]Four blocks now gone
Wednesday October 18, 2006
By CHOW HOW BAN
Photos by CHUA KOK HWA and ROHAIZAT MD DARUS

THESE two photos show a similar view of the Pekeliling Flats area near the Titiwangsa KL Monorail and Ampang/Seri Petaling Line stations in Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur.

But the glaring difference in the photos is that now Blocks A101 and B91 (on both sides), which once stood 17 stories tall, have been demolished to make way for an urban renewal project called Tamansari.

Since the demolition exercise started on Dec 27 last year, Blocks H99 and J97, consisting of four-storey shophouses (between the two blocks of flats), had been torn down by crawler-mounted excavators.







THEN:This montage of two photos taken in February this year show Block A101 (left) and Block B91 (right). The empty space between the two blocks was where the low-rise commercial-cum-residential H99 and J97 blocks once stood.
The second phase, which began in February, involved the demolition of Blocks A101 and B91.






C. Sivakumar, the safety and health officer of Chang Cherng Trading which has been contracted by project developer ASIE Sdn Bhd to undertake the demolition project, said the project would take another one month to complete.

“We have already demolished Block B91 and reached the third floor of Block A101. The project is on schedule. We have been clearing the debris simultaneously.







NOW:: The same area now after Blocks A101 and B91 were demolished.
“The developer has already started soil tests at the site before starting earthworks.






“We have complied with all the requirements set by the Occupational Safety and Health Department, Department of Environment and KL Monorail, including the handling of debris, noise monitoring, putting up of safety nets around the buildings and tilting tests to ensure the monorail columns are stable,” said.

The demolition project was carried out without using explosives. Instead, the contractors used a method whereby crawler-mounted excavators were hoisted to the top of the flats.

There, the excavators broke the pre-fabricated structures into small concrete pieces before disposing of them through the flat’s air wells used as chutes to transfer debris from the top to the ground level.

Almost all residents of the 11 residential blocks have been relocated to other newer public flats, mainly Desa Rejang PPR in Setapak Jaya.

One of Kuala Lumpur’s earliest public housing projects, the Pekeliling Flats – also known as Tunku Abdul Rahman public flats – were built in 1967. It is learnt that the remaining seven blocks in the area will be demolished at a later stage.

Imagine emerging from the hectic metropolis of Kuala Lumpur, along the Riverwalk and through the Citywalk, into a lush environment of green gardens and pocket parks bordered by contemporary residences and urban offices

Redevelopment: The Pekeliling Flats along Jalan Tun Razak was one of the city's earliest public housing, built in 1967. In its later years, it was one of the capital's most run-down dwellings. The flats were torn down to make way for a commercial and housing project. - 4 February, 2007
