There are already a few Sekolah Kebangsaan in a 3km radius of Taman Tasik Prima ...(as seen in the attached picture) and only 1 Chinese school (SRJC Han Ming) and 1 Tamil school (SRJT Puching Bt. 14), there definitely is a need for more vernacular schools to be built there. Interestingly, Han Ming was built in 1921 and houses 3’800 students (much higher than the other schools in the area which we have the data for). And as Yak Chee and Catholic High also have a surplus of students and waiting list for its enrollments, the building of their branch schools in the area is logical. Why then does the Education Ministry still insist on rejecting the application from these schools?

PETALING JAYA: Syarikat Prasarana Negara Bhd’s (Prasarana) light rail transit (LRT) extension work for the Ampang Line has progressed to the laying of segmental box girders (SBGs) over the weekend, five days after similar works started for the Kelana Jaya Line’s extension.
Prasarana’s head of section for the Ampang Line facilities Ahmad Kamal Md Yatim said the first 12 SBGs had been successfully put in place and the remaining 6,088 SBGs would be placed over the next two years.
Running a total distance of 17.7km and connecting the current Sri Petaling station to Putra Heights, the extended Ampang Line would have 11 stations with provision for two future stations. The Ampang Line would meet the Kelana Jaya Line at an integrated station in Putra Heights.
“The whole Line Extension Project will serve the community far into the future, hence the two stations – Station 5 and Station 12 – will be developed at a later date,” Kamal said, adding that construction works were progressing well and that the project should be ready as scheduled at the end of 2014.
The Ampang Line, which currently has an average ridership of 350,000 daily, would serve hundreds of thousands more every day once extensions are completed. It will cut travelling time from Putra Heights, located some 25km from Putrajaya and 35km from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, to the city centre to less than an hour.
The LRT line extension projects together with the upgrading of the KL Monorail stations, expansion of its fleet and upgrading of the public bus services, were part of the key initiatives under the National Key Result Areas blueprint entrusted to Prasarana.
Kamal said the tender for Stations 10 and 11, to be located along Persiaran Puchong Perdana, would be called in May.

IJM Land plans to build 3-storey (22x75 & 24x75) houses @ Canal City. This project will occupy more than 800 hectares of land site located at the back of the Kota Kemuning and Kota Permai Golf Course in Shah Alam, Selangor.
PUCHONG has seen a dramatic growth surge in the last three years, attracting dwellers and investors alike, and the area where it is particularly growing rapidly is Bukit Puchong.
With good accessibility via the Lebuhraya Damansara-Puchong, residential projects and businesses — retail, commercial, technology and manufacturing alike — have found a place in and around this area and there are more to come,
As such, those who wish to be part of this new growth escalation should now look towards BP: Newtown, a retail, commercial and residential development project located in the centre of Bukit Puchong. It has been created by Bukit Hitam Development Sdn Bhd, also the developer of Bukit Puchong, as a hub that will link and serve the needs of existing and up-coming developments surrounding the vicinity.
According to Bukit Hitam Development’s general manager Edward Lee, the creation of BP:Newtown is timely and relevant. There are currently at least a dozen premium residential projects circling Bukit Puchong; Taylor’s International School is being built to cater for up to 2,000 students and an international chain of hypermarket is scheduled to open in July this year.
He said, “We are convinced that these are clear indicators that this is where the new growth area is for Puchong and BP: Newtown is a genuinely viable investment opportunity.”
He added, “Puchong has attracted a keen following of middle to high-income households which has generated a strong spending market that will continue to grow and expand in terms of their needs.
“For example, those forming the workforce in the area, professional singles and young families seeking out affordable housing and entrepreneurs looking to develop business opportunities.
“BP: Newtown is designed not only to cater to but also complement these requirements.”
Lee further revealed that half of the initial 62 units of low-rise shop-offices have already been sold during the first month of preview, affirming investors’ confidence in the growth potential of BP:Newtown. Middle to high-end residential products will follow starting with 290 units of serviced suites, for which registration is open.
Subsequently a gated and guarded community of 47 units semi-detached 2.5 storey villas will be introduced.
Evidently BP:Newtown is set not only to landmark Bukit Puchong as the hub and heart of Puchong but also to become the new preference amongst investors and dwellers alike.
BP: Newtown will be at MAPEX until tomorrow at Mid-Valley Exhibition Centre, booth number 1064. There will be a rebate of RM20,000 and complimentary S&P fees for each unit of BP:Newtown three- and four-storey shopoffices purchased during MAPEX*. Registration will also open for BP:Newtown Serviced Suites.
