StarMetro’s report on April 13.StarMetro’s report on April 13.

LIFTS at PPR Sri Aman in Jinjang, Kuala Lumpur were shut down for short periods to facilitate repair works.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) in a statement said operation logs from December 2023 to April 2024 showed that Block A lifts were not operational for just five days.

“Three of the days in March were to repair the wire rope and two this month were to fix the cam bearing for the doors.

“Other than that, the lifts operated as usual according to the standard speed specifications for public housing which is 105 megapascals,” according to the DBKL Corporate Planning Department.

City Hall was responding to StarMetro’s report, “Lift woes plague PPR Sri Aman folk,” published on April 13.

Residents had claimed that usually only one or two lifts would be operational at a time.

They also said the lifts moved slowly and some lift buttons were not working.

Community activist Yee Poh Ping had attributed the issue to improper use and limited lifespan of the amenity.

DBKL acknowledged the damage to the hall call button on the 10th floor of the block, and attributed this to vandalism.

“DBKL is awaiting delivery of new components for the board and fabricated plate.

“Installation work is expected to be completed by the end of April,” said the statement.

DBKL stressed the need for responsible usage by residents.

“Improper actions such as riding motorcycles into lifts can damage them,” the media statement said. — By ETHEL SIAO
