in Latest

HULU TERENGGANU: A massive landslide has forced the closure of the Tasik Kenyir road about 30km from Kampung Basung onThursday evening.

The incident started at about 5pm but became worst by 9pm forcing a complete closure of the road that lead to Felda Aring and Gua Musang.

A contractor identified as Chan who is involved with the construction of the second Kenyir dam said he could not return to the site as the road was blocked.

“I had to turn back. I was told that workers at the site could not return home and neither could they go to Aring because there was another landslide some distance from the construction site,” he said.

A visit at the site showed the road was covered by loose earth, boulders and fallen timber.

The hill was still unstable as loud cracks could be heard from 20 metres away.-NST
