Kenyataan Media: Keselamatan Cerun Di Seluruh Negara / Media Statement: Nationwide Slope Safety

Kementerian Kerja Raya mengeluarkan kenyataan seperti berikut:-

  1. Memandangkan musim tengkujuh telah tiba dan hujan berterusan sejak awal bulan ini dan dijangka berterusan sehingga awal tahun hadapan, Kementerian Kerja Raya ingin mengingatkan orang ramai terutamanya pengguna jalan raya dan penghuni di kawasan berbukit dan lereng-lereng bahawa risiko berlakunya tanah runtuh adalah lebih tinggi berbanding pada hari-hari kebiasaan.
  2. Cawangan Cerun Jabatan Kerja Raya telah meminta Jabatan-Jabatan Negeri yang berkenaan termasuk Pejabat-Pejabat Daerah dan juga konsesi-konsesi yang menguruskan jalan raya dan lebuh raya untuk lebih proaktif dan memantau keadaan cerun di bawah selenggara mereka sepenuh masa untuk mengelakkan kejadian tidak dingini seperti mana berlaku di Hulu Langat tidak lama dahulu.
  3. Kementerian juga menasihati orang ramai agar segera melaporkan kepada pihak berkuasa sekiranya terdapat tanda-tanda kemungkinan berlaku tanah runtuh dan segera mengambil langkah berjaga-jaga dengan mengosongkan tempat tinggal serta merta.
  4. Kementerian Kerja Raya akan mengeluarkan panduan tanda-tanda tanah runtuh di media massa utama dalam masa terdekat ini sebagai panduan bagi mengelakkan kemalangan yang tidak diingini.
  5. Bagaimanapun orang ramai boleh mengambil langkah pencegahan awal dengan mengadakan pemeriksaan dan mengawasi perkara berikut:
  • Membersih saliran air di atas atau di lereng- lereng bukit dan jika ada air bertakung salirkan ke dalam parit yang sedia ada.
  • Tentukan parit berada dalam keadaan baik tidak tersekat (oleh pokok- pokok atau sampah) jika struktur longkang konkrit, pastikan longkang tersebut tidak pecah.
  • Memerhatikan tanda-tanda awal kegagalan cerun seperti keretakan pada pavement jalan dan tembok penahan. Sekiranya tiang elektrik dan pokok di lereng bukit mulai condong, ia juga merupakan tanda awal akan berlaku keruntuhan cerun.

Untuk makluman lanjut, sila hubungi Cawangan Kejuruteraan Cerun di talian 03-26967331 atau pejabat-pejabat JKR Negeri, Pejabat Daerah dan Perbandaran berdekatan.

The Ministry of Works had issued the statement as following:-

  1. As the monsoon season is around the corner and continuous rain from the beginning of this month and is expected to continue until early next year, the Ministry of Works would like to remind the public especially road users and residents in highland areas that the risks of landslides are higher than normal days.
  2. The Slope Division of the Public Wokrs Department had urged affected State Departments including District Offices and highway concessionaires to become more proactive and to monitor slope conditions under their maintenance full-time to avoid unwanted consequences such as what had happened at Hulu Langat not long ago.
  3. The Ministry also had advised the public to report to the authorities immediately if there is any sign of possible landslides and to take immediate preventive measures by evacuating from their homes at once.
  4. The Ministry of Works will issue a guide of signs of landslides through mass media shortly as a guide to avoid unwanted casualties.
  5. However, the public may take early preventive measures by checking and to take note of the following:
  • Clean the drains on or beside hill slopes, and if there is some stagnent water inside, the water must be rerouted to existing drains.
  • Make sure that the drains are in good condition and not blocked (with trees and rubbish), and if the drains are made of concrete, make sure that the drains are not broken.
  • Monitor any early signs of slope failures such as cracks on road pavement and retaining wall. The the electricity posts and trees beside the hill are leaning, it is also an early sign of landslide possibility.

For further information, please call the Slope Engineering Branch at 03-26967331 or the nearest State JKR, District Office and Municipal Council offices.
