Repairs to temporarily secure landslip in Puchong completed

Temporary repair works to the landslip along Jalan BPU 6 were completed on Nov 22 and inspected by MBSJ.

Temporary repair works at Bandar Puchong Utama 6, addressing a landslip triggered by heavy rainfall on Nov 13 and subsequent damages, have received approval from the Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ). Promptly responding to the incident, MBSJ removed damaged vehicles, cleaned the area, and installed 400mm sheet piles along Jalan BPU 6 to prevent further soil movement. The temporary repairs, initiated on Nov 17, were successfully completed by Nov 22.

Looking ahead, the council plans a permanent solution following a 12-week open tender process. This involves the installation of L-shaped structures along the affected 60m stretch, estimated to cost RM2 million, with a projected completion time of four months, according to Mayor Mohd Fauzi Mohd Yatim. Insurance agents have engaged with owners of the damaged vehicles, providing necessary valuations.

Mayor Mohd Fauzi expresses support for the Selangor government’s proposal to establish a Greater Klang Valley authority overseeing four local councils. This move is anticipated to bring improved service integration and streamlined processes, aligning with the goals of the Greater Klang Valley Enactment for a responsive administration, optimized resources, and revitalized townships.

Additionally, Mohd Fauzi welcomes the Selangor Budget 2024 proposal introducing a Local Authorities Service Commission. This commission aims to enhance responsiveness and efficiency, particularly in addressing public complaints within 24 hours, introducing an additional layer of checks on services and facilitating more efficient transfers of council workers between different councils.
