Yep, I think this topic should be discussed under Malaysia 2020 not under ROL. However, hopefully our football team can be qualified for Olympic 2012 in London, and we will get more Olympic medals. However, so far our hope only in badminton, as another sport we quite strong, squash, with Dato' Nicole failed to get the vote for 26 sports that will be featured in Olympic 2012, but possibly for Olympic 2020. Thus we need to improve our performance first in various sports as no point to be the host but our athletes cannot win any medals. Look at South Korea they prepared so long to be the host for international events until they ready in year 1988 and Beijing in 2008. Back to the topic please..

For every Olympic Games, IOC members will vote for 2 new sports. Squash has been put forward with other 4 new sports (5 altogether) golf, karate, roller skating, rugby sevens but failed to get through (2/3 votes). Some games also can be axed such like for Olympic 2012, they axed baseball and softball, initially squash and karate have been nominated to replace both sports. Yep karate also failed as only 5 martial arts gone through; fencing, boxing, wrestling, judo and taekwondo. Badminton only has been introduced for the first time in Olympic Games year 1992 in Barcelona. Maybe we need to encourage more people to play our traditional sports like sepak takraw and silat, then we can get more medals. Back to the topic please..

Nop, squash still failed to get the vote for Olympic 2016 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, also karate..so frustrated. If Olympic 2020, need to find another Nicol. They approved golf and rugby sevens (a seven-man version of rugby union) instead for Olympic 2016. The golf won because of strong lobby by Tiger Woods and other rich golf players.

LOL, isn't that the Yarra River in Melbourne. Been there, hope they can learn from them.

Without fail if it rains upstream with or without the smart tunnel in operation.The water looks like teh tarik not to mention whats in the water.

That's why we call her KUALA LUMPUR...

The River of Life will be included the river locks to level up and level down the river stream when needed mostly for boats/river cruise and during heavy rain or tidal. At the same time it can be functioning as a traffic controller along the river. The cleaning up process also will be included rubbish traps and many other methods. So one day, our Klang/Gombak river will be at par with other rivers in other countries.

you r rite about the tall order. this is one big concern everyone is talking. engineering technology can tame but at to what extend it may apply to here especially in kuala lumpur, the center of two big rivers meet and under a huge annual rainfall.

if locks r used, where will the rainwater channel to? there arent enuf space in kl to sacrifice for a large retention pond.

AECOM involved in many projects in revitalisation of rivers worldwide. I think they know what they going to do acknowledging the nature of Malaysia with the heavy rainfall throughout the year. ROF comprises 110km stretch long river from Titiwangsa (Kg Puah) and end at Klang River in Klang. The river expansion with the connection of few retention ponds or reservoirs outside of KL, in addition to SMART tunnel may solve the overflow river and flash-flood problems.

However, of course we cannot predict that it also can prevent forces of mother nature such as big flood if it hit the city as happened to other cities in the world. The human engineering technology has its limit no matter how advance it is but we always going through experiments, trials and errors. Thats life all about, isn't it? Give it a go then, shall we?

Statements like these can make people quite nervous because it downplays the engineering scale of the project. After almost after every devastating flood (naturally occurring or accentuated by human development) the river was subjected to straightening, deepening, canalization and most recently diversion. In all these measures, the outcome was to increase the riverís capacity. But this project, through its architectural concepts seem to suggest that the building of artificial islands, marinas and other constricting structures on the banks or in the river itself, is somehow hydrologically possible.

I think most trained engineers or those with an engineering interest will look at this project with high caution because there are many questions to answer and there is absolutely no room for error or experiments. Please do not get me wrong, this project is very inspiring and may even turn out to be a world-class engineering feat but the technical impacts to the hydrology and environment of the Klang Valley have to be heavily scrutinized.

Sure, I never said to downplay or underestimate the engineers in this kind of another 'miracle engineer' project. Two massive engineer projects in KL that received interests are PTT and SMART Tunnel and both appeared in Discovery Channel. Thats why I said in the beginning, those consultants surely knowing the nature of our rivers and climate and take those into account in their master plan. Better look this project with positive rather than being pessimistic.

We have to look at it from all angles and at this stage of time, we can afford some degree of constructive pessimism if you realise that it's ultimate aim is to prevent the potentially disastrous excesses of over-optimism.
