Residents and visitors who were issued summonses for parking along Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 4 in Taman Tun Dr Ismail from last month to early this month can write in to City Hall's legal department to ask for their summonses to be cancelled. Motorists who have been parking since April along this road were issued summonses for parking at a no-parking zone. However, they were unaware that the 50 parking bays there had been changed into a no-parking zone in April. They also did not notice that the parking bays had been tarred over and a yellow line, stretching the length of the road, had been painted on to indicate the no-parking area.
After protest from residents early this month, City Hall's investigation found that the conversion was done illegally. City Hall has since instructed the responsible party to convert the no parking zone back into parking bays.
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said he queried City Hall over the conversion of the parking bays. "I was informed on Wednesday by City Hall's Road Transport Department director Dr Leong Siew Mun that the conversion of the parking bays to no-parking was done without the council's consent. "The contractor of Sinaran TTDI condominium in Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 4 had illegally changed the status of the road to a no-parking zone. "We would like to know what action will be taken against the contractor for converting the road to a no-parking area," he said. Lim also said that City Hall shouldn't burden those who were issued summonses to write in to City Hall's legal department seeking to have their summonses cancelled. He said that the summonses should be cancelled automatically. "It is not the mistake of the residents and visitors who parked at Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 4, which always had many parking bays. "Why should they have to writein to City Hall when it is clearly not their f ault? "It is the duty of the council to ensure that such incidents do not happen," he said.
TTDI resident Jim Sia, 50, who travels daily to the area to shop was shocked to find a summons on his vehicle last month. "We have been coming here for years and the parking bays have never been converted into a noparking zone. "It is not fair, therefore, to be issued with summonses. "We hope City Hall will cancel our summonses so that we're not blacklisted by the authorities," he said.
Another resident Ng Ah Hoi, 57, said that all roads and parking bays should be monitored by the council. "City Hall has admitted that this was the contractor's doing and that it has rectified the issue. "We hope the council will be more diligent in carrying out their duties from on," he said.
