SHAH ALAM, Dec 7 — The implementation of Sungai Penaga river bank strengthening project in Subang Jaya with an estimated cost of RM2.3 million is expected to begin mid of next year.
Subang Jaya state assemblyman Michelle Ng Mei Sze said the project would benefit nearly 2,000 residents of One Avenue USJ apartments, who were affected by the floods last year.
“We have repaired the damages on the perimeter wall as a short-term solution, while for a long-term action, the river bank strengthening project will begin mid-next year,” she said when contacted by SelangorKini today.
Michelle added that she is currently discussing with the apartment’s management to hold a briefing session about the matter in January next year.
“Other than the USJ One Avenue apartment, two other areas that are frequently being hit by floods are Jalan Industri and Lagoon Perdana. I hope there will be some allocations to resolve flood issues in both areas,” she said.
Several flood incidents in 2012, 2021 and this year have hit the basement of USJ One Avenue, causing damages to hundreds of cars and properties.
