Thousands flock to reopening of Titiwangsa Lake Gardens
Sunday, 15 Dec 2019 10:38 PM MYT

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 15 — Titiwangsa Lake Gardens was packed with visitors since early morning to experience its new refurbished landscape.

Excitement filled the air as parked vehicles crammed and thousands of visitors from all walks of life cruised about the area.

Nasri Hashim, 40, from Cheras, told Bernama that the facelift has changed the lake garden’s landscape and provided facilities that piqued visitors’ interest.

“Now with the new look, Taman Tasik Titiwangsa is more appealing in term of its landscape and better facilities such as clean toilets and will become a more fun, recreational place to visit,” said the executive who came with his family.

The lake garden was re-opened today since it was closed for renovation on September 1, 2018, with new attractions such as Water Theme Park and a new canopy.

Another visitor, university student, 19-year old Azim Razak was impressed with the refurbishment works that according to the Wangsa Maju lad, created a more fun and safe environment, especially to those who chose to visit the park alone.

Meanwhile a secretary at a private hospital Qasrina Kasim, 41, from Ampang, said the new 2.5km long bicycle track would provide a much safer track because it was built separately from the walking track.

The park also received a thumbs up from 56-year-old Italian tourist, Monica Taylor.

“This place is very relaxing, very green and nice that it is near the city. It’s nice to have a walk when it is not too hot.

“The difference between here (Malaysia) and there (Italy) is the climate but the leisure is always nice,” she said.

She added that the park is clean because there were no rubbish around even though it was packed with people and seemed to be a safe place for families.

The lake, originated from a mine, was officiated by the nation’s third Prime Minister Tun Hussein Onn on February 1, 1980. — Bernama

KL 2012 @Taman Tugu

Taman Tugu Project

191109 Tugu Trail 114 by Haris Abdul Rahman, on Flickr
Progress in May:

1. A national coalition of environmental NGOs (“MENGO”) organised its fourth annual general meeting and celebrated Earth Day on Saturday, 21st April 2018 at the Khazanah ILMU Bungalow. The leaders and representatives of the MENGO-member NGOs also planted 31 Merbau trees that were first planted as seeds at the Taman Tugu Project launch 2 years ago.

2. The final judging session of the Greenovation Bench and Gazebo Design Competition (“Greenovation”) was posted on the site (the actual judging took place on the 29th of March).

3. The progress of work on the forest trails, Park Maintenance Office and Hindu Temple, and Surau-Jumaat Community Area are ongoing.




Forest trails


In preparing the forest trails, plants from within the site located along the identified pathway, have been transplanted to the identified locations along the forest trails. Additionally, more than 250 of ethnic Malaysian rainforest trees from a nursery in Tanjung Malim have been planted at various locations along the trails. A remainder of approximately 3,750 trees will be added at the forest trails and at other areas within the Taman Tugu site. These trees species varies from about 40 different forest timber and fruit species, measuring from 3 – 12 metres in height. In addition to planting new trees on site, about 1,000 existing trees have been identified and tagged by FRIM to be preserved. These tagged trees can also be found along the forest trails.




rubbish cleared from the park


Besides forest trails and tree plantings, piles of rubbish are also being cleared from the park. It was said that the site used to be an illegal dumping ground and items ranging from TV monitors, toilet bowls, plastics, glass bottles to pieces of clothing have been found amongst the piles of rubbish. So far, more than 40 truck loads of rubbish have been cleared, and the process is still ongoing.




Progress works of Park Maintenance Office & Hindu Temple




Progress works of Surau-Jumaat Community Area and Preservation of Trees


With regards to the Hindu Temple and Surau-Jumaat Community Area, the park team is currently working closely with the newly formed joint Hindu Temple committee, the existing Madarasah Bustanul Ulum community, and the surrounding food stall operators to ensure a smooth transition to their new respective spaces. As for the Park Maintenance Office, Forest House Sdn Bhd (“FHSB”) - the current contractor for the supply, planting, maintenance of trees - will take over the under-construction building once it is ready until the Taman Tugu park management team has been fully formed and mobilised.

The forest trails, Park Maintenance Office and Hindu Temple, and Surau-Jumaat Community Area are scheduled to be completed by Q3 this year. The rest of the park is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019. The tender for the main contractor of the Taman Tugu Park and Khazanah ILMU has been issued and the construction works are targeted to commence by Q3 this year.

Langat Centralised Sewage Treatment Plant
http://www.langatsp.com/
The project involves constructing a Centralised Sewage Treatment Plant (CSTP) with a capacity of 920,000 population equivalents — equivalent to an average flow of 207,000 cu m per day — and a sew- erage pipe network approximately 105km in length. The high-impact project, covering a catchment area stretching from Batu 11 Cheras to Kajang, allows visitors to appreciate the technology at work. It incorporates top-of-the-class knowledge of sewage treatment plant initiatives undertaken at the Tokyo Metropolitan Sewerage Service in Japan.

New townships in Greater KL

City of Elmina: Sime Darby Property inks deal to set up rainforest knowledge centre
Chelsey Poh August 27, 2019 17:40 pm +08
PETALING JAYA (Aug 27): Sime Darby Property has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Tropical Rainforest Conservation & Research Centre (TRCRC), to jointly operate the Elmina Rainforest Knowledge Centre (ERKC) and an Endangered, Rare and Threatened (ERT) Native Tree Nursery in the City of Elmina, Shah Alam.

The ERKC and ERT will be set up at the 300-acre Central Park in the City of Elmina.

The township is connected to the 2,700-acre Subang Forest Reserve while the Central Park is expected to become an off-site conservation area.

The ERKC is currently under construction and is expected to be completed by mid-September this year, while the ERT Native Tree Nursery will be constructed by mid-2020, Sime Darby Property said in a statement yesterday.

Sime Darby Property Acting Group CEO Datuk Wan Hashimi Albakri Wan Ahmad Amin Jaffri said the company plans to replant an urban rainforest within Elmina Central Park to improve biodiversity value, help mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon and to create an environment that provides opportunities to learn about the importance of nature.

“In essence, the reforestation project is carried out to connect our communities with nature. TRCRC’s expertise will help us complete our mission and enhance community awareness on the benefits of co-existing with nature,” he offers. TRCRC is a local non-profit non-governmental organisation (NGO) which focuses on rainforest conservation and research.

Positioned as the “Gateway to Malaysia’s Natural Heritage”, the ERKC will focus on environmental education and conservation, research & development, promotion of eco-tourism and other green activities whereas the ERT Native Tree Nursery will be a facility focusing on producing up to 100,000 threatened species under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List. These trees will be planted first within the Elmina Central Park.

The ERT Native Tree Nursery will also help to continuously supply plants for the township and other Sime Darby Property townships in the future.

“Our collaboration with Sime Darby Property will help raise awareness on the plight of the Malaysian rainforest, and hopefully make rainforest conservation more accessible for people to participate in,” said TRCRC executive director Dr Dzaeman Dzulkifli.

TRCRC plans to manage and operate both facilities, with a portion of the profits from the sale of trees from the nursery funding the programmes at the ERKC.
