A very Good afternoon to fellow residents and guests present this afternoon.
First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dato Idrose and his team, who have come here to provide us the information on the LRT route extension into Subang Jaya. I also like to thank Dato Sri Ong Tee Keat, who take personal interest to be with us this afternoon, to hear and listen to the views of Subang Jaya residents .
This afternoon's get-together and briefing to our community would not have materialized, if not for the support and efforts of the leaders of various community organizations. Thank you for coming together to make it happen.
The idea of having this briefing and dialogue started when I was approached by few residents in May. They wew very anxious to know more about the actual LRT routes in Subang Jaya since they have been hearing several versions of the proposed route and very confused. While the LRT extensioninto Subang Jaya is much awaited, it is only human nature to wonder how this is going to be achieved in Subang Jaya, which is such a mature township with so little open space left for massive development projects. And of course, while the majority will benefit from the availability of LRT to ease our transportation and traffic problems, there are naturally, many anxious residents who are worried how the LRT will affect their property, lives and even livelihood.
Responding to the residents' request, I made several attempts to meet Dato Sri Ong Tee Keat and Dato Idrose on this matter to work out an acceptable plan to provide some early information, such as a prelude to the public display. Indeed, nothing beats hearing from the source itself - Sykt Prasarana. Although I understand this afternoon's session does not mean that the route details is 100% finalised.
I thank both of them for their response in acceding to the need of Subang Jaya residents and I am glad that both of them are now with us this afternoon. I also hope we can all work together in future, to have more community projects of this nature to serve the interests of all residents in Subang Jaya - our Kampong!
I also want to take this opportunity to thank the MC Ms Eileen Cheah, and Moderator Mr. Raymond Tan, who have consented to help out during this event. My appreciation too to Mr. Robert Chan for helping to send out emails and sms to the members of SJ Alert, and many others whom in one way or another, have help to make this event a success; not forgetting volunteers from MCA Kelana Jaya.
Fellow residents, I wish you a most informative and productive session ahead. I hope you will take the opportunity during question time to ask related questions for everybody's benefit.
