Elevated highway? what for? Encouraging people to drive smoothly to the administration centre instead of taking the mass transit? Or to facilitate the tuns and datos to travel smoothly into KL for their own whims and fancies, so that they can get off work at 3pm and dine in a "fine establishment" downtown KL? In my opinion, another gross example of wasted public funds, just like the proposed LRT in Putrajaya, especially when so much of Malaysia needs repairing and upgrade.

The only solution for all these... sack the "one" who's responsible for all these flaws... I don't care if he even roars in Sg. Siput...

I just have to agree with you this time about the Elevated highway....
First class expressways are everywhere, particularly in the Klang Valley, we are not in shortage of highways including the putrajaya. In fact I strongly think we need to significantly reduce the cars and the highways by converting them into exclusive for mass modern buses/taxis use only and then implementing the high congestion charge. It is completely pointless to think they can solve other cities' traffic, if they can't even solve the capital's problems. The KL metro system is never a priority and it actually desperately in need fund for additional expansion, and there is a soon to be completed metro system to join putrajaya and the rest of the Klang valley. Yes the current ERL rail express service is ridiculously expensive, so I believe the highways cash would be more appropriate to spend on subsidizing the ordinary commuters in the capital.
Maybe the MPs and the datuk-datin favour to drive then taking the metro rail to shop/parliment's service in the downtown. Afterall they are just Malaysian. They might think they're the master and the men or women of very important than ordinary people! ..... this would certainly contribute to their properties market value at the expense of the environment.

This is the only highway project that I totally object especially given the proximity of the highway to the houses. I've been following this saga since day one and it is very disheartening to see our minister turning a blind eye to the issue

I actually have no problem with the highway initially as I've studied the alignment and the ROW of the highway because it would no doubt relieve the traffic in certain highways heading south. However this highway should have turn-offs and interchanges at certain points (like Jalan Loke Yew and TPM) to be considered an effective traffic solution. But if they do not then I think this is a totally waste of money. There is a benefit of doubt but we shouldn't write off the original proposal as yet as I haven't seen the current alignment as yet

Completely agree. Putrajaya is already a project fraught with impunity and this damn highway is designed to complement it. These bunch of incompetent officers will continue to feed their appetite with more luxuries using taxpayers money while being grossly indifferent to the infrastructure of other cities that badly needs upgrading. I wonder how long they can sustain treating the population like a bunch of idiots

Let's us all try at least to understand the entire scope of this project before jumping into the anti-Putrajaya (or at least the anti-Putrajaya Highway) camp. How many of you guys actually do know the actual alignment of the project? If you must criticise at least make it a constructive one lah

Reallignment will be near impossible. Mayb they hv to suggest to built underpass highway on that section. That's would eliminate many safety concerns. In my view, whether it is a waste project or not, we still hv to build this one day. Perhaps here, we need to pay for the high price of d past blunders here. Somethg must be done to minimize the impact of the highway to the residents, but not a halt to the project.

Id love to be the owners of those houses right now....

Sigh...I lived on Pers. Kewajipan in Subang Jaya near SJMC until December 06...the construction of the Subang Kelana elevated link chased me out of that neighbourhood

Now I live in a house where I can look over the highway, instead of having the highway look over my house....

Sigh/.....

Cheers, m

Hopefully when it opens, we don't hear any cars jumping from the highway to the houses.That would be a disaster or as an act of stupidity knowing that's going to happen.Who is to blame if this thing happen?Gov or driver?

Besides providing sound proof wall, the operator must create a buffer zone along this stretch by limiting the speed too.
