Kota Daman-sara’s plant nurseries along Jalan Subang will be allowed to continue operating until a study on vital underground pipes there is completed.“In the meantime, nursery operatorscan continue to stay here but they can-not start any construction (that wouldincrease the burden on the land sur-ace),” said Subang Member o Parlia-ment R Sivarasa.Te state has ordered Syarikat Beka-lan Air Selangor (Syabas) to carry out acomprehensive assessment o the saetyo the high-pressure pipes under the14-hectare site, which is known asGreen Lane. Te study will include be-tween 200km and 300km o under-ground pipes which stretch rom BukitLagong to Kota Damansara.Sivarasa said the study had alreadystarted, but it is not known when Sya-bas will complete it.Te Public Works Institute o Ma-laysia (Ikram), in a study last year, hadound that the land was unsuitable orbuildings or development.Ikram’s Centre or Engineering Fo-rensic and Consultancy Services alsonoted that the underground pipes arealready subjected to heavy stress loadsrom ground structures at certain loca-tions.Additional weight could rupturethe pipes that supply water to two mil-lion people in the Klang Valley.emporary and permanent struc-tures at the nursery will also hindermaintenance and upgrading works orthe pipes.Ikram was appointed by YayasanSelangor to conduct the study last yearas the oundation had intended to turnGreen Lane into a nursery theme park.Te plan has since been shelved.
