On 24th of september 2017 (Sunday), the two of our group went to Tanjung Piai for a study tour.
This is some photos of the facilities and services that we manage to captured in Tanjung Piai Johor also known as The Southern most Tip of Mainland Asia .
So, this is a sketches of Tanjung Piai’s layout.
In case one of you find it difficult to understand the sketches we provide full layout of Tanjung Piai.
The environmental factors had affected the design, layout and availability of services there and the constraint in providing the services.
As we all know, it is Natural Park responsibility to maintain and support a wide variety of flora and fauna. From our trip investigation, Tanjung Piai are covered an area of over 926 hectares where almost 526 hectares of land is coastal mangrove while the rest of it inter-tidal mudflats. There are only a few building can be found around Tanjung Piai since it is surrounded by coastal mangrove forest so we can only recognize a few services. As we mentioned above, we only identified a few services which is water supply system, electrical and lighting system, sanitary system and safety instrument. Since there are a few services available, we identified some of the environmental factors.
First and foremost, the unpredictable weather of Malaysia leading to uncertain temperature of that particular area. This can affects in providing services in certain area because not all services can adapt the unpredictable environment such as electrical and lighting system. Like Tanjung Piai in which did not provide any electrical and lighting system along the broadwalk due to hot temperature up to 32 celcius.
Other common environmental factors is air movement. Since Tanjung Piai are located near to the sea, the strong air movement will causes the sea level to rise rapidly. In this case, the installation of sanitary system are efficiently being installed and the material used are usually more water resistant.
Besides, the humidity is one of the environmental factors that had affected the availability of services there. As we all know, moisture is the form of humidity and precipitation can only slow the fire down and reduce its intensity. This means that safety instrument such as fire extinguisher should be installed for safety purpose even though humidity can helps in fire prevention.
