KUALA LUMPUR CITY HALL (DBKL) will stop the project to build 69 bungalow units on the slope of Bukit Gasing near Kampung Pantai Dalam here, if the developer fails to follow procedures issued by the Malaysian Institute of Public Works (IKRAM).

Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib said City Hall would monitor the development and so far there were several complaints from the residents claiming that there had been landslides and air pollution due to the earth works being carried out.

“There will be problems if we ask them to postpone the project. What we want now is for them to carry out their work more seriously,” he told reporters during a visit to the project site, here yesterday.

He was commenting on news report yesterday where the residents there claimed there was a landslide on the slope yesterday morning due to the heavy rain currently.

They also claimed that if the project by Gasing Meridien Sdn Bhd were to be continued, a landslide like the one in Bukit Antarabangsa in 2008 could be repeated. — Bernama
