The security conscious and peace loving PP8A residents welcome the newly shifted in police squad from Putra Perdana to Taman Putra Prima. Before, our Taman Putra Prima pondok polis used to be served as a stop over or rest area stationed by  only one or two police constables.  Now it is a full function police station (balai) equipped with operation rooms, 24 hour service counter  and is headed by a ketua balai S/Insp Aziz bin Ali.

Coincidentally, the police station is just located several hundred meters away from the guard house or main entrance of our  gated and guarded community scheme. It is indeed our nearest neighbour and the most strategic security supporting counterpart.

As a gesture of appreciation to the squad dedication and commitment to battle against crime in our Taman, we the RA is most delighted to contribute a 1.5HP brand new York aircon unit to the renovating police station.

Let’s join effort with the police and contribute our part to turn TPP8A into the safest place or home for all.

Lowering Of Water Retention Basin Level & Desilting Works To Ease Off Road Flooding

(15/11/2013 Taman Putra Prima reporting)

The western end of the newly repaired Jalan Putra Prima Utara is still flooding after heavy down pour. This persistent problem was brought to the direct attention of the Jabatan Kejuruteraan MPSepang by the 8A resident association several months ago.

Among the immediate measures taken by the Jabatan Kejuruteraan including building more scupper drains and weep holes along the flood prone area, two  new box culverts were laid across Jalan  Taman Mas to alleviate the discharge capacity by diverting substantial amount of the storm water to Taman Mas instead of flowing to the over loaded Tmn Putra Prima storm retention basin.

However due to new developments added to the upper stream, plus clogging of water canal at the downstream, Engineer from the Jabatan Kejuruterran of MPSepang En Mohd Hairil Ridza Bin Hashim and Pengarah Puan Nurulbaiti Binti Zainuldin had several discussions and follow up site inspections with the Vice Chairman of the Residents’ Consultative Committee of Zone Putra Prima & Taman Mas (Jawatan-kuasa Perunding Penduduk) or (JPP) Mr Kong Kok Meng.

A quick decision was made yesterday  to deploy a tractor mounted jackhammer to reduce the design level of the spillway structure or ponding level of the existing water retention basin, and to prescribe desilting work at the down stream in order to ease off the slow discharge of storm water.

Hopefully with these rapid remedial actions by the Jabatan Kejuruteraan, the discharge of the excessive storm water that causes frequent flooding to our road is under controlled.  The RA  also like to express gratitude to the officers of Jabatan Kejuruteraan for their dedication.










Assess objectively before taking hardline approach against scheme

Star Metro, letter 6 Nov 2013

MPPJ enforcement unit dismantling barricade

“We live in an age where some residents in high-risk spots fear for their security at all times. With broad consensus from the residents concerned, the RAs have taken a practical solution to protect themselves and their properties in view of the inadequacies of our system.

Looking at the situation, the local authorities should have come up with an objective assessment of the area before taking the hard-line approach.

Many questioned the enforcement action by the local council, which should always be above reproach as it is their responsibility to protect residents, too.

It is clear that dissenting views are not uncommon when it comes to the gated-and-guarded concept.”
