SUBANG JAYA: A four-year-long wait for the construction of a pedestrian bridge along Persiaran Kewajipan SS14 is finally over and residents can now cross over the busy road safely.

“People can now cross over safely especially the little children from SS15 low-cost flats,  they can now use the bridge to get to their school on the other side of the road,” said Subang Jaya assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh.

She explained that this bridge will help deter residents running across the busy Persiaran Kewajipan, at the Summit interchange.

Yeoh also pointed out that the bridge will fully benefit members of the Subang Jaya Buddhist Association, Sri Varatharajah Perumal Hindu Temple and the Persatuan Sikh Subang during festivals and other occasions.

“There is limited parking space here and it’s always jammed up. So now the members and other people can park their cars across the road and use the bridge,” she said.

Also present was Public Works Department (PWD) Selangor head Abdullah Abdul Rahman and Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim who launched the bridge and said only RM1.3 million was spent for this project through the open tender process.

“This will not be possible without the open tender as in the past some pedestrian bridges cost RM3 million... we can build two already with that money,” he said.

Khalid hopes this value-for-money project will be a model that other future projects can follow and urged PWD to ensure the bridge is well maintained.
