Bkt Gasing Landslide

PETALING JAYA: Three landslips occurred along Jalan 5/60 in Bukit Gasing due to soil erosion during the rainy spell.

Soil erosion had also uprooted a tree which had partially blocked nearby Jalan 5/64.

Landslips are frequent occurrences at Bukit Gasing which has resulted in many residents living in fear.

Petaling Jaya City Council member Derek Fernandez said the persistent landslips were a definite cause for concern.

“I will be moving a motion at the council for much stricter procedures for hillside development.

“This includes the need for a mandatory independent audit by geo-technical engineers to gather information, supervise and oversee the construction phases,” he said yesterday.
