Besides that, there are also multiple rows of shop lots at different points of the township that provide various amenities. These shop lots house banks, clinics, workshops, petrol kiosks, restaurants and more.
Not only that, since there are so many townships situated near to each other, residents at Taman Johor Jaya get to enjoy many amenities from their neighbouring townships such as shopping at Tesco hypermarket and Jusco Tebrau City in Taman Desa Tebrau which is basically sited just next to Taman Johor Jaya. There is also Hospital Sultan Ismail which is located within a close proximity to Taman Johor Jaya.

Otherwise, Taman Johor Jaya is also easily accessible via various routes like the Pasir Gudang Highway, Jalan Pandan or Jalan Masai Baru.
Although surrounded by many other residential and commercial developments, it is always a place where many can comfortably call home for many years to come. However, with the recent installation of the telecommunication towers which is a part of the government’s plan to enhance broadband coverage to benefit schools with better WIFI services within the residential areas, residents started to voice out their opinions regarding this issue.
Many were against the installation of the telecommunication towers in fear that the radioactive rays might harm their health in the long term although the plan is beneficial to the developments of their children’s educations. Many were not keen on putting their health at risks and are looking to take further actions in resolving this matter.
