Residents Association chairman Mohamed Shukri Zain wanted to know the macro-traffic impact study before the Ara Damansara-Tropicana link was opened.
He said they wanted to know if the road could take the volume of the cars.
“We are not against the road but we want to see solutions. It is best if the problems are fixed before the link is opened,” he said.
Councillor Khairul Anuar said the meeting was a platform for them to listen to the grievances and find out why the residents were opposing the link.
“We have the macro study on the traffic flow for Ara Damansara and Tropicana as well as the 17 projects and the report has addressed most of the concerns,” he said.
He added that they would be having another meeting with the residents to brief them on the 17 projects and traffic report.
