MBPJ one-way Seksyen 1-01

To improve traffic flow and reduce congestion during peak hours at the commercial and residential area in Seksyen 1 of PJ Old Town, a number of changes will take effect, come Wednesday, March 16, The Sun Daily reports. According to Bukit Gasing assemblyman Rajiv Rishyakaran, banners and signages have been put up earlier this month at four locations to inform the public of this.

Changes will see a section of Jalan 1/10 and 1/19 converted into a one-way road (nearby Heng Kee Bak Kut Teh and Soon Lee coffee shop). Road users who want to turn into Jalan 1/14 will need to take the first junction of Jalan 1/14, as they will not be allowed to use the second turn off.

Meanwhile, Jalan Dispensary (Jalan 2/38) and Jalan 1/18 will likewise be converted into a one-way road as well. Road users on Jalan 1/12 who want to go to Jalan Othman need to turn off at the junction after C&S Restaurant or after Medan Selera Jati.

Rajiv also said that road dividers are being considered at Jalan Pasar 1/21 to prevent double-parking on that stretch and to restrain motorists from turning in Jalan 2/38. Similarly, a U-turning is also under consideration at the Jalan Othman traffic light to ease traffic congestion. Both matters have yet to be finalised as they are still being mulled over by the city council.

He urged the public and motorists not to make any judgment about the move in the first or second week of its implementation as all changes or policies will take time to be adapted by everyone.
