Towering worry for residents

THE presence of two telecommunication transmission towers above a shoplot unit in the commercial area of Taman Putera, Seri Kembangan, is worrying residents there.

Several of them have complained of health problems since the transmission towers were put up in March and the second one earlier this month.

One of the residents, Dr Sua Chong Keh, claimed that the towers belonged to two telecommunication companies.

“We want to know whether the structures were put up with the approval of the authorities,” said Dr Sua, who is also a City Hall advisory board member.

Seri Kembangan is under the jurisdiction of the Subang Jaya Muni-cipal Council.

Dr Sua, whose house is located behind the shop-lot, claimed that there had also been three minor explosions.

It is learnt that the owner of the shoplot was being paid between RM1,500 and RM2,000 monthly “as rental to house the transmission towers”.

Dr Sua said he was told that transmission units could be erected on top of buildings in commercial areas but they should be some distance away from the nearest residential unit.

“But the towers are only about 50ft from the nearest house.

“Residents are worried about any untoward incident happening,’’ he added.

He said if the towers were legally erected, then the contractors should show the development order from the council.

He said although such structures were usually approved in commercial areas, the two towers were too close to the residential units.

He said the contractors should have consulted the residents first before put-ting up the structures.

Another resident, Yap King Kun, said since the towers were put up, he had been coughing constantly.

“I also have a nauseating feeling.

“But I feel well when I am out of the house,’’ he added.

Another resident, Tan Kai Soon, also complained of health problems.

“The towers should be removed if they are illegal,’’ he added.
