Besides, the RA also plays a significant role in shaping a civil society, to promote harmonious neighbourhood.

Ahli Majlis MPSepang YB En Mohd Ridzuan Basri merangkap Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Perunding Penduduk (JPP) bagi kawasan Taman Putra Prima/ Taman Mas telah membuat lawatan tapak ke Taman Putra Prima pada petang hari ini untuk memeriksa dan memantau 2 buah bonggol jalan yang baru siap dibina oleh majlis di persimpangan Jalan Putra Prima Utara dan pintu masuk utama Fasa 8A.
Lawatan beliau turut bersama dengan 2 orang AJK JPP iaitu En Zawawi dan En Kong untuk meninjau keadaan lalu lintas di kawasan tersebut ekoran 2 buah bonggol sudah siap dibina. Jelas kelihatan kenderaan sudah perlahan dan diharapan bonggol ini dapat mengurangkan kemalangan lalu-lintas di kawasan ini.
Disamping itu, mereka juga melawat kerja-kerja landscape, cadangan pembersihan parit dan kerja pembersihan semak samun yang masih belum dilaksanakan. Tidak ketinggalan juga memantau tempat pencerobohan kawasan rezab oleh golongan yang tidak berkerjasama dan tidak mematuhi undang-undang. Menurut Ahli Majlis, pihat JPP akan merujuk perkara ini ke unit penguatkuasa untuk tindakan seterusnya.
Parking near junctions (Rule 243) being one piece of advice stating: ‘DO NOT stop or park opposite or within 10 metres (32 feet) of a junction, except in an authorised parking space’. Almost all of us have parked within 10 metres of a junction at some point and as can be seen by observing car parking habits around us, many people park too close on a daily basis.
So why is it illegal to park close to a junction?
As seen in the image to the right, the yellow vehicle is attempting to turn right out of the junction. The green car is obscured from the yellow cars view by the two vehicles that are parked too close to the junction. The red shaded area illustrates the drivers view of the road, by which time they are some distance into the road.
Other instances where it can prove dangerous to park close to a junction are for pedestrians crossing the road. Junctions are typically crossing areas for pedestrians. Children, wheelchair users and the elderly are particularly vulnerable when attempting to cross due to vehicles being obscured that may be turning into the junction. You must also consider unhindered access for the emergency services.
Other potential issues to consider are located at small and narrow residential streets where larger vehicles need access for deliveries. It’s not uncommon for vehicle owners to discover damage on a corner of their vehicle that’s parked close to a junction, often due to a larger vehicle having inadequate space to manoeuvre
Due to excessive vegetation in the corner sight triangle, drivers are not able to see traffic approaching from the left in time to enter or cross the intersection safely.
The residents of TPP8A indeed are very glad that our much sought after G&G Community Scheme has been granted for another 3 years again since it was first approved or established in 2012.
Below are the application flowchart and relevant approval letters from various departments of MPsepang
- OSC approval letter
- Planning department approval (Borang C1)
- Land office approval (Temporary Occupation License TOL)
- Building Permit (2017)
