Don't think it's possible. Malaysian city canals carry huge flows during monsoon seasons, so all the "heavenly" features would be washed off, and replaced with red mud after the flow subsides. Plus there is always a danger of pedestrians/visitors caught in those waterways and washed away. Unless there is another form of irrigation system to carry monsoon or heavy storm water away, it is not possible to make our rivers the same as Cheonggyecheon in Seoul.

Making Kuala Lumpur a great place to live in
Tuesday April 3, 2012
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...8&sec=business

The Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley NKEA 2020 targets are to be in the top 20 most livable cities list and the top 20 in economic growth.

...

Intensive efforts are ongoing to upgrade the water quality of Kuala Lumpur’s main rivers and beautifying and developing its surroundings via the River of Life EPP, going green through the planting of more trees in the city, developing iconic places within the city and providing comfortable walkways for the pedestrians.

...

In terms of environment protection, the Government expects 15% completion of River Beautification Construction for Phase 1 under the River of Life project, and 30,000 trees to be planted.

hoi, can't you see cheongyecheon is just a small stream? does Sungai Klang is small stream like that?

plus, (i dunno how many times i tell this) that 'clean water' you see in cheongyecheon is not real. it's UNDERGROUND WATER pumped for tourism purpose! the real cheongyecheon water has a very small volume.

i think the purpose is to make the 'forgotten' river(s) a lively presentable not so longkang-like place 'attractive' once again that runs through the city. it has potential even tho it cant bring back the river's glory days years back.

anyway, aku rasa antara tempat yg memerlukan spring-cleaning tahap gaban will be area Masjid India Jln Melayu sana.. yucks that place is horrible. sebagai contoh, aku heran mcm mana kedai makan kat lorong tu (dulu kat ngan Maybank tu dunno la kalau that maybank still ada) masih beroperasi. the selangor mansion aiyo that place also needs to go la.

THE first phase of the River of Life (RoL) project in Precinct 7 near Masjid Jamek will start in the second half of this year, said Kuala Lumpur mayor Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail.

Ahamd Fuad said the project would not be successful if people did not change their attitude in preserving and keeping the rivers clean.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) collects about 20 tonnes of garbage daily from the rivers in Kuala Lumpur, which has caused fears pertaining to the project, said Ahmad Fuad at the signing ceremony between Aecom Perunding Sdn Bhd.

The project is part of the Greater Kl/Klang Valley National Key Economic Area under the Economic Transformation Programme.


Seeing the details: Ahmad Fuad (left) looking through the documents for the project. With him are Lo (right) and Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing secretary-general Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib.

It is aimed at developing public recreational spaces, tourist attractions and retail outlets.

The beautification will be carried out in 11 precincts along 10.7km of the Klang and Gombak rivers.

Aecom was chosen to work with DBKL on the River of Life Masterplan and Precinct 7 design after winning the River of Life Masterplan International Competition held from April 12 to June 15 last year.

Fuad said city folks did not have the level of understanding needed to preserve the rivers but instead looked at the waterways as a dumping ground.

“Restaurants and factory operators also tend to channel their waste to the rivers.

“The New Year Eve’s celebration was a clear indication of how much garbage was thrown by the public. We spent so much money on waste management, all of which can be saved,” he said.

He said RM4bil had been allocated for this project which had three components — river cleaning, river master planning and beautification and river development.

“About RM3bil is for cleaning while the rest will be for beautification. All land along the river has been frozen by the ministry from any development.

“Perhaps City Hall should have better enforcement to keep the rivers clean. There is no point of having the best infrastructure if the attitude of the people does not reflect it,” he said.

During the event, Aecom regional managing director of planning, design and development Southeast Asia Scott Dunn said RoL was a redevelopment project which involved residential and retail outlets along the river.

He said the project would have a network of pedestrian walkways while maintaining the heritage sites.

“People will be able to walk and cycle along the river. Eco-friendly features will be included as well with landscapes. The project will also involve flood-mitigation by deepening the river,” he said.

