Creating a vibrant KL waterfront



THE River of Life (RoL) project was initiated to transform the Sungai Klang-Gombak corridor in the city centre of Kuala Lumpur into a vibrant and liveable waterfront of high economic value.

This will be achieved by raising the water standards of Sungai Klang-Gombak and its tributaries to recreational standards by focusing on three key areas — river cleaning, river beautification and land development.

This year will see the commencement of construction works for river beautification in Precinct 7. The first stage of laying the interceptor pipe for river cleaning in Precinct 7 will also be implemented during the year.

The construction works will create visibility for the RoL project. The public will be able to see the actual river beautification works in the heart of the city centre.

Relocation of squatters will be one of the focuses under river cleaning. Based on mutual understanding and for the good of the general public, the Selangor government and the Federal Government are working closely on the relocation programme.

The economic impact study of the land development programme will start this year. Its objective is to seek the most feasible development model to unlock the value of government-owned land along the 10.7km RoL corridor and recoup an expenditure worth RM4 billion for the project.
