THE Selangor government may erect signboards to warn people of the risks they may encounter at a tributary where eight boys were swept away by strong currents.
The signboards would warn people, especially children, in Kampung Timah SKC, Bukit Beruntung, against fishing along the tributary that leads to Sungai Selangor.
Kuala Kubu Baru assemblyman Lee Kee Hiong said the 1.8kmlong tributary could become dangerous during a downpour as waters could rise up to 5m.
“We need to raise awareness as this is the third drowning here since 2014.
“There are no signages here to caution people.
“We will put signages up near the residential areas as well as near the tributary.
“We will speak to the Selangor Drainage and Irrigation Department