The river-cleaning will be conducted along a 110km stretch of the Klang River basin to improve the water quality for sports and recreational purposes.

The signing ceremony was held between Fuad and Aecom chief executive officer for Asia Dickson Lo and witnessed by Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing secretary-general Datuk Ahmad Phesal Talib.

Aecom’s track record includes the Jinji Lake in Suzhou, China, Hudson River in New York, United States, and Fort Bonifacio in Manila.

The public will be engaged on both the RoL masterplan and design of Precinct 7 to ensure feedback is incorporated before plans are finalised.

RM4b plan for river projects
By June Ramlee
Published: 2012/05/23


EKOVEST Bhd and Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), project delivery partners acting on behalf of the government, plan to call for some RM4 billion worth of tenders by as early as next year to help clean and beautify the Klang and Gombak rivers.

The work is part of the River of Life project.

Minister of Federal Territories and Urban Wellbeing Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said the cleaning tenders will be out first.

"We have set aside a total of RM3 billion for cleaning and RM1 billion for beautifying. We expect the rivers to be cleaned and certified as Class B (where it is safe to touch) within the next five years," Raja Nong Chik told reporters after launching the Asian Strategy and Leadership Institute (Asli)'s Second National Conference on Greater Kuala Lumpur/ Klang Valley - Towards a World Class Sustainable City here yesterday.


He said at present the river was "toxic".

"Both rivers are at Class 3 or 4, which is very bad," he added.

On Invest KL, Raja Nong Chik said so far two companies from the US and Europe have put in strong interest to invest in Malaysia.

"Last year, we had six; this year so far there are two companies from the US and Europe. I was in Europe in March and received a lot of enquires from companies there interested in the services sector, manufacturing and oil and gas here," he said, without elaborating on the companies.

Meanwhile, Asli chief executive Datuk Dr Michael Yeoh said the conference brought together key experts in city planning and development, policy formulators and decision makers, entrepreneurs and investors, foreign multinational corporations, universities, think tanks and civil society organisations to discuss how the Greater KL/Klang Valley National Key Economic Area will benefit the stakeholders and the business community.

this is a last year article but worth reading..
many questions answered here..
not sure posted here before..

http://www.thesundaily.my/news/164340

THE RM4 billion River of Life project is set to transform Kuala Lumpur’s forgotten drains into enjoyable rivers

Along with the MRT, the Malaysia-Singapore high-speed rail system, and an efficient solid waste management system, the River of Life project makes up part of the Greater KL national key economic area (NKEA) within the Economic Transformation Programme.

This project aims to transform a 10.7km stretch along the Klang and Gombak rivers into a vibrant and liveable waterfront with high economic value.

Although it sounds dramatic, it is something that many urban citizens have been looking forward to for several years.

Especially after having experienced gorgeous urban riversides such as Singapore’s Boat Quay, and the walks along London’s Thames and Paris’ Seine, it would seem a shame if Kuala Lumpur’s rivers are perceived as no more than large conduits for storm water which the city’s denizens cross over unnoticed daily.

This is ironic especially since the birth of the city itself is known to have largely revolved around its rivers. The confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers was where tin miners used to stop on the way from Klang town to tin deposits up in Ampang. It is thus laudable that the government has decided to invest in this crucial element of our urban ecosystem.

Interestingly, the master plan for this project was decided upon by a combination of submissions for prequalifications, a jury made up of international and local experts and authorities, as well as a public online vote.

The resulting winning master plan was conceived by AECOM, a global but US-originated provider of architecture, building engineering, transportation and other services.

Imagined up within the pages of AECOM’s master plan is a panoply of urban goodies that go well beyond the riverside cafes and restaurants of Boat Quay.

You want riverbanks from which you can kneel down and touch the water? Got that. AECOM has proposed that the normally low waters be dammed so that the water level rises to street level. The vision is that pavements are then widened or cantilevered out so that they are close to the river, says Aecom Southeast Asia’s regional managing director for planning, design and development, Scott Dunn.

