STOP The Over-Development In The Surrounding Areas Of Taman Len Seng, Taman Connaught & Alam Damai !
We are petitioning against the over-development at areas surrounding Taman Len Seng, Taman Connaught, Alam Damai and nearby areas in Cheras.
Over the last few years, in anticipation of the now fully completed MRT station next to Cheras Sentral Mall, DBKL have approved numerous high rise and mixed developments in the surrounding areas of Taman Len Seng, Taman Connaught and Alam Damai. This has contributed to an increase in population and traffic, while reducing available space. The traffic conditions and congestions, especially along Persiaran Alam Damai and Jalan 3/144a which are the main entry points into Taman Len Seng and many other ‘Tamans’ around this area, as well as the exit point to KL, has been steadily worsening over the last couple of years.
The numerous developments in high density residential areas have negatively impacted the quality of life among residents, who now have to live with daily traffic jams around our ‘Tamans’. The situation is now at risk of getting worse with the sight of areas earmarked for potential development, and with at least seven high rise - residential (total approx. 5,762 units) and mixed developments - under construction within the Taman Connaught-Taman Len Seng-Alam Damai area, while the state of road conditions and entry/exit points have not improved.
Please sign this petition to help us send a strong message to the local authorities (such as DBKL) to:
- Stop approving any new development projects in this area until the situation is fully assessed, and solutions put in place to resolve the worsening traffic conditions.
- Review all new projects approved or pending approval, and stop those that have been approved illegally (or not in accordance to the law).
- Plan for better road infrastructure and accessibility around the affected areas.
We will also seek the assistance of local MP(s) to support us in our cause. The success of this petition will definitely serve as an example for residence in other areas who are suffering like us to campaign for similar petitions.
