Dear Tan Sri, I am concerned about the encroachment of development closer and closer to the klang gate valley quartz ridge as shown in the picture from 2005 till today. This place is unique and a place for many nature lovers, hikers, photographers as well as an important heritage to be conserved and protected. I hope Tan Sri can investigate this matter and prevent any further development near to the klang gate valley quartz ridge.
