SHAH ALAM, Feb 14 — The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) has placed a 75-metre guard rail to prevent road accidents as well as to reduce traffic congestion in front of the Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Subang Utama.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng Mei Sze said the project, which completed in January, would prevent vehicles from parking at the roadside when dropping off or picking up the students at the school.
“Before this, when the vehicles are parked by the roadside, this does not only pose a danger to the vehicle owners but it is also a risk for the road users on the SS18 stretch. The traffic in the area is usually fast and busy.
“I am grateful that MPSJ had allocated a RM18,000 fund to put up the barrier,” she told the media today.
Earlier, Ng had examined the newly installed guard rail near SMK Subang Jaya. Also present were MPSJ council member Ken Chia and representatives from the school and its Parents and Teachers Association.
