DBKL bicycle track opening in December

KUALA LUMPUR, 25 Sept 2017:

The bicycle track along Sungai Bunus starting from the Kampung Boyan Water Retention Pond in Lorong Gurney to Taman Tasik Titiwangsa will be open to the public in December.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) planning executive director Datuk Mohd Najib Mohd  said the construction of the track was at the final stage of studies involving aspects of consumer safety and comfort.

“Currently, DBKL and the Drainage and Irrigation Department of the Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory are still co-operating in conducting cleaning and beautification works and boosting the quality of the river water here.

“However, we hope it can be speeded up and opened to the public during the school holiday at the end of the year.”

Mohd Najib said DBKL was also building a bicycle track to connect the Kampung Boyan Water Retention Pond with the Hotspring Park and Kampung Baru.

He said DBKL allocated RM200,000 to complete all pedestrian tracks or bicycle track as a move to foster four core values in society, namely, clean up, pollution prevention, greening and advocacy.

“We hope the new projects to be completed next year will become new leisure areas for city folks as Taman Tasik Titiwangsa may be closed in the middle of next year to make way for the River Of Life project.”

The programme, which is centred on the Local Agenda 21, is implemented to raise awareness on the conservation of  rivers and surrounding areas and to encourage more corporate body participation in contributing towards a better environment.
