Speed Deterrent : Jalan Serindit 1-Persiaran Wawasan New Link

The Pusat Bandar Puchong RA brought to JKP 16's attention of vehicle speeding while coming out from the new link approaching Persiaran Wawasan. This is because Persiaran Wawasan is a fairly straight and wide road with downhill gradient. This posed a danger to traffic coming out from Jalan Wawasan 4/12 (where Sri Penanga, D'Palma and Seraka aparments located) who turn left into Persiaran Wawasan. Similarly vehicles coming from Persiaran Wawasan who want to turn right into Jalan Wawasan 4/12 will have to lookout for speeding vehicles coming from this new link.

Before (without road hump and thermoplastic markings):

The RA and JKP 16 have been working closely for the past few weeks seeking MPSJ's assistance to construct a road hump and mark thermoplastic yellow lines on the strecth leading to road hump. The road hump and thermoplastic yellow lines would act as an effective speed deterrent.

Today 6 Nov 2008, the road hump is constructed, finally painted with yellow stripes and thermoplastic yellow lines also marked on the strecth before hump. JKP members were at the site today and observed that drivers slowed down while approaching and going over the hump, thus improving road safety.

Thank you to MPSJ for their kind assistance in constructing the road hump and thermoplastic yellow marking.
