PETALING JAYA: Several immediate recommendations were given in the Bukit
Antarabangsa Final Landslide Investigation Report to prevent a similar
incident from occurring.
It called for the undersized and damaged drains within the entire Bukit
Antarabangsa area to be repaired and upgraded.
This included “installing subsoil drains at areas where water seepage and
high ground water tables are located,” it said.
The report also called for all water pipes next to the slopes to be
exposed under the Immediate Recommend-ations section.
“All the water and sewer utilities on slopes shall be inspected
periodically for leakage and damage, as early warning system at high risk
areas” it said.
The report, compiled by a 17-member investigation committee led by the
Public Works Department, also urged for detailed inspection and assessment
of slopes with signs of distress.
“Areas with prolonged soil creep (slow movement of soil) must be regularly
inspected and preventive works must be immediately undertaken,” it said.
Any hillside development must also follow strict development guidelines by
the local authorities, said the report.
