Update (14 May 2014): The information for this article was sourced from Bernama. However, we would like to point out a slight error to this blurb. The River Of Life project is nowhere near “almost complete”. The Expat team worked directly with PEMANDU and the relevant government agencies to write a comprehensive article on the River Of Life project and its progress. The article is available in the May issue of The Expat magazine. You can read the article online here.
The River Of Life Project (ROL) is 56% completed, according to a report in Bernama. Work on the project, which is part of the Greater Kuala Lumpur Project, started in 2011.
According to Natural Resources and Environment Minsiter, Datuk Seri G. Palanivel, the ROL project aimed at changing the image of Sungai Gombak and Sungai Klang.
The ROL project focuses on three aspects; cleaning the river, beautifying the river and land development.
“The project involves 26 government agencies, the private sector and consultants. We hope it will proceed smoothly until its completion in 2020,” said the minister.
