Unit to keep an eye on the hills in Putrajaya
Putrajaya Corporation has set up a special team to monitor hilly areas in Putrajaya to ensure that they are safe and prevent the recurrence of landslides.
Its president Tan Sri Samsudin Osman said the team would be assisted by the Slope Division of the Public Works Department in conducting continuous surveillance of the hilly areas.
“The unit will check the slopes of the hilly areas, especially where houses are located. This is to ensure their stability and to look for signs of impending landslides,” he told reporters after flagging off participants of the Putrajaya Treasure Hunt 2007, here today.
