Noise from nearby quarry irks residents

By dharmender singh

RESIDENTS in USJ 27, Subang Jaya, are fed up with the blasting and noise of heavy machinery at a nearby quarry.

Resident Alex Lim said he had to endure the constant sound of heavy machinery crunching rocks since he shifted in June.

“Often the crunching goes on until midnight, including weekends. We are exposed to the noise every day of the week,’’ Lim said.

He said for the past one month the frequency of the blasting had increased from just two a day to eight.

He added that there used to just be one blast in the morning and another in the afternoon but lately it had increased to between three and four blasts in the morning and an equal number in the afternoon.

Another resident, Sathi Govindarajoo, said the residents also had to put up with a lot of dust from the quarry.

“Thick layer of dust settles on our vehicles in less than an hour after a wash. The residents and children are also inhaling the polluted air daily.

“We are worried about the effects of the dust on our respiratory systems,’’ he said.

He hoped that the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) would take action against the company operating the quarry to protect the residents and put a stop to the incessant noise pollution.
