BBRAeNEWS No.91 - They Dare To Dream.
They Dare To Dream.
On 30th March,2009 a good resident Encik Azli ask in the BBRAeNEWS No.85 whether he dares to dream about the Persiaran Botanic round-about opening up.
Well, it is no longer a dream any more. It has become a reality and the developer after the BBRA-TMO-MPK-Police Tour of the Lake Meeting on 28th March,09 , has finally realize the sensibility of this access and listens to the wishes of the residents of Bandar Botanic. This morning I took some pictures of the excess from Botanic to Jaya Jusco. The road from the Bandar Botanic to the Jaya Jesco has been opened. The excess from Jaya Jusco to Botanic round-about would be opened up after some road constructions. This was one of the issue discussed in the Meeting.
The Tour of the Lake Meeting started at about 1030 am in the morning at TMO Office at Ambang Botanic with a Close Door Discussions. After the Close Door Discussions which ends at about 1.30pm, TMO provided some buggy rides to all the participants from 1.40pm to 2.30pm to visit the various sites discussed. The meeting was a success.
This time, for the Tour of the Lake Discussions, BBRA Committee came fully and professionally prepared, with me preparing in advance (10 booklets x 15 pages each) containing a total of 45 pictures each booklet of the Bandar Botanic regions, each with a brief descriptions besides each picture. As I cannot attend the meeting due to my unapproved annual leave, this is my small contribution.
The followings were discussed and brought up. In the words of Mr John Lim:
John Lim said... We had a good meeting with MPK, TMO, Police, Alam Flora. Many issues were brought up for discussion under 4 main headings,
3. Alam Flora
The point to note is that we are aware of who is responsible for what. As such, we can monitor the performance of the parties concern. As actions speaks louder that words, BBRA will ensure the implementation of the issues discussed.To be fair to the various parties, they did do their share of responsibilities abit not publicized.
Environment: the lake is TMO to maintain until the propose handover end of this year.
Landscape/grass cutting is MPK and we dish out the infrequency (contracted t do so twice monthly), clean up after cutting, replanting, maintaining of dead and dying plants, etc. MPK acknowledge that some of its contractor are not doing their job and BBRA is to be the watch-dog to inform them and contractor payment will be withhold.
Amenities under TMO such lightnings, curb will be handled by them.
Playground is under MPK and yearly they spent millions to repair in Klang. Budget is tight but due to wear and tear, yes.
Vandalism - tough lah. More tong sampah (40 I think).
Patrolling by the police - Pondok Polis to open end of April. Vacant land to get horded to, provision for lorries to park outside of the housing area, etc, etc.
Blocks to prevent illegal u-turn at the dual-carriage way. Open the road to and coming from JJ.
Nursery entrance to be relocated.
IWk to do the conceal drainage cleaning. Also the filters to the park now under TMO, MPK know the points and will handle after it handover. Notice, end of the lake at Phase 6, it is so clean. Used to have thick layer of oil and debris but TMO clean it up for our tour. Yeap, TMO boleh!
Gentlemen, I must thank the committees for handling the questions with me. We went into the specific and ascertain who is responsible for what. We do not want general or random questioning that go no where and no one is pin pointed as responsible. My colleagues concluded this is the best meeting with the authorities we have had. Now, action plan. With this minutes, if no implementation we will go to higher authorities.
(Committee Member Mr Jacob Thomas is still processing the Minutes of the Meeting. It will be handed over to the various authorities for acknowledgement and acceptance. Once the Authorities acknowledged, BBRA will post it up immediately.)
