Gasing Meridian’s proposed development at Bukit Gasing.

The fight to save Bukit Gasing on KL side from ravages of development had been fought for more than a decade. Promises to listen and even to gazette Bukit Gasing have been made, but nothing have changed. Petitions to DBKL and former PM Abdulah Badawi had been futile. Lately, the pace of development have accelerated. Even residents in low cost apartments in the kampong areas are being evicted to make way for development. If nothing is done, the rich will increasingly own the greens of Bukit Gasing.

In Feb 2008, residents/Owners in close proximity feared for their safety and took DBKL to court for approving development on the steep hill slopes of Bukit Gasing without having a public hearing. After more than 4 years, they are still seeking transparency of approval process through the judicial processes. In the meantime the Federal Territory Minister, Datuk Raja Nong Cik is proposing to wipe clean the stain of devastation of Bukit Gasing by renaming Bukit Gasing in KL to Bukit Kerinchi. Any visitors to Bukit Gasing will have seen that the pace of development on KL side Bukit Gasing has picked up. Locals on KL side are well aware of how Bukit/Kampong Kerinchi (the original ones) are slowly disappearing.

We now seek your support for a Petition to the Prime Minister, YAB Datuk Seri Najib Razak. Please email us if you able to help gather signatures for the petition the traditional way or you can help by signing the online version here…

We seek your support and help in communicating to the wider public such that our PM will be aware of the wide public concern on the rampant development on Bukit Gasing KL side that threatens the safety of residents there. Without a public hearing, both the risks of steep hill slope development and the sustainability of Bukit Gasing/Gasing Ridge will not be known. Rampant developments in Bukit Gasing KL side cannot be of benefit to the wider population.

Please help with this appeal.

JAC for Bukit Gasing.

Sat. 24th March 2012 at Hutan Pendidikan Bukit Gasing (PJ Bukit Gasing):  It was good to see more than 50 people that came to the gathering point for the walk. There were many more that were regulars that came and went ahead of the crowd, eager to enjoy the fresh air and nature that PJ Bukit Gasing provided. A number of us from Save Bukit Gasing team joined the Fun Walk. There were quite a number that came to see Bukit Gasing for the first time.

Many that came for the walk had commented on the number of developments that kept creeping up onto Bukit Gasing. All without fail were appalled when we explained that DBKL had almost 2/3rd of what Bukit Gasing originally was, but now only they talked about gazetting about 1/3rd of Bukit Gasing they were responsible for. More importantly, most were disgusted at the failure to protect KL Bukit Gasing by DBKL. All voiced concern at the rampant development in KL side of Bukit Gasing over recent years. In particular, they were shocked at the approval by DBKL for Gasing Meridian to develop multimillionaire bungalows on KL Bukit Gasing. They all shared with our safety concerns.

There was laughter when we mentioned FT Minister’s recent boast at the creation of Taman Bukit Kerinchi (consisting of only 34.6ha). It is evident that whilst Selangor State/MBPJ had quickly moved to gazette all of PJ Bukit Gasing (38ha), DBKL has permitted development on almost 2/3 of Bukit Gasing in their jurisdiction. Further laughter occurred when we mentioned Datuk Raja Nong Cik’s proposal to rename Bukit Gasing to Bukit Kerinchi. Such was the “Fun” in the Fun Walk Day. They changed history, why not geography [sic].

Anyhow, many took the opportunity to have pictures taken with the “Save Bukit Gasing – Save Lives” banner.  Thank you all that came to show your love for Bukit Gasing. Thank you also for giving us the support to spread the word about DBKL’s and FT Ministry’s relentless attempt to remove Bukit Gasing from KL Map. With more public support, we can bring DBKL and FT Ministry to their senses. We cannot and should not allow them to strangle PJ Bukit Gasing by over development. The sustainability of PJ Bukit Gasing will be threatened by their irresponsible actions in promoting developer rights over that of right of us all to a healthy living environment in KL and PJ.

When landslips occurred on Bukit Gasing on evening of 7th March 2012 there were flash floods in KL. There was even a landslide that claimed a child in Kampong Attap area.

On top of all this and probably on the same day, there were at least 5 landslides along Jalan Robson (road next to Jalan Syed Putra) and Persiaran Endah (road leading to Thean Hou Temple and Robson Heights Condo). Until probably sometime yesterday, Jalan Robson was partially block because of the massive landslide. It’s only by God’s grace that there were no fatalities when these landslides occur.

FT Minister and Mayor of KL must recognize that steep hill slopes needs attention. For them to allow development development on steep hill slopes of Bukit Gasing is to set a time bomb for residents of Bukit Gasing. As landslips on current earthworks have shown, the removal of trees and vegetation exposes the hill to potential landslides.
Can we trust FT Ministry and Mayor of KL to care for our safety? Do share this with your friends.. let people know what the MSM have little interest to highlight to the public.
