Potential Landslide in Medan Damansara?

With the recent Bukit Antarabangsa landslide fresh in the minds of all Malaysians and as I have guessed, those staying in Medan Damansara would be fearing for their lifes as well. The Damansara 21 hillslope project undertaken by SDB Properties Sdn Bhd is just lingering above the few rows of houses at Medan Damansara. SDB Properties Sdn Bhd has requested the authorities to give them six months to facilitate them to strengthen the hillslope in which they are investing RM30 million to stabilise the hill.

If it requires as much as RM30 million just to do that ............. what does it tell you?

The residents, under the Medan Damansara Residents Association, has objected to the hillslope project. I wonder what the association had done that has given an avenue for SDB Properties Sdn Bhd to sue the association's current and past presidents and two other office bearers.

Not only they lived in fear but have to think about the law suit as well.

The residents have a blog for their cause too - Save The Hills, Please.

I say scrap all hillside development! I prefer to have hillside as green lungs. Our green lungs are getting less and less nowadays.
