Lift menders bring relief to disabled couple
Workers could not access equipment during the weekend, according to a source from Dover Elevators.
PETALING JAYA: Technicians are currently repairing the lifts at a Selayang public housing project (PPRT) that malfunctioned on Friday and caused a weekend of distress to a disabled couple.
A source from lift suppliers Dover Elevators Sdn Bhd said the repairs were delayed because workers could not gain access to equipment during the weekend.
He told FMT the company despatched technicians to the Taman Wahyu 2 flats this morning and they were attending to the problem.
“It is not that the repairing process was deliberately delayed,” he said. “We could not access equipment from our office during the weekend.
“Also, the flat’s management office was closed as well. So even if we had the equipment, we could not access the motor room of the affected block.”
Yesterday FMT highlighted the plight of a wheelchair bound couple who said they had suffered loss of wages because two of the three lifts in their block of flats had broken down. The only working lift does not stop at the first floor, where they reside.
The husband, 40-year-old A Thangarajoo, said technicians did some repairs on Friday, but the lifts malfunctioned again on Saturday.
He said he had no choice but to crawl up and down the stairs to get groceries for the household and provisions for his hawker stall.
Contacted today, Thangarajoo confirmed that the lifts were being repaired and said he was relieved.
He said his wife’s employer had cut his wife’s salary by RM600 because she missed work on the weekend.
“I’m just glad that the problem it is being rectified now,” he said.
