Retaining wall on verge of collapse
26/01/2006The Malay Mail


KUALA LUMPUR: Residents of Taman Sri Lempah flats at Lorong Jugra near Taman Desa here are living in fear that a retaining wall of a partially-built town-house may collapse following a downpour.

Last night, a perimeter fence near the wall collapsed and cracks was said to have appeared at the retaining wall.

Resident Fadlishah Mat Derus, 29, said their worst fear regarding the project almost came true with the collapse of the fence last night.

"The fence had titled on Tuesday and many residents were afraid to park their cars there," he said.

Fadlishah, an architect, is staying at a unit closest to the fence and retaining wall.

"My housemate and I have already packed some of our belongings and are ready to move out if it rains agains," he said, adding that the fence collapsed about 7pm yesterday but for tunately not many residents were around at the time.

A team of firefighters arrived at the scene about 9pm and sealed off the affected area.

"Due to the fencing, I was unable to see the cracks on the wall. Now I can see it clearly," said Fadlishah.

Another resident, Lim Poh Choo, 50, said she was cooking when she heard a loud rumble about 7pm.

She said residents had taken precautions since the fence titled on Tuesday.

"We have already sensed that the fence might fall over,"said Lim.
