Landslide report proposes drain/slope repair remedies

08/12/2009 The Star

 

KUALA LUMPUR: Repairing of damaged drains and monitoring of slopes showing signs of distress were among the remedies proposed in the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide report.

The report on the causes of the landslide, which was prepared by a technical committee led by the Public Works Department together with 11 other agencies, was released by the Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) Tuesday.

It is published in two volumes with the first volume centred on a study on the soil condition and the second one on land structure.

One set of the report is sold for RM80.

"Excerpts of the reports were also given to those who buy the report," MPAJ Corporate Planning Department director Norziatulshima Tajuddin said, adding that all 50 sets put up for sale were snapped up, including 20 which were ordered last week.

"Most of the buyers are developers followed by the media and the public. They are only a handful of Bukit Antarabangsa residents who buy the report," he added.

Norziatulshima said the MPAJ would print 50 more sets and put up for sale next Tuesday, Orders are welcomed.

The Bukit Antarabangsa landslide tragedy on Dec 6 last year claimed five lives and destroyed 14 bungalows.
