A crane pierces the hill-slope… while residents below live in fear
These look like Class IV slopes – Photos by Tanjung Bunga residents
Residents of Tanjung Bunga are claiming that the developer of a controversial project is defying a stop work order to cease land development work on three plots which they say are not supported by a geotechnical report.
They have taken photos to show that work is continuing on these plots. From these photos, it appears obvious that work is being carried out on Class IV slopes.
Official guidelines prohibit development on such slopes.
Meanwhile, one Penangite who is opposed to hillslope development says the Tanjung Bunga Residents Association should demand answers from former Penang Chief Minister Koh Tsu Koon and ask him how such projects were approved in the first place.
