New Parking Lots for Sri Tanjung Apartments


SUBANG JAYA, 24 Dec: For 11 years, shortage of parking spaces and narrow streets at Sri Tanjung Apartments at SS 16, have not only been the residents complaints but it also threatens their security.

In November, the Chairman of the Sri Tanjung Apartment Residents Association Mohd Nizam Abdullah said that there was a fire at one of the apartment units.

Because residents have been forced to double-park their cars, fire engines were not able to enter their area.

“However, we are thankful as there were no casualties resulting from the incident,” he explained this morning at the press conference here.

Finally, under the policy of attentiveness, the Selangor Government has contributed more than RM253,000 to build a new parking area for the apartment.

That amount is 80 percent of the total cost of RM317,000 for the facility.

In addition to the State Government’s contribution, funds have also been obtained from the Management Committee apart from RM5,000 which was received through personal contributions from Senior Executive Councillor, Teresa Kok, who is also the Kinrara Assemblywoman.

Previously, the apartments only provided 650 parking lots although it has a thousand residential units and 28 commercial units.

Now, a new parking area will be built on the site of a children’s playground and is estimated to accommodate 216 cars and 450 motorcycles at a time.

“We will have to move the playground and split the into two due to lack of space.

“Of course, the problem cannot be fully resolved, however we are relived that at least parking congestion can be reduced,” he added.

Also present at the press conference were Senior State Government Executive Councillor Teresa Kok, Puchong MP, Gobind Singh, Subang Jaya SS16 Senior Police Officer Azman Md Zain and MPSJ Council Member, Cheah Sang Soon.

Teresa who is also the Kinrara Assemblywoman took the opportunity to donate school bags to 30 children from Seri Tanjung Apartments.
