An abandoned five-storey low cost flats project in Taman Setia Indah, Bandar Dato’ Onn will be rescued soon under the new management of Kumpulan Prasarana Rakyat Johor (KPRJ) through a housing foundation project for the poor.
The flats comprising of 316 units were abandoned for almost 7 years as it did not acquire a Certification of Fitness for Occupation (CFO). However, it will receive an allocation of RM4.8 million by the Federal and State governments to solve the issue by end of this year.
“The flats did not receive CFO prior to its sewerage system and other road issues occurring around the area. KPRJ will perform an assessment of the project area as their first step to solve the matter,” said Menteri Besar Johor, Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin during his working visit to the Tebrau Parliamentary area.
Khaled continued that this housing project can accommodate the poor which involves only a monthly rental of RM100.
On another story, a RM25 million elevated interchange will be built this year at Taman Bukit Mutiara by Johor Bahru City Council (MBJB) to overcome traffic congestion and flood from occurring in the area.
