On 15 June 2009 the Ministry of Wilayah Persekutuan has informed Parliament that the upgrading of Jalan Genting Kelang and Jalan Gombak has escalated to RM108, 643, 726.50in HERE. The original contract cost was only RM30.8 million and it was supposed to have been completed on 10 May 2009. But it was not to be. It was finally completed in December 2010 but not without pressure.
[Update 15-7-2011: Tuan Rohaizan bin Ahmad, the Pengarah for Jabatan Bangunan, has been suspended and/or disciplinary actions have been taken against him for violating DBKL policy/regulations for granting extension of time until 8:30 pm or later without getting approval from Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur.
Under DBKL policy and regulation, the permitted working hours from Monday to Saturday are from 8:00 pm until 6 pm for good reason. To ensure that the construction site will not cause public nuisance to the residents.
I am informed that he is no longer the Pengarah of Jabatan Bangunan and the officers of the Flying Squad under him have all been changed. Most probably, they were actually “sleeping on the job”. I am also told that Tuan Rohaizan is very “contractor friendly’.
I am now informed that all application for extension of time by contractor had to be consider by the One Stop Center Committee. The new Pengarah for Jabatan Bangunan has no opportunity to be “contractor friendly”. Thanks to Yg Bhg Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad bin Ismail, Datuk Bandar Kuala Lumpur.]
This is the Stop Work Order issued to KP Property Sdn Bhd for the construction site for the 27 storey condominium in Diamond Square, Wangsa Maju. This recalcitrant contractor has been working until late night with immunity. The residents nearby have lodged many reports with DBKL Call Centre and the Jabatan Bangunan did not take any action. Well, Jabatan Bangunan is very “contractor friendly”! Why?
