SHAH ALAM: There are still signs of development work taking place in the area adjacent to what used to be the vegetable farm at the Bukit Cahaya Seri Alam Agriculture Park despite the stop-work order issued by the Selangor state government last week. 

A check by The Star at 3pm yesterday saw several lorries laden with concrete slabs and earth moving about at the site near the boundary where mix development work was being carried out. 

The 800ha park is being managed by the Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Ministry since 1996. 

According to a park ranger, a stream which used to flow in the area has now disappeared and part of the virgin jungle had already been destroyed due to development taking place at the fringes especially near the fruit farm and bamboo park.  

Another area that has seen environmental pollution is the Sungai Baru Dam which sits directly opposite the U10 area, a site where bungalows are being constructed. 

Mud and debris can be seen falling into the lake from the hill slopes and the park workers believe it will become worse if remedial action is not taken.
