SUBANG JAYA: The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) has stopped remedial works at the site of a landslide in Jalan Puteri 9, Bandar Puteri Puchong, a month after starting repair works.
Its deputy resident, Abdullah Marjunid, said this was in keeping with a court injunction to prevent the council and its contractors to use their land as an access road.
Abdullah said the council needed to pass through the private property to find the source of the landslide.
“Unfortunately, since the interim injunction was issued on April 17, we had to stop everything pending an appeal,” he said.
Abdullah said the council's legal department and lawyers were currently working on the appeal process.
On March 14, The Malay Mail reported remedial works has started at the site of a landslide, nine months after the incident.
Six families living closest to the disaster area were moved temporarily to the IOI Resort in Putrajaya while the remaining 52 families were given the option to move into the hotel or remain in their homes while the developer begins repair works on the slope along the stretch.
In the incident last May, the landslide caused a retention wall to collapse, damaging two private properties in the area.
No casualties were reported.
