(Shah Alam August 10) Work to upgrade the drainage system at Jalan Industri 9, Kampung Baru Sungai Buloh will solve the problem of flash floods that have been lingering in the area for the past 15 years.

The new village development EXCO said the upgrade project run by the Public Works Department (JKR) with an allocation of RM800,000 is expected to be completed next month.

The upgrade work involves strengthening the cliffs and repairing the drainage system. In fact, I understand that JKR will also clean the clogged ditch.
