Authorities To Probe Federal Highway Floods

Authorities To Probe Federal Highway Floods”

This was revaled by Natural Resources and Environment Minister Wan Junaidi Jaafar today.

"We found it was mud and debris that caused the flash flood and not a drainage or irrigation problem". The pond is supposed to retain all the mud from flowing out of the construction site.

He said that most local councils have their own by-laws and discretion in approving a project, and DBKL must ascertain if conditions that came with their approval was being adhered to by the developer.

He also said the ministry had yet to determine the date the project was approved.

"I hope the City Hall will look into this and identify if the company had gone against their EIA".

Wan Junaidi pointed out that any project approved after August 2015 were made to obtain approval from the Department of Environment (DoE), while projects approved prior were exclusively under the discretion of local councils.

"So we have to check now if the project was approved before August 2015 or after".

"We can not enforce the new rules to on-going projects that were approved before that because based on universal principle that our country adopts, laws can not be applied retrospectively", he explained.

Postings on the social media said the affected roads were the Federal Highway near Bangsar South, the Middle Ring Road 2 near Bukit Jalil and the Lekas Highway at the Kantan Permai Kajang exit.

Wan Junaidi said this was among some of the new laws the ministry was planning to enact which included a national water policy and e-waste laws.
