Last Sunday saw the launch of the SlopeWatch Program by the coalition of Bukit Antarabangsa Residents' Association (CoBARA) held at our very own doorsteps.
Project Manager Eriko Motoyama enlightened attendees with a presentation on the concepts of SlopeWatch and the illustrative measures to prevent similar tragedies.
Apart from fostering closer efforts in monitoring slopes, the residents are expected to act as communication channels by providing timely information to their respective residents' association to alert the relevant authorities to act.
There was quite a bit of coverage in both the local print and electronic media it is suffice to say that the launch was a success amidst some minor flaws but the fact remains that -
if you look around you as you drive up bukit antarabangsa, it doesn't take a geologist to see that all the signs are clearly visible.
