New lookout point in Puncak Setiawangsa

The proposed plans for the Puncak Setiawangsa Look-Out-Point which was revealed by Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib on Feb 11.

Plans are afoot to build a new lookout point at the site of the Puncak Setiawangsa landslide, which occurred in 2012.

The hill, which is about 200ft (61m) in height, will also have a 100ft (30.5m) flag pole at the top.

The construction of the lookout point will be done concurrently with slope rectification work currently being done by DBKL.

The work, which began in April last year, costs RM23.2mil and is expected to be completed by July this year.

The massive landslide in December 2012 caused part of the 60m concrete embankment to collapse, burying the only access road from Taman Puncak Setiawangsa.

There were no casualties but two houses were torn down to make way for a buffer zone between the slope and the collapsed embankment and neighbouring homes.
