Authorities not monitoring rock-blasting







A resident in Tanjong Bunga near the Surin condominium project took these photos of continued hill-cutting and rockblasting. It is evident that on-going works have not been monitored by MPPP and other relevant departments to ensure that they comply with their conditions. From the photos you can see that earthcutting right up to the boundary of the neighbouring property. Wouldn't you be worried if you are a resident here?

According to the report, YB Phee Boon Poh was at the site to see for himself and agreed that there were contraventions. Will there be a stop-work order from MPPP?

Hold direct local elections at MPPP and JKKK levels. Elected reps will be more active in such things.

Get lawyers, go to the MPs and papers to stop all the works in Tg. Bungah. The State government must stop all this nonsense. I don't live there but I agree that they are destroying Tg. Bungah.

Not sure if there are people who will buy the properties at these hillsides.

Seems dangerous to me.

We need to campaign for a hillside development ordinance that can make the state government responsible for it's decision. Read my write-up abouthill cutting and the need of a hillside development ordinance.
