Bandar Baru Sentul constantly facing electricity disruption, causing inconvenience to businessmen Dominic Lau Hoe Chai promises to coordinate and resolve the problem Press statement by Batu Gerakan Service Centre Coordinator. Dr Dominic Lau Ho

Members of Gerakan Batu Division led by Batu Gerakan Service Centre Coordinator Dr. Dominic Lau Hoe Chai have earlier visited Bandar Baru Sentul and received complaints from local businessmen regarding the problem of electricity disruption. He then promised to provide assistance.

Lau said that Bandar Baru Sentul has 2 rows of shop houses comprising 16 shops. At the end of September, the main electric circuit box was damaged, leaving 8 shops without supply of electricity. Following their complaints to TNB, technicians connected the circuits from the other 8 shops. However, this caused a massive overloading of the remaining circuit, hence the constant disruption which affects the traders businesses, prompting mass complaints. Not only they complained that the wires connecting to the other main electric circuit box are being placed outside their shops; it has been bitten by rodents, inviting danger to pedestrians. Therefore, they decided to contact Gerakan hoping to solve their problem.

After receiving the complaints, Lau and TNB personal visited the area to understand and give an explanation to the traders. He was told by the TNB personal that the damaged circuit box was caused by a faulty underground cable. In order to solve the problem, digging operations must begin to repair the faulty cable however approval from DBKL must be seek out first. But TNB has not received any approval from DBKL, hindering their ability to start work.

“I have contacted the related department in DBKL to follow up this case. At the same time, I have arranged for TNB personals to meet with the person in charge to speed up document procedures and hence a quicker approval to start digging operations. This is to solve the electricity disruption problem once and for all. This is an issue worth to be proud of for TNB also thanked us for handling this problem for a smoother work in solving the people’s problems.” Dominic Lau added.

Besides, Lau also added that Gerakan will continue to serve the residents of Batu parliamentary constituency, take care of the disadvantaged groups and also hope that the residents could continue to support Gerakan in serving the local.
