SUBANG JAYA: MCA Kelana Jaya division chairman Ong Chong Swen visited traders and shoppers at the SS15 wet market here recently to listen to their grouses firsthand.

 

She and members of her entourage distributed calendars and informed the public about her new service centre here.

Traders took advantage of her visit to voice their problems, including such matters as a faulty sink that was not repaired despite numerous complaints.

Another complaint was that a manhole with a temporary cover was posing a hazard to the public.

"Though it is not deep, it poses a threat as somebody's legs could get caught in between the metal bars."

A woman trader at the market lost her temper and went on a tirade about how leaking pipes above her vegetable stall for the last couple of months had been causing her distress. Complaints, she said, had fallen on deaf ears.

The hawker centre on the upper floor of the market is virtually deserted and only a few stalls are doing business.

"This is because many customers, especially the elderly, don't like to walk up a long flight of stairs and there are plenty of eateries around the area.

"Cultural activities or a different concept may be needed to attract customers to eat there," said Lee You Hin, the state MCA Youth vice-chairman who was part of Ong's entourage.

A woman civil servant who declined to be named tipped Ong off about illegal traders from China who were selling jeans, jade products, cockroach poison and other items without licences at the market.



Even though complaints had been lodged, nothing was done to put a stop to their activities, she added.

Another shopper said he hoped street lights at the nearby KTM station could be repaired.

"Presently, many of the lights are not working or are not switched on. I am worried for the safety of women using the commuter station."

A shopper suggested that a pedestrian bridge be built to link the KTM station to the Carrefour shopping centre.

Ong, who is also the MCA Kelana Jaya division Wanita chairman, said this was a good idea and if it could not be done, at least speed humps be placed to prevent accidents.



She and Lee said they would submit all their grievances to the Subang Jaya Municipal Council next week.

Ong's new service centre is located at 39-2, Jalan USJ 1/1A, Pusat Perdagangan Regalia, 47620 Subang Jaya, Selangor.

The service centre can be contacted at 03-80235598 or fax 03-80235604.
