Stopwork order if project has caused cracks

The Star - June 1, 2008

State Local Government, Traffic Manage-ment and Environment Committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow said they have directed Malaysia Public Works Institute (Ikram) to examine and ascertain how the cracks appeared in the residents’ houses.

“If the cracks were related to the cons-truction works, a stopwork order will be issued,” he said in a statement.

It was reported in newspapers yesterday that some 150 residents in Jalan Kuantan claimed that cracks, which first appeared in early January and were growing larger by the day, had appeared on their pre-war houses and shops.

The developer, Ivory Gleneory Sdn Bhd, is undertaking the construction of the RM1bil project on a 5.2ha site in Jalan Datuk Keramat.
