Prasarana Rail and Infrastructure Projects Sdn Bhd Chief Executive Officer, Dato’ Ir. Zohari Sulaiman, said in a statement: “For the Kelana Jaya Line LRT stations within the jurisdiction of the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ), we have received the support letters from the various agencies, and the One Stop Center (OSC) of MPSJ has accepted, checked, and acknowledged the submission.”

For the remaining three Ampang Line LRT stations which come under the jurisdiction of MPSJ, it has been confirmed that the support letters have been provided by the MPSJ, SYABAS, TNB, IWK and the Fire and Rescue Services Department (Bomba).

MPSJ President Dato’ Nor Hisham Ahmad Dahlan had initially told the media on 24 June 2016 that the council had not approved the Certificate of Completion and Compliance CCC for the LRT stations due to the lack of parking facilities at selected stations.

But Zohari has since clarified that the planning and development of parking facilities at Station 4 (Subang Jaya) and Station 7 (USJ 7) of the Kelana Jaya LRT Line Extension Project, are not included in the approved Building Plan (Pelan Bangunan), and as such, are not part of the CCC for the stations.

For Station 4 and Station 7, the parking facilities were to be provided as part of a larger property development in collaboration with adjacent landowners. Zohari said temporary parking facilities will be supplied.

“We have already developed more than 2,200 motorcar parking bays along the Kelana Jaya Line Extension and will continue to enhance the facilities in and around the LRT stations for the benefit of the people.”
