There has been a protest against the development of the Carrefour hypermarket back in year 2007. This is because residents near to the hypermarket feared that the development would lead to more traffic congestion around the already traffic heavy township. There was another protest against the Carrefour development in year 2008 and about 400 residents took part in that protest.
They commented that the traffic is already heavily congested due to the fact that there is a school located just around the neighborhood. Apart from that, they feared that the development would have led to sound pollution near to the development area.
Just early this year, an article on Free Malaysia Today have stated that it is a pain to get around town for Kota Damansara residents even with access to public transportation and this is not just because of the traffic congestion, but also the poor services from the poorly run public transport.
After the hypermarket is completed and under operation now, it seems that Carrefour does not affect the traffic congestion much. The area itself seems to be too congested due to improper ingress and egress roads from Kota Damansara to other areas.
However, property values in Carmilla Apartment have gone up over the years. With developments such as Carrefour Kota Damansara and a new private hospital, the price appreciation will roar further.
