Residents live in fear of landslides
12/01/2008 The Star By Elan Perumal

EACH night, when the more than 2,000 residents of the Teratai Apartment in Puchong go to bed, they pray that it will not rain. Why?

Not because they still have clothing outside to dry or their apartments are leaking, but simply because they live in constant fear of landslide.

Their apartment area has been hit by three landslides in the past two-and-a-half years. The latest landslide, a minor one, occurred just two months ago.

Clean up: Kow helping out during the community cleaning exercise held by the residents of the apartments.
Each time it rains, especially at night, the residents from the 446 apartment units become jittery.

The recent landslide occurred near the playground and the residents are worried about where the next one will take place, Kinrara assemblyman Dr Kow Cheong Wei said.

I can understand their predicament since they had experienced a major landslide which buried a car park area and another incident soon after the first one in 2005,'' he said.

He said that Syabas had spent RM1.24mil on rectification works.

Kow said that he had informed Syabas and was awaiting the reports of its investigation on the latest incident.

He said the residents were concerned over the safety of their children since the last landslide occurred near the playground.

I have advised them not to allow the children to the area until we receive the report from Syabas,'' he said.

Kow also took part in a community cleaning exercise held by the residents of the apartments.
