As both road run parallel, we suggested that this be implemented at the same time. As Persiaran Kewajipan is under JKR jurisdiction, the request has been forwarded to JKR (thru JKR Daerah Petaling, who is a member of MPSJ Infrastructure Meeting). The decision by JKR Federal is still pending on this matter. In the coming months, if there is still no reply from JKR, MPSJ may go ahead to implement this on Persiaran Tujuan first.
Recently, we received news from PLUS, that in their bid to reduce congestion on their highways, they would also be implementing a ban on heavy vehicles. Details did appear in the newspapers ago, and yesterday afternoon PLUS officials gave a briefing to MPSJ:
- Implementation will be from 6:30am to 9:30am during weekdays
- From Sg Buluh to Bukit Lanjan on North South Highway,
- From Jln Duta toll to Shah Alam Toll on NKVE
- From Batu Tiga to Klang on Federal Highway
One thing for sure with this, is that Subang Jaya would suffer a little. Heavy vehicles to and from Port Klang - Petaling Jaya & Kuala Lumpur can't use Federal Highway portion from Batu Tiga to Klang, thus they are likely to use Kesas to Subang Jaya, and connect to Federal Highway using Persiaran Kewajipan. This would increase traffic flow on the already congested Persiaran Kewajipaan, but the extend of this would only been seen in the coming weeks.
