Worry over increasing development in Petaling Jaya

I notice more and more condominiums being built all around Petaling Jaya and Old Klang Road.

I understand people need homes, but have the authorities taken into account the various other needs which come along with such massive development.

For one, our road systems cannot cope and neither can our drainage systems.

This is in the end going to result in much greater flooding and congestion.

While we continue to build more residential lots, we must also ensure all the other facilities are also up to mark.

Since land is already scarce in Petaling Jaya, I wonder how the authorities are going to widen our roads or even improve the drainage.

It is scary to think about the kind of congestion that is going to occur once all these development projects are completed and fully occupied.
