SHAH ALAM - Expanding mobility, addressing flooding and promoting sustainable living are among Parti Keadilan Rakyat's (PKR) efforts in the Selangor state to improve the quality of life of the people.

Lembah Jaya assemblyman Syed Ahmad Syed Abdul Rahman Alhadad or better known as Altimet said the Selangor Mobility Programme, specifically the Demand Responsive Transit (DRT) initiative, which began in Petaling Jaya (PJ) was now extending to Ampang.

"We are involved in the programme especially DRT. It started with PJ, Ampang and it would cover more into Lembah Jaya," he told Sinar Daily.

Altimet said flood prevention has been a major concern for the community, but positive changes have been observed.

He said since 2021, there have not been any significant signs of flooding in Lembah Jaya.

He attributed the improvement in the constituency to proactive measures and effective collaboration with the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council.

Regarding the issue of fallen trees, he said he was actively collaborating with the local council to find ways to resolve the matter.

He emphasised his ongoing commitment to maintaining and enhancing infrastructure to prevent future incidents.

Another key focus, he said was the East Klang Valley Expressway (EKVE) project, which, despite its potential benefits, has caused traffic congestion in some areas.

"We are trying to expedite the EKVE construction. The ongoing works are causing traffic in some particular areas, resulting in congestion that shouldn't be there.

"Although it's a pivotal endeavor, it would be better if we could finish the construction early," he said adding that accelerating the completion of the project was essential to minimise disruptions and improve overall traffic flow.

Commenting further, Altimet said sustainable living and job opportunities remained central to PKR's agenda, particularly for the younger generation.

"We are working together to address concerns related to sustainable living, careers and job opportunities. These efforts are crucial in shaping a better future for our youth," he said.
