KUALA LUMPUR: The rockfall along the New Klang Valley Expressway is a stark reminder to the authorities that failure to make maintenance and safety a way of life could result in disaster, said National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health chairman Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye. 

Lee, who is also Kuala Lumpur City Hall Environment Committee chairman, said when a rockslide of this magnitude occurred, “we cannot simply blame it on nature”. 

“While the Government has spent billions on development, including building modern expressways, we are often found wanting when it comes to maintaining and making them safe and accident-free.” – Bernama
