KUALA LUMPUR: The 14 packages of the River Of Life (ROL) project worth RM400mil are expected to be completed by October next year.

Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Douglas Uggah Embas said the project is progressing well and currently on schedule.

"We are confident that all 14 packages will be completed by October next year," he told reporters during a site visit at the Sungai Kelang on Tuesday.

He said the ROL project entails the rehabilitation of the Sungai Kelang and Sungai Gombak, and beautification works on an initial 10.7km stretch.

"Despite many issues arising from the relocation of the riverbank's squatters, we managed to resolve all through discussions and dialogue, to enable the project to be carried out smoothly," he added.

He said the ROL project involved the setting up of 14 water treatment plant, 361 gross pollutant traps, eight trash rakes and river bank stabilisation.

Uggah said the project will turn Sungai Kelang into a river with Class 2b water quality. "Class 1 is the best rating for river water quality but currently, Sungai Kelang is in Class 3," he added.

The River of Life Project is an Entry Point Project identified in the Greater Kuala Lumpur National Key Economic Area under the government's Economic Transformation Programme.

It aims to transform the rivers running through the heart of Kuala Lumpur by undertaking river rehabilitation, beautification of riverbanks and river corridor development. - Bernama

To be ready by 2013? WE are very ambitious in attempting to achieve something. I hardly see any project that really follow the time line they set except for MRT project. most of the project are delayed. Kalau tak percaya, we wait for BRT Klang which was announced to be completed by March next year. Maybe that is time when they start the pecah tanah

Cleaning up Malaysia's rivers of life

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - In the hills to the east of Kuala Lumpur, the Klang River is clean enough for visitors to play in. But just a few hundred metres downstream, the water darkens and rubbish clogs the banks.

By the time it reaches the city centre, the river is the pale brown of milky tea and so toxic it's dangerous to touch.

But after decades of neglect, the government is spending more than $1bn to revive the Klang and Gombak rivers that gave Kuala Lumpur - which translates roughly as "muddy confluence" - its name.

"The River of Life is one of the cornerstone projects in Kuala Lumpur, in addition to public transport," said Mohd Azharuddin Mat Sah, a director of the government's Performance Management and Delivery Unit, who is coordinating the project.

"We learned from other cities like Seoul, Vancouver, upgrading and beautifying the areas around the river really helps a city become more livable. And Kuala Lumpur is naturally lucky to have two rivers flowing through it."

Looking forward for this wonderful project, awaiting to see the rivers turning clean and clear back, while the walkways along the river certainly has the potential to be transformed into a nice waterfront walk with many local activities. I'm afraid vandalism is going to be a major concern too once this River of Life project is done.