You want the water taxis of Bangkok or Kuching? Got that. Though these will be more to shuttle between recreational facilities, not as a method of commuting, adds Dunn.

“Part of the proposal is to dam the river in five places so that we create a dam structure that brings the water level up which can then have water taxis on. The dam is constructed in a way that if the rain does come, they can release the water so the water level will come down.”

Want wetlands, an eco centre, water activities? Check, check and check too. These are all being considered for just Precinct 1 alone (there are 11 precincts planned in total).

There will also be some mixed use developments along the way although the master planners have said that these are not intended to just be luxury developments.

“There will be some public housing blocks within the area of the River of Life project,” says Dunn. “We want to support them, not displace them. We will have mixed developments with public housing elements”

One crucial step however will be to tackle the pollution of Klang River from the source in order to improve the river condition from Class 3, ie unsafe for body contact, to Class IIB, ie for recreational use with body contact.

The Ekovest-MRCB JV has been given a letter of intent to be the project delivery partner (PDP) in the cleaning and beautification of the Klang-Gombak rivers.

“We are appointing the PDP for three years,” mayor Tan Sri Ahmad Fuad Ismail has said in a recent report. “The most coordination work is done in these three years … We have allocated RM3 billion for the cleaning and RM1 billion for the beautification.”

We speak to Scott Dunn, regional managing director for planning, design and development for Aecom South East Asia, the practice which designed the winning River of Life masterplan.

Tell us about Aecom
Aecom has an office here of about 200 people. We are very much a locally based company as well. We also work with a few local partners here in KL. We’ve done a lot of private land development, a lot of the railway line.

Aecom has actually worked on some river revitalisation projects, like in Tianjin, we worked on the Hai river as well as the recent redevelopment of the Singapore river from Boat Quay up to Robinson Quay. In Suzhou, we worked on the whole waterfront around Jinji lake. In United States, we worked on a lot of the rivers around Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Washington. They all have similar conditions where they have industrial land that was along the water and we created plans for redevelopment.

How much was the proposal determined by the KL City Plan 2020?
The overall planning of looking at KL going forward was part of it but I think there was also input from the Economic Planning Unit, and there were various groups that had involvement in terms of the Klang River clean-up.

It was announced that there would be different levels, dealing firstly with water quality in KL, and then the second part was the actual beautification of the one stretch of the riverfront, and the third side of it will be the redevelopment that gets spurred out of this beautification project.

How would you describe the edge Aecom’s proposal had over competing masterplans?
The river itself is very complex; there’s a lot of built infrastructure along and over it. So with that context, we looked at different areas where we could provide linkages and corridors back to adjacent communities and really stress the point that it’s not just about the river itself but it’s about everybody who lives and works around the area and how you can reconnect those people back to the waterfront itself.

There’s also the human factor, to allow people to use it as a recreational quarter, so they can ride a bike along the whole 10km stretch, down and back without having to cross a highway or road, and for pedestrians to walk down to the waterfront.

Our proposal was about connecting, activating, rejuvenating and enlivening [the river]. That element of caring about the river corridor and creating all these opportunities for people to re-engage with the water was part of the success of our solution.

[One part of the plan] is about allowing people to come down and walk along it. In certain places we bridge out over the water so we create places where people can get out and look over the top of the water. In other places, we have steps that come down so people can touch the water and then in some places, you can actually go into the water.

The other part of it was pretty practical. It’s something that, given the constraints of the site, was implementable, cost effective, and achieves the main objectives laid out in the brief. We weren’t doing anything that was really flamboyant, extravagant or really really expensive for the government to implement at this point in time. In addition to that, we created and identified development parcels which would add a lot of economic value, helping to rejuvenate parcels of land that really weren’t that functional.

Which real life riverside areas inspired your masterplan proposals?
The Thames river in London was one in terms of the redevelopment that’s been done in the central part of London, San Antonio Walk in Texas and the Melbourne river waterfront. That one connects really well back to adjacent communities so we use that for inspiration.

