Residents sure surveyor report will favour them - The Star


The Bandar Mahkota Cheras Open Access Road Committee is confident the outcome of today's meeting at the Kajang Municipal Council (MPKj) will be in its favour.

At a press conference yesterday, independent surveyor Khoo Leong Hok pointed out that the barricade demolished on April 21 was erected outside the Malaysian Highway Authority road reserve. Khoo had volunteered his services to the committee.

Seri Kembangan assemblyman Ean Yong Hian Wah produced a letter from the Hulu Langat Land Office that stated the land originally belonged to Bandar Mahkota Cheras developer Narajaya Sdn Bhd because it was obtained through land acquisition as detailed in the Government Circular No 1007, dated May 27, 2003. The road was subsequently delivered to the council.

Last week, Selangor State Local Government, Study and Research Committee chairman Ronnie Liu gave the surveyor on the council's panel another week to present a report on who had the right of way, Bandar Mahkota Cheras or Cheras-Kajang highway concessionaire Grand Saga Sdn Bhd. Another surveyor was appointed by the panel to provide a fair perspective on the matter.

The toll-free access road has been the subject of controversy between both parties since Grand Saga closed the road in 2005.
