Taman Lingakaran Nur project revived
20/06/2002 NST

AFTER waiting for 12 years, 250 house buyers of Taman Lingkaran Nur, Phase 1, in Batu 12, Cheras, Hulu Langat are hopeful again that they will finally get their homes.

The project, which was abandoned in 1993, has been revived in a rescue scheme being carried out by Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad (SPNB).

The national housing company of the Housing and Local Government Ministry is putting in RM2 million to complete the project.

Speaking at a signing ceremony between the house buyers and the company in Taman Mesra, Cheras recently, SPNB assistant general manager (project rehabilitation) Mohd Amin Mohd Salleh said the project was expected to be completed by July next year.

He said housing developer Saktimuna Sdn Bhd had abandoned the project in 1993.

"The project involves 253 houses comprising 151 low-cost double-storey units and 154 medium-cost single-storey units.

"The State Government will consider saving Phase 2 of the project later on," he said.

Mohd Amin said last year, the State Government's project manager Lingkaran Nur Sdn Bhd had come in to complete the project.

"The company, however, surrendered the project in April due to financial problems.

"It is now 80 per cent complete. We will issue tenders to contractors registered with the Finance Ministry soon," he said.

Lingkaran Nur house buyers' protem committee president Md Noh Md Amin said the buyers were relieved that work on the project would resume soon.

Md Noh said the buyers had lost about RM35,000 in rental and other expenses incurred in claiming their houses.

"We will also file suits against Saktimuna once the project is completed," he added.

Also present were State Local Authority, Squatters, Housing and Environment Committee chairman Datuk Mokhtar Ahmad Dahlan and SPNB chief executive officer Datuk Mohd Nor Bador.
