PUTRAJAYA: TTDI Residents
should consider the advantages of having the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system
in their housing areas.
Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Chor Chee Heung said the MRT
would ensure the smooth movement of people in the city, especially with the
ever-growing population of the Klang Valley.
“Instead of opposing the project, they should look at it positively as there
are many advantages to having good public transportation at one’s doorstep.
“My ministry is also doing its part by providing the public with information
on how the MRT system will benefit them,” he told reporters after witnessing
the presentation of 309 vehicles, worth RM413mil to the Fire and Rescue
Chor was asked to comment on the objections raised by residents of Taman Tun
Dr Ismail (TTDI) in Kuala Lumpur against the proposed MRT.
Some residents claimed the project would turn their residential area into a
'living hell' with non-stop traffic jams.
They claimed the MRT trains would create noise pollution while the pillars
would be an eyesore during a dialogue with the Land Public Transport
Commission (LPTC) recently.
Asked if the TTDI residents were being selfish, Chor said: “Maybe they
objected because they don’t realise the advantages of the MRT.”
