Copy Cat received complain

Odd balls to roll over to playgrounds

The weird looking balls at the SS3 junction are "a mistake."
THE weird looking balls at the SS3 junction will be moved to playgrounds around Petaling Jaya.

Kampung Tunku assemblyman Datuk Dr Wong Sai Hou said the balls were a mistake.

"The balls were an idea that was based on MK Land's Damansara Perdana landscaping and were supposed to sport the council's colours and be an artistic representation of Petaling Jaya Municipal Council’s progressiveness," said Dr Wong.

"However, on the day when they were put up, the Landscape Department director Zuraidah Sainan was in hospital and the contractor that was doing the job did not know how to arrange them," he added.

The fibreglass balls, purportedly costing RM500 each, will be shifted after the holidays and replaced by plants that do not obstruct the view of motorists.

StarMetro highlighted the matter on Oct 22 after residents called up to complain about the odd-looking structures “decorating” the junction.
