The Star ,10 December 2009

THE Shah Alam High Court has fixed March 18, 2010, for the Bandar Utama Residents Association’s (Bura) case against the Bandar Utama City Corporation (BUCC) and the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ).

Judicial Commissioner Datuk Zaleha Yusof fixed the date in chambers on Tuesday.
The residents had filed a writ summons and application for injunction against the defendents from reopening Jalan Tanjung in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya to motorists.

MBPJ was named as the first defendant with BUCC named as second defendant. The Selangor Mentri Besar was named as the first defendant.

Bura was represented by counsel Puthan Perumal while counsel Datuk Harpal Singh appeared for BUCC.

“We informed the judge that BUCC had re-opened the road since Dec 1 to facilitate a traffic study.

“And it was recorded by the court.

“There was no mention of the injunction at all,” said Harpal.

The residents had taken legal action against the defendants after the issue of reopening Jalan Tanjung met a dead end.

Despite their objection, the Selangor Mentri Besar had requested for the road to be reopened to facilitate a traffic study. The developer, BUCC had granted permission to the MBPJ to remove the barricades on Dec 1.
