Cause of LDP floods

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Un­usu­ally heavy rain and work by con­trac­tors on an LRT project to move a por­tion of a drain were among the main causes of the floods at the Le­buhraya Da­mansara-Pu­chong (LDP) on Tues­day, ac­cord­ing to its con­ces­sion­aire Lingkaran Trans Kota Hold­ing Ber­had (Li­trak).

Its chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Saza­lly Saidi said a probe into the flood­ing was done with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Sub­ang Jaya Mu­nic­i­pal Coun­cil, the Malaysian High­way Au­thor­ity and IOI Busi­ness Cen­tre.

“Rain­fall that day was recorded at 81mm, which is cat­e­gorised by the Drainage and Ir­ri­ga­tion De­part­ment as un­usu­ally heavy. This caused the wa­ter level in the Klang River to ex­ceed the nor­mal range,” Saza­lly said. – Ber­nama
