Bukit Gasing, Is It Still Safe from Developers?
"Friday, 10 Sep 2010 - A tree have fallen across Jln 5/60 due to strong winds early this morning (approx 3am), a closer look at the photo will reveal how steep the slope is. Forces of nature may from time to time cause trees to fall. However, vegetation and root systems will hold the soil in place as evidenced by lack of erosion. Conservation management will further sustain the beauty of the our environment and its sustainability.
Man’s want on development for profits thwart nature’s means of keeping steep slopes safe. Do you wish to rely on planning authorities and developers assurances of retaining walls and man-made drainage (frequently not maintained and poorly designed)? Remember Medan Damansara, Bukit Antarabangsa, Ulu Klang and Amanah Raya."

Since 2006, efforts has been poured in conserving Bukit Gasing and to prevent unstable development to touch the land. However there are always developers that wanna get something from that place. Stop raping Bukit Gasing!
Here is a video of the first protest about luxury bungalow development
I am sure people who live around Bukit Gasing love the nature being part of their life but not changing it into another so called safe developed site. If you are residents of Bukit Gasing, do put some efforts on conserving this small part of nature.
