KUALA LUMPUR: Seven vehicles were buried under a landslide at Persiaran Putra Bahagia, 500 metres from the Putra Heights Police Station, Subang Jaya, this evening.
Nevertheless, the eight people in the vehicles, five cars, a van and a motorcycle, were reported safe. Selangor Fire and Rescue Department, assistant director (Operations) Mohd Sani Harul said, the route experienced mud flood from the landslide in Bukit Cermin, where a project to build semi-detached houses was taking place.
"The earth collapsed, then entered a catchment pond nearby causing the pond to break. "The mixture of water and mud overflowed to the road 20 metres away," he said at the scene of the incident. The vehicles which were buried in earth were carried away by the mud flood but the occupants managed to save themselves. He said the department received a call at 6.12pm and arrived at the scene at 6.14pm.
Meanwhile, Subang Jaya police chief ACP Yahaya Ramli said, police received information on the incident at 6.05pm.
He said, work to clear the road was underway and was expected to be completed at midnight.
Kingsley Hills Sdn Bhd developer Tan Sri Barry Goh said the housing project started early last year and was scheduled for completion in five years.
"We might have to stop the project and will discuss with the Subang Jaya Municipal Council on further action," he said, adding that the project covered a 40-hectare site. Sri Muda State Assemblyman Shuhaimi Shafie urged all construction works in the area to cease so that a study could be carried out. -- BERNAMA
