Former MBPJ councillor Mak Khuin Weng latest to oppose the Kinrara-Damansara Expressway project.
Mak, who is also the president of the Avenue 23 residents association, said that Selangor Menteri Besar Khalid Ibrahim should not be making unilateral decisions
“How can he approving the Kidex project without consulting stakeholders. If this is the case, who is going to stop him from approving other projects without consulting the public?”he asked.
Mak also said that Khalid was simply pushing forward with the Kidex project without giving the public the option of rejecting it.
“Khalid said nothing about the processes or meetings but went on to approve the Kidex project by inserting it to the Selangor State Structure Plan 2035,” said Mah.
To date, DAP MPs Gobing Singh Deo and Tony Pua have come forward to oppose Khalid’s plans, saying that the highway project went against Pakatan Rakyat’s pledge to abolish tolls.
“Put pressure on all sides including the local councils, the state government and the Works Ministry that approved it,” Pua was reported telling the public.
In his area, Mak said that there are about 300 households at Avenue 23 Sunway Damansara and the new highway project would cause heavy pollution to the residents
“We want to see the government’s environmental impact report, traffic impact assessment report and social impact assessment report to analyse how Kidex will affect the public,” he said.
Say No to Kidex pro tem chairman Dr M Mohan welcomed Mak’s support, adding that the former councillor’s participation would add value to their cause.
“He will be an excellent contribution in our move to oppose Kidex,” said Mohan.
