SUBANG JAYA: Some USJ6 residents are concerned over the problems that could arise when the light trail transit (LRT) line in their neighbourhood starts operating in 2014.
USJ6 Residents Association committee member Yunus Ismail said residents were not happy about the fact that the stations would only be 20 metres away from their homes.
Yunus called on the authorities to install soundproof walls to minimise noise pollution.
"We are worried that the public will park indiscriminately in our neighbourhood," he said.
Representatives of the group met Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh recently to highlight the issue.
"They want Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd to provide enough parking lots at the stations. Prasarana has agreed to provide 600 parking lots at Station 7," she added.
"During a recent public dialogue session, residents said they wanted Prasarana to stop doing construction work on Sundays. I hope that request will be attended to."
Yeoh said she hoped there would be feeder buses serving the neighbourhood when the LRT starts operating.
"We need feeder buses to curb traffic congestion," she added.
Many trees were chopped to make way for the construction of the LRT system. Yeoh asked Prasarana to replace each tree with 10 new ones.
Regarding a recent public complaint over potholes and uneven roads because of the construction work in Jalan SS14/1, Yeoh said, the public would have to bear with some inconvenience.
She expressed the hope that the roads that were dug up would be resurfaced upon the completion of the project.
