Actually, I bought a house in Bukit Bandaraya, which is right next to Setia Eco Park. According to Bukit Bandaraya's developer, SP Setia has requested a few times for the road from Eco Park to be connected but the Bukit Bandaraya developer does not want to allow this connection since Bukit Bandaraya is a medium/low-density and purely residential development with its main draw being that its quite, clean and calm area next door to a forest reserve, a few lakes and parks.
I am also quite sure that most residents (who are also homeowners) in Bukit Bandaraya don't really want the extra traffic from Setia Alam passing through their road-network just to get a connection to a shopping mall either.
probably it is that way, for now.
but contrary to your opinion that the traffic comes from Setia Alam if there is an access link to Bkt Bandaraya, i disagreed.
instead, i dare say that it is the contrary, where by residents of Section 2, 7, 8, 11 areas will pass through Bkt Bandaraya to get to Setia Alam toll to enter NKVE, as an alternative to Federal Highway in their commute to KL/PJ/North/South.
most probably, i think in 5-10 years down the road, some party will lobby for an access road connecting these townships. Especially when the developer hands over the township to MBSA. Just imagine the convenience of closer access to a highway exit. Bukit Bandaraya & section U12, although located right next to a highway, currently have no access to the said highway and can only use Federal or take a round trip to Bukit Raja to enter the highway, which is highly impractical and fuel wasting.
**CAVEAT** I'm not saying i agree or am a proponent of the link roads, but i am just a neutral observer who happens to live nearby and travel these areas everyday
