Today, I decided to walk past Central Market to see just how much had changed by the riverside.

At the front car park, the sidewalk is now completely transformed. for an LRT underpass, it looks real neat! Dunno why the lights are on, tho.




The river still looks like a construction site, but I think the work is now halfway done; I saw workers setting giant foundations to the river bottom for the coming dam.




Beyond that, the other side looks less developed, especially behind the Menara Dayabumi. I have no idea if the huge pipe will be removed or not for the pavement. Does anyone else know?




As I walk down, the part gets narrower, but there is also more greenery planted alongside the sidewalk. The willow tress would be really welcoming if they all grow out. Besides some finishing touches, it looks almost done.




They also planted and renovated the top of the LRT ramp, and the very top has a mesh grill, so you can actually view the trainsets enter the tunnel. Didn't take a picture of that, tho. Sorry.






While there are some kinks that need working, I think the Central Market portion looks really neat. I can see couples and tourists walking here in the evening once the river's cleaned up and the willow trees grow out. The authorities need to make sure it stays this way.

I really hope the lrt will go underground before pasar seni station,so that we can utilize the space between central market and the river without any obstruction.

I've realised that we just work on our riverside/pedestrian side but we never really touch the core of the river/riverbed.

Look at Cheonggyecheon river transformation in Korea. They touch all the way to the core of the riverbed.

I really wish that DBKL can tile them riverbed with proper material that will look good both during dry and wet and most importantly, it is DECAY-proof. They can spray nanocoat paint on it or water repellant coating.

Didn't we kind of had this discussion here? If I remember correctly, Cheonggyecheon is an artificial stream where water is controlled by water treatment plants (the actual stream dries out during the dry months). The waterway today is a facade made by pumping water from the Han river.

Our Klang river is a lot more dynamic, so riverbed tiling across KL is a lot more difficult and expensive.

Dynamic? What do u mean by that? Still, i believe it can be done. Can do it phase by phase though.

It's like you have a beautiful toilet seat but toilet bowl full of stain.

Dynamic = The Klang and Gombak rivers rise a lot during downpours, so any kind of river works would be hard to make. The construction we use, where sections of the river are walled-off for riverbed works, are our best bet, but it's gonna be expensive.

IMO, our best bet for our rivers is something like the Pasig River in Manila; murky waters due to natural + manmade sediment, but with landscaped and planted embankments. But that still runs into the problem of embankment flooding during the rains, tho.

Aaah just as i thought, it fluctuates quite dynamicly indeed, hence, that's why i propose for nanocoat/anti-moss buildup coating or tiling or concrete/cement mixture.

Ive seen somewhere in the US they already invented that nano coat spray where it repels water to any surface by 100%. Not even oil, can stick to it.

So it's confirmed that the river will be flooded and the water level raised. Also, two weirs at Central Market and Brickfields... I dunno but I thought we needed more to dam up the waters?

They are building collapsible weirs that will pool water behind it upstream but also allow extra volumes to pass through when rain gets too much, to prevent flooding. I think that concept has been implemented at the Kinta River in Ipoh as seen at the centre right portion of the image below.

Wait till both weirs at Dayabumi & Brickfields get completed, then me think the water will be calmer & the atmosphere will get more beautiful maah !!!
