KUALA LUMPUR: Road upgrading will be carried out in Bangsar to ease the traffic congestion in the area, Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said.

He said the upgrading programme would include providing additional lanes from Jalan Maarof to Jalan Bangsar, improving public transport services and providing strategically located parking areas.

“The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will conduct a study on the development plans so that it won’t inconvenience the 20,000 people living around Bangsar who have faced this problem for 15 years,” he told reporters after meeting Bangsar residents’ representative, here Friday.

The study, to be completed in two to three weeks, would take into account each approved development, he said.

Meanwhile, the ministry would meet Petronas to discuss the possibility of providing a special schedule for taxi drivers to fill their natural gas vehicles to prevent traffic congestion during certain period of the day in the area, he said.

On the redevelopment plan for Kampung Baru, Raja Nong Chik said the Kampung Baru Development Corporation Bill would be tabled to Parliament next month.

“While the bill is being tabled, the ministry will meet the Kampung Baru residents to get their feedback,” he added.
