Noticed the 'rigid' frames observed from the pics, so most probably it's static & not foldable lor - correct if wrong hehehe ???

Ps those 'umbrellas' is in Madinah, not Makkah !!!

KUALA LUMPUR: Ekovest Bhd is eyeing RM600 million worth of construction job wins in 2017 on top of its current total order book of RM6.6 billion.

Ekovest managing director Datuk Seri Lim Keng Cheng said the company is aggressively tendering for more projects, particularly the beautification works from Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and the 1Malaysia Housing Projects for Civil Servants (PPA1M).

"We must keep on growing," Lim told a press conference at Ekovest's 31st annual general meeting, here today. Besides construction projects, Ekovest is also involved in property development and infrastructure concession businesses.

The company's RM6.6 billion order book comprises of Duke Phase 3 (worth RM3.7 billion), EkoCheras (RM905 million), Duke Phase 2 (RM1.2 billion) and improvement and beautification works at Precinct 7 (RM163 million).

It also includes design and construction of University Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia engineering and electronic faculty (RN42 million), construction of three-stores shop offices (RM30 million) as well as improvement and beautification of Klang and Gombak Rivers (RM412 million).

Hi all,

I've done another 'site inspection' of stretches of the Klang River covered by ROL. Route was as follows:
1. Started from Sultan Ismail Ampang/Sri Petaling LRT line. Walked along the river, towards Menara DBKL
2. Took a detour across Jalan TAR, and towards the new Lulu Hypermarket / Jakel Mall, to have a look at the other branch of the Klang River
3. Walked towards Masjid Jamek
4. Walked from Masjid Jamek to Pasar Seni LRT station, then along the river from Pasar Seni LRT station until KLRCA.
5. Walked along the river from KLRCA until Tun Sambanthan LRT Station.

Photos are in chronological order.

1. View of Klang River from Sultan Ismail LRT station area. As far as I can tell, there hasn't been much progress in this part of the river.. looks the same as I can ever remember. No construction activity.







2. The Klang river around the Jakel mall area is still in a bad state. As far as I can tell, there hasn't been any improvement, and zero work activity going on.







3. Masjid Jamek. Decent amount of construction activity going on. This area is definitely starting to take shape. I have high hopes it will become a nice monument for locals as well as tourists.

















4. Stretch of river from Masjid Jamek to Pasar Seni. The pedestrian pathway along the river at this stretch has been closed off for construction. Not sure what they are doing, but some of the walls / structures along this stretch are being demolished.









5. KLRCA to Tun Sambanthan Monorail Station. It looks more or less the same since the last time I walked through this area 2 or 3 months ago. Vegetation along the river is still lush. It is not the most attractive type of vegetation, but still better than bare concrete.

It also helps mask the stench of the river, which I'm sad to say is still quite strong - after my walk, I could literally taste the river on my tongue. And I'm not even the type of person who is sensitive to smell. However I think the smell fluctuates.. it is worse after rainfall. There were other trips when I wasn't as bothered by the smell.

There were some people cutting parts of the vegetation - I have no idea why or what their plans are. Apart from that, I didn't see much construction or work activity along this stretch.

They were cutting up part of the grass.. I have no idea why, or even whether they are part of some public service dept / ROL contractor or just some random people..

One of them is bald-headed (a male) whilst the other one is long-haired (a female ?) - maybe they're thinking of doing 'something' else eh hehehe !!!

if i were najib i will cover the river up.make it a wide walk way and decorate it with lamps and plants.put barriers along the stretch to prevent vehicles to go through it.no point spending money every decade to beautify the inevitably yellow muddy and stenchy river.

That's probably won't work.
We had try it with sungai "Seagate" previously
Where the weird smelling water enter the sea turning the sea weird smelling then we eat up seafood from those weird smiling sea.Then after heavy downpour we are deep inside the smelly water and have to go to the hospital because of skin rashes.

It does seem the ultimate goal is less recreational but more of doing it so people can drink off it. Afterall it still will cost ten of billions of ringgit to build a tunnel to bring in water from pahang.
