Residents in my housing area are crying foul over the proposed construction of MRT.  Apparently the proposed 'TTDI Station' will be built  in front of their houses.  The map says so!

MRT Route

The proposed station would be built on the stretch of Sprint-Jalan Damansara Highway, in front of Jalan SS 20/10 in Damansara Utama and the TTDI Fire Brigade.  It is reasonably big.  Obviously it would be an eye-sore and the noise would be unbearable to these residents.

According to the plan, staff parking would also be built on Jalan SS 20/10.  That is indeed in front of a row of terrace houses on that road.  We should understand their concern.

Tha authority must be more sensitive and sympathetic to these residents.  A wiser decision would be to move it to the stretch that has no houses; that is the area opposite the TTDI wet market.  It is only a few hundred metres away!
