Selangor cancels PJD Link project approved by Ismail Sabri Cabinet

Caretaker Selangor menteri besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari today announced the cancellation of the proposed Petaling Jaya Dispersal Link (PJD Link) that was approved by the previous federal government under the prime ministership of Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob in April last year.

“This administration’s principle is that development in Selangor should achieve a balance among the aspects of sustainability, economic progress, and not cause harm to residents,” he said in a statement this afternoon.

He said that based on the social impact assessment (SIA) report, his caretaker administration “is not satisfied with the plan that has been presented because it does not fulfil the conditions” that had been previously set by the state.

“Therefore, the Selangor government does not wish to continue with this proposal and has decided to cancel the construction of PJD Link,” he added.
