Malaysia: Developers can soon access comprehensive information on hill slopes for any future high-rise projects in Kuala Lumpur. The Kuala Lumpur Slope Information System (KuLSIS) provides a 360 degree 3D view of the capital’s topography.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said they were in the midst of determining the charges for developers to use the system.
“We will discuss this with the Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association (Rehda) and other relevant parties,” he said after launching KuLSIS at Institut Latihan DBKL.
“The system can be used in every proposed plan sent to DBKL.
“Among the data includes rivers, roads, geology and rain distribution in KL,” he said.
He added the data was first collected and recorded in the Kuala Lumpur Hazard and Risk Map which was done in partnership with Ikram Premier Consulting Sdn Bhd.
KuLSIS was created to integrate all relevant information for complete information on hill slopes.
“Based on research, 1,740 slopes have been identified as high-risk out of 3,299 slopes in Kuala Lumpur,” he said, adding they were in areas like Cheras, Bukit Dinding and Sungai Penchala, among others.
He added DBKL is now involved in conducting remedial work on these slopes.
