DBKL KELUARKAN PETA BENCANA KAWASAN KEDIAMAN BERISIKO TANAH RUNTUH

KUALA LUMPUR, 30 Dis (Bernama) -- Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL)

dijangka mengeluarkan pada Jun depan peta bencana yang mengenal pasti kawasan

tanah tinggi di Lembah Klang yang berisiko untuk didiami.

Menyatakan demikian, Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib

berkata pihaknya telah meminta Institut Kerja Raya Malaysia (Ikram) menjalankan

kajian mengenainya mulai Januari depan.

"Kita akan jalankan kajian dengan segera sebagai langkah keselamatan bagi

kediaman yang sudah didiami mahupun yang bakal dibina (di kawasan tanah

tinggi)," katanya kepada pemberita dekat lokasi kejadian tanah runtuh di Puncak

Setiawangsa di sini hari ini.

Terdahulu, beliau mengiringi Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin

Yassin dalam tinjauan ke kawasan kejadian yang berlaku pada 10 malam, Jumaat

lepas.

Mengulas lanjut, Ahmad Phesal berkata peta bencana itu dapat menjadi panduan

kepada pemaju perumahan dan penduduk bagi membolehkan mereka mengambil langkah

keselamatan tertentu.

Ahmad Phesal menafikan dakwaan kononnya pemaju di sekitar Bukit Setiawangsa

dan Puncak Setiawangsa membina kediaman tidak mengikut spesifikasi.

Beliau berkata syarikat berkenaan telah mengikuti segala piawaian pembinaan

dan keselamatan ketika membangunkan kawasan perumahan itu lebih 20 tahun lalu.

"Spesifikasi ini berubah dari semasa ke semasa dan apabila berlaku kejadian

bencana alam seperti ini, kita tidak boleh menunding jari kepada satu pihak

kerana insiden seperti ini tidak dapat dijangka.

"Namun Bahagian Siasatan Cerun, Jabatan Kerja Raya sedang menjalankan

siasatan bagi mengenal pasti punca utama kejadian berdasarkan keadaan tanah dan

struktur pembinaan oleh pemaju," katanya.

Beliau juga menyatakan bahawa pemaju diarah merobohkan segera sebuah banglo

lereng bukit yang terjejas teruk dalam kejadian tanah runtuh itu.