The Seine river in Paris has done a really good job creating activities along the riverfront, so we compare that to the activities that we’re creating here. The Singapore river, in terms of a tropical environment, creating walkable areas that are not too far because of the heat and humidity.

We also looked at the Boston river system which is very ecologically diverse. It has a lot of great landscape that’s been done along it, and part of our concept of a 100 year forest about landscape that changes over time and builds to a mature tropical forest in 100 years, came from Boston.

How much will the eventual project differ from the proposal?
The competition was a relatively short two-month period. The real work comes in all the technical issues that come up now. Some of the different areas along the waterfront might vary from the initial plan but the original intent should be in line with what the vision is. Typically that stays pretty true.

How committed is the client, DBKL, to fulfilling this master plan?
It’s a commitment both by the city and the Prime Minister’s office. And I think both of them stated so publicly at the official launch. I get the impression having worked in other cities on similar types of projects, that there is a very strong commitment to this as a vision of transformation. This transformation will be beneficial to not only the community but the greater good of the country.

What will happen when heavy rains fill up the main channel of the river?
As a storm water drainage channel, it will still function that way. It still will prevent flooding, and actually in our plan we increase the amount of volume for storage so we added more ponds, more canals and in places enlarge the river.

Will utility pipes and cables crossing the river stay?
Most of it will stay, some of it will get diverted or relocated, and some of it where we can we’ll put it underground, so we can do something on top of it. But the more detailed technical analysis is the next step. Now it’s a matter of incorporating ideas that some of the stakeholders have come up with since it’s gone out to the public. Probably in the next three months, we’ll work with the different development agencies and with the city.

How effective do you think the PDP will be in totally cleaning up the water so that people will feel comfortable eating next to them?
Eating there shouldn’t be a problem. It requires a little bit of maintenance in terms of water quality, to keep the garbage out of it and to keep the smell down. That doesn’t take too much but to get the water quality that they are shooting for, it’s going to take more work. They’re trying to get to a much better grade of water quality, where you can actually swim in it, eat the fish from the river.

We speak to the government’s Performance Management & Delivery Unit (Pemandu) on the River of Life project:

The River of Life Joint Development Committee has been set up to monitor the project. Can you tell me who are in this committee?
The ROL JDC is headed by the Mayor of Kuala Lumpur and comprises three taskforces namely those for river cleaning, river beautification and land development. The river cleaning taskforce is led by the Department of Irrigation and Drainage, the beautification taskforce is led by the Master Plan Department in DBKL and the land development taskforce is led by the Economic Planning and Development Coordination Department.

What timeline is envisioned for the decision on whether the Ekovest-MRCB JV is to play the lead role in the cleaning and beautification of the 10km Klang-Gombak river?
The lead role for river cleaning is headed by DID Malaysia and the lead role for river beautification is played by the Master Plan Department of DBKL. The River of Life joint development committee (ROL JDC) is in the process of seeking the services of a PDP (Project Delivery Partner) to assist the ROL JDC in coordinating the various projects planned for river cleaning and river beautification.

Will selling or privatising the parcels along the river be the main source of income for the government to recover the project’s cost?
The current government land parcels along the river is undervalued due to the state of our rivers. Through the river beautification and river cleaning works, the government land along the river is expected to appreciate in value, as seen with riverfront properties in Singapore, Korea and other major cities in the world. The investment in river cleaning and river beautification works will result in returns of investment in terms of land appreciation to the government.

It has been reported that the government is waiting for Phase One of the River of Life project to be completed before it opens the land to be developed. When is Phase One due to be completed?
River beautification works for phase 1 will begin mid next year and is expected to complete by the end of 2012 or early 2013.

well, the above article have answer my curiosity since i wonder how they are going to construct all the beauty features without being washed away by the storm water.
Hope the project will turn well and become something that could proud of...well, maybe not on par with the "South korea river" but close enough as our river is far more complex than the one in Korea.
