‘Transmission towers have to be 150m away’

By HAMDAN RAJA ABDULLAH and MAZNI MUSTAFA

MUAR: Housing and Local Government Minister Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting yesterday clarified that all telecommunication transmission towers should be located at least 150m from residential homes.

Speaking to reporters here, he pointed out that one newspaper report stated that the distance was 500m while another reported it as 50m, adding that both reports were wrong.

“I want to clarify the statement made in Penang as I don’t want the local authorities to be confused with the allowed distance.

“According to a guideline issued by the ministry in 1996, any transmission tower should be 150m away from residential homes,” he said before attending an MCA Langkawi Project activity at Bukit Mor here yesterday.

Ong, who visited the Parit Jawa town earlier, also said local authorities would continue to supervise garbage collection and disposal within their jurisdictions.

In Ipoh, the city council wants the Energy, Communication and Multimedia Ministry to come out with standard guidelines for the installation of telecommunication transmission towers.

Datuk Bandar Datuk Talaat Husain said the existing guidelines issued by the ministry were vague and did not give a clear indication as to the type or the minimum height of buildings allowed to for the installation of the towers.
