    A malfunction at one of the three underground water channels along the Damansara-Puchong Highway (LDP) has been identified as the cause of the flash floods around IOI Mall, Puchong near here yesterday evening.

    Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) president Datuk Asmawi Kasbi said the failure of one of the channels to function properly caused it to be unable to accommodate the rising quantity of water following a heavy downpour yesterday.

    Asmawi said MPSJ had requested Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd (MRCB), the contractor of the Light Rail Transit track in the area, to enlarge the existing drain to prevent the incident from recurring.

  2. Of cause they said it is due to back flow, otherwise they have to compensate the car owners if they admit it is due to poor planning of construction.

  3. According to operating concessionaire Litrak’s head of communications Shah Rizal Bin Mohamed Fawzi, Km 21.36 and 23.50 on the southbound-side of the LDP was flooded around 5.22pm.

    The flash flood, which was caused by backflow from monsoon drains feeding into the Klang river, reached 0.8m in height at parts of Km 21.36 and caused a number of cars to stall.

  4. 據瞭解,蒲種區目前進行輕快鐵延長線工程,疑此次水災是因受到該工程影響,雨水無法及時排走,以致受影響地區從公主城外至蒲種IOI Mall廣場對面皆一片汪洋。
