The Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP) is believed to have sent its officers out to enforce a stop work order at an RMAF school construction site in Tanjung Bunga.
These photos were taken earlier today before the MPPP took action.
The MPPP action followed a complaint by a neighbouring resident that work was still proceeding despite a stop work order.
Drilling work was also going on, said a resident.
Thumping and knocking sounds could be heard from the site. A source said workers appeared to be doing external work, wiring, etc.
Another neighbouring resident said he had seen workers trooping out of the site in the evenings.
Reporters and council personnel turned up at the site to investigate.
“A stop work order means just that – all work, including maintenance and any other work on site, has to stop,” said the source, who added he was informed that the stop work order would be in place until all building plans and other requirements were submitted to the MPPP and approved.
