        Construction of condo next to Batu Caves to be temporarily halted

        Date:Oct 24,2012

        The Selangor Government has ordered the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) to temporarily halt the construction of the proposed controversial 29-storey condominium next to Batu Caves.

        State exco member Ronnie Liu said the matter would be brought to the State Planning Committee, adding that the project was approved in 2007 during the tenure of the previous state government.

        “It requires a thorough process for us to stop this project to avoid legal action being taken against us,'' said Liu, after a meeting with the temple committee members yesterday.

        However, he added, the state government should not give in to the temple committee's demands.

        “There are other high-rise developments surrounding the caves and temple area and these were approved previously. Why does this project need to be stopped?” he asked.

        The temple management, residents and NGOs such as the Malaysian Nature Society are concerned that the impending construction will affect the cave's stability and the temple structures.
