Concerns Over the PJD Link

Concerns Over the PJD Link

The Petaling Jaya Dispersal Link or PJD LINK is a proposed 34.3 km, 2 lane dual carriageway expressway, which, as per its description, will act as a traffic dispersal for the Petaling Jaya area, and serve as an alternative to traffic congested areas. Fully funded by the private sector without government subsidies, the proposed highway - which will be a tolled one - is also being mooted as a means to stimulate the economy which has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. But there are many who are opposing this proposed highway, including, but not limited to, Petaling Jaya residents and other business owners in the area, who are concerned the highway may bring more problems than solutions. We speak to David Yoong, the Chairman of the The Stakeholders cum Residents Against PJD Link (SCRAP Highway) group, about the concerns PJ residents and other stakeholders have about this proposal, which includes the fact that it may irreversibly change the green landscape of PJ.
