KUALA LUMPUR: The Public Works Department research unit has been directed to compile a report on the monitoring of landslides and rockslides along the North-South Expressway and federal roads. 

Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the report would contain measures that have to be taken to prevent land and rockslides. 

“The report which is expected to focus on the close monitoring system for roads which are prone to such incidents, would be tabled in the Cabinet,” he said after inaugurating the Indian Cultural Centre at the Indian High Commission here. 

He said the ministry was undertaking the report following a rockslide in Bukit Lanjan which blocked both lanes of the New Klang Valley Expressway on Nov 26.  

Clearing work is in progress. 

Samy Vellu said the report is expected to cover the geological aspects and content of water on land besides the roads.
