Developer builds four more silt traps

The developer of Bayu Segar housing project in Cheras has added four silt traps to the existing two in its construction site to prevent mudflows.

This will bring temporary relief to the residents Taman Mutiara Timur, which was hit by mudflows for the second time on March 24.

The first incident happened in October last year and subsequently the drainage and silt traps were upgraded.

Representatives from the developer IJM Corp Bhd brought Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai and residents on a site visit recently to assure them that necessary measures have been taken.

"With the additional traps, we can expert to reduce 90% of silt," said project manager Lim Hock Seng, adding that a team is on standby to respond to any emergency.

"We will also be building drains later as another preventive measure. We will also upgrade the monsoon drain once City Hall gives the approval," he said.

He assured the residents that the developer would clear all the drains in the affected area.

"The company does not mind the extra costs and will do its best to ensure the safety of residents," he said.

The Bayu Segar housing project started last year and the development comprises 100 semi-detached and bungalow units.

It is scheduled to be completed by the end of August next year.

Tan commended the developer for their prompt response and sincerity.

"We will have an observation period to see if the remedial measures are effective. Nonetheless, the developer has given us the assurance that they will address all the problem," he said.

Tan also said he would urge City Hall to speed up its approval on the monsoon drain.
