Saga barrier comes down!

Cabinet orders Cheras barriers removed ! Now that's good news indeed:

Finally some good news for the residents of Bandar Mahkota Cheras (BMC) - the federal government has ordered that a toll-free access road in their neighbourhood should not be barricaded.

BMC Open Road Committee chairperson Tan Boon Hwa said that he was informed of this by Transport Minister Ong Tee Keat this afternoon.

Tan said that Ong called him up after the weekly cabinet meeting to inform him of the cabinet decision taken today.

But I wonder - is it always up to the Cabinet to call the shots? Are all the pillars of government reduced to one all-powerful Executive?

On the other hand I applaud the commitment of BMC residents who stood against Grand Saga. It goes to show that when we keep on pushing, something is bound to give...
