A developer of an housing project, off Jalan Datuk Sulaiman, Kampung Sungai Penchala, Kuala Lumpur, is questioning the Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s (DBKL) decision to deny them the use of an access road which the local authority has approved earlier.
According to Rah Properties Corporation executive chairman Mohd Ibrahim Abdul Rahim, the developer, they had all the needed approvals and there was nothing illegal involved in their construction work.
The developer, who has been denied use of Jalan Datuk Sulaiman 1 in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, said they were no technical issues because they had building approval on Feb 11.
Some residents are unhappy with use of the Jalan Datuk Sulaiman 1 as an access road for heavy vehicles to the construction site which they claim was causing congestion and security problem in the area.
The developer has been issued a stop-work order on March 15 by DBKL and barriers have been put up to deny access.
Mohd Ibrahim said in the approved plan, Jalan Jalan Datuk Sulaiman 1 and the backlane leading to the construction site had been identified as an access road.
He questioned DBKL’s move in changing their decision.
“They stated the reason for denying access was due to disturbance and the effect on the environment but that is the only access road to the site.
“There are only four to five lorries carrying cement plying the road and all our earth work are at the site,” he said, adding they have followed all the stipulated guidelines.
As for the proposed alternative access road from Penchala Link to the construction site, Ibrahim said it was impractical as it had a 75° gradient.
“We have even built a new road in the area at a cost of RM1.8mil with a retaining wall.
“We have to continue with our construction work and if there is a delay who is going to compensate us for the loss?” he asked.
