A group of Petaling Jaya and Puchong residents comprising professionals in engineering, urban design and information technology expertise and other professionals have carried out an independent social impact assessment (SIA) regarding the PJD Link. An impressive grand total of 2,501 respondents along the alignment of the proposed highway participated in this survey. The results and key highlights will be shared at the press conference.
Forum: Tolled Elevated Highways: Who Benefits?
After the press conference, a forum (organised by various residents) will commence at 10am wit the title “Tolled Elevated Highways: Who Benefits?”.
This forum will feature experienced finance journalist Emmanuel Samarathisa and public transport researcher Aziff Azuddin to hear more about who really profits from highways such as the PJD Link. The description for the forum is as follows:
The government has been approving a series of elevated highways cutting across the Klang Valley and disrupting the lives and bringing hardship to thousands of residents. But do these highways really benefit the public and who pays for them in the end? What would constructing these highways mean for any plans for an integrated public transport network?
