New interchange to ease traffic flow in Seri Kembangan
By JAROD LIM
SERI KEMBANGAN residents can look forward to a new interchange at the Maju Expressway (MEX) or formerly known as the KL-Putrajaya Highway to ease traffic flow in the area.
The interchange that will be built from Jalan Putra Permai to MEX in Seri Kembangan had already been approved by the Cabinet earlier this month.
Serdang MCA chairman Datuk Liew Yuen Keong said Health Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and Works Minister Datuk Seri Shaziman Abu Mansor would jointly make an announcement at the project site next week.
“The ministers will come to the site to reveal the project’s construction details which include the starting date of construction and how long it will take to complete,” he told a press conference recently.
“The interchange that is estimated to cost RM90mil will benefit around 100,000 residents occupying more than 50,000 houses in Seri Kembangan, Bandar Putra Permai and Puchong,” he said.
“With the coming MEX interchange, it will take residents only 20 minutes to drive to KL compared to about 45 minutes now,” he said.
Liew added that when the highway was planned, Bandar Putra Permai had yet to be developed. The area was caught in a traffic snarl after the highway was completed in 2007.
Liew, who was back then the Seri Kembangan assemblyman had already proposed the interchange to be be built to alleviate traffic congestions.
MEX is a 26km expressway connecting Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and KLIA.
On a separate issue, Liew also suggested the Selangor government to put up a detailed plan of the proposed construction ring road along Jalan Besar, Seri Kembangan.
“The detailed changes to the main road that had existed for more than 60 years should be put up to notify the shop owners along the road and get their opinions about the said changes,” he said.
He added that the RM36mil project would only solve traffic congestions in the area where the ring road was built, but will not entirely prevent the existing bottleneck at the further part of the road.
