THE Mahsuri Apartment in Setia­wangsa got a fresh coat of paint as Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Setiawangsa MP Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique joined residents here recently to repaint the outer wall of the residential blocks which are more than 20 years old.

The repainting programme was made possible through the 1Malaysia Maintenance Fund (TP1M).

TP1M aims to help with repair and maintenance works at private low-cost flats, and in mid-2011, this was extended to include private medium-low-cost housing schemes.

Zulhasnan said the maintenance works at the six-storey walk-up apartment, consisting of five residential blocks, was estimated to cost RM888,000.

“The apartment was built in 1987 and since then, no proper maintenance has been carried out,” he said, adding that the Mahsuri Apartment was the fourth in the Setiawangsa parliamentary constituency to benefit from the TP1M scheme.

Zulhasnan said RM6.32mil had been allocated by TP1M and the “Nadi Kasih” project under the management of the Setiawangsa parliamentary constituency to pay for the repainting and lift repair works for 12 apartments in the constituency.

He said they comprised Sri Kayangan, Seksyen 10; Sri Mercu, Seksyen 10; Kelompok Bunga Raya, AU3; Kelompok Pinang, Keramat Wangsa; Kelompok Mawar, AU3; and Kelompok Embun Emas, AU3.

Five others are Menara Merak Kayangan, AU3; Menara Jentayu, AU3 KL; Apartmen Mahsuri, Taman Setiawangsa; Menara Sri Cendana, Keramat Wangsa; and Apartmen Intan, Taman Setiwangsa.

A project to repair the lift and roof at Menara Rajawali, AU3, will also be carried out.
