Road works are being carried out by a housing developer, at a site which is roughly after Papan, on the left side of Ipoh-Lumut Highway, before the 'Existing access road' shown on the map. I think it is too close to the 'Disposal site' as mentioned in the map, for comfort.
Each time I drive past the completed housing project on the right, I wonder why it is still mainly unoccupied. I like the apparent cozy location which is next to a hill, suitable for living away from the busy town centres of Lahat, Pusing or Batu Gajah. Is it because of its proximity to the radioactive dumpsite?
SPNB (Syarikat Perumahan Negara Bhd) is the developer of the above completed project known as Lahat Indah, which is located away from the 'Disposal site', across the Ipoh-Lumut Highway, on the right, after the 'Existing access road' shown on the map. The project has been issued with CFO, and according to SPNB website, the project has 128 unsold units which range from Rm100,000 (24 Single-storey terrace houses (20'x65'); 45 units from Rm110,000 (20'x70'); 48 units from 120,000 (22'x70'); 4 units from Rm145,000 (Single-storey semi-detached (35'x80'); 6 units from Rm165,000 (40'x80'); and a solitary unit of single-storey bungalow (no land area mentioned) going for R322,816!
