According to a statement issued by the minister, the authorities decided to defer the DBKL’s new traffic diversion plan after discussions with representatives from local communities.

The attendees included Palm Court Residents Association, The Malaysian Association for the Blind, Pines Condominium Management Corporations, Rukun Tetangga Brickfields, Integrated Service Association and church representatives.

Komunitikini was told that the local communities did not agree with the changes in DBKL’s new diversion plan and requested that the diversion plan to be reviewed before being implemented.

“Hence, traffic (flow) around Brickfields remains unchanged today. DBKL will deliberate the plan with several NGOs before any new changes are put forward in the near future,” Raja Nong Chik said.
