Motorists still parking illegally at entrance to Bukit Wawasan, Puchong

THE addition of 49 parking bays near the Bukit Wawasan trail entrance in Pusat Bandar Puchong has not stopped vehicles from parking illegally on the main road.

Taman Wawasan Forest Community (WFC) association chairman Joe Lim said the additional parking would greatly benefit hiking enthusiasts.

“Hopefully, with the new bays, we can resolve issues like double parking near the entrance.

“This could obstruct access for emergency vehicles such as ambulances or fire and rescue teams,” he said.

Ng Ah Sing, 65, who runs a stall near the entrance of the trail, said vehicles were still double parked along Persiaran Bukit.

He said there was a bigger number of visitors last weekend compared to before.

“At least 20 cars were parked irresponsibly, hindering access for larger vehicles like lorries.

“I will seek permission from Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) to place cones to prevent vehicles from parking near the entrance,” said Ng who is also a WFC member.

StarMetro reported that 49 new parking bays were built between Persiaran Bukit and Jalan Wawasan 5/1.

Kinrara assemblyman Ng Sze Han said RM160,000 was allocated for the project.

He said with over 1,000 visitors flocking there every weekend, the need for expanded parking facilities was undeniable.
