Two invalid pipe culverts formed sinkholes at BJ Cove houses
The following plan clearly shows an underground pipe culvert from the IJM Trehaus site that converged directly, vertically at BJ Cove houses from another underground pipe culvert at nearby pond were burst, caused house cracks, floods, formed sinkholes (by two pipe culverts converged in red) and damaged to BJ Cove houses in 2015 due to blockages of waters whenever rains and because of lack of drainage systems. The sinkhole was caused by soil erosion due to waters under the ground.
Therefore, damages to houses were caused by severe soil erosion due to water movement under the road and buildings.
The following is an underground pipe culvert from the IJM Trehaus site behind BJ Cove houses at Lintang Bukit Jambul 1:

Waters gushing down from IJM Trehaus site to BJ Cove houses
The nearby pond besides IJM Trehaus site:
Serious Drainage Issues
|A drain under construction by JPS to divert waters from the nearby pond but show no sign to divert waters from IJM Site|
Clearly, the underground pipe culverts leaked and waters seeped through the cracks as it did not happen immediately but over a period of time!
Despite the underground pipe culverts declared invalid by JPS and the Penang City Council’s (Majlis Perbandaran Pulau Pinang, i.e. MBPP) has issued stop work orders directing the developers, Worldwide Venture Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of IJM Land to rectify the damages within 1 and 2 weeks time since 2015 (as per the attached letters below), multiple wall cracks, slabs collapsed, PBA water pipes burst, leakage charges, damaging ceiling, electrical DB board, and tiles fallen, broken/popped up, are still pending settlement and remedial works to be carried out by parties responsible for the damages since 2014 !!
Letters from Developers: Worldwide Venture Sdn Bhd, an subsidiary of IJM Land:
Damages appeared after IJM began construction works in 2014, like hill clearing, rock-blasting, piling and digging culvert at Trehaus site. As a result, waters seepage through multiple cracks on the ground, walls, tiles fallen from roofs and popped up from the ground due to vibration from rock-blasting and piling for the building.

The underground pipe leaked and waters seeped through the cracks!
|Sinkhole at BJ Cove house no. 20|
|IJM converted the sinkhole into a manhole waters from their underground pipe culvert at Trehaus|
|Sinkhole at house 20 is covered up by IJM’s underground pipe culvert from IJM Trehaus|
|IJM converting the sinkhole at BJ Cove no. 20|
We demand immediate enforcement & Actions:
1. The parties responsible must quickly without further delays, to settle the claims and start the remedial works to the damaged houses, as both JPS has declared underground pipe culverts invalid and MBPP has issued stop work orders directed the developers, Worldwide Venture Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of IJM Land to rectify the damages within 1 and 2 weeks time since 2015!
2. Divert waters from the two invalid underground pipe culverts, which it deems as illegal from IJM Trehaus site and the nearby ponds must be close and grout as a long term solution to the problems.
