The Star ,11 December 2009
JALAN Tanjung in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, which has been opened one way to motorists from Tropicana to Bandar Utama, is expected to be turned into a public road.
On Wednesday, the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) put up a signboard near the SJKC Damansara announcing the proposal to to turn it into a public road.
Members of the public who would like to submit their objections could do so during the 30-day objection period between Dec 7 and Jan 5.
The road connecting Bandar Utama to Tropicana and its surrounding areas was closed on Nov 16 by the Bandar Utama City Corporation because a piece of land in front of the 1-Tech Park was owned by them.
Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim had ordered the road to be reopened one-way for 14 days to ease traffic congestion and to facilitate a traffic study.
The council said it would make a statement on this issue after a meeting between mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman and the mentri besar yesterday.
A spokesman from the Bandar Utama City Corporation said they would close the road on Dec 15, in accordance with the agreement with MBPJ.
