Mega project woes

Unhappy group: Residents are protesting against the development in front of the newly-completed block of shophouses.

PALM Grove residents are unhappy with the Klang Municipal Council for approving a mega project, including two hotels and a mall near Taman Palm Grove in Klang.

The IGateway project occupies a 6ha site in Taman Datuk Abdul Hamid, which is separated from Palm Grove by two service roads, Lebuh Turi and Lebuh Siput.

Palm Grove Rukun Tetangga chairman S. Kanapathy said the mega project was launched 15 years ago but was later abandoned.

“A new developer, Legenda Erajuta Sdn Bhd, took over in recent years and is also completing two abandoned three-storey shophouses in Lebuh Turi.

“Legenda Erajuta is also busy selling its retail outlets which are due for completion in two years,” he said during a protest held by the residents.

Kanapathy said the area had also been hit by frequent flash floods due to the construction of the shophouses.

He said although the shophouses had been completed there was no access road and separate drainage.

“When the mega project is completed we are sure to face a lot of problems, including traffic congestion. The mega project will rob us of the serenity of this peaceful housing estate,” he said.
