ROL (River of Life) aims to transform the Klang River into a vibrant and livable waterfront with high economic value.
1. River cleaning
River Cleaning will be conducted along a 110 km stretch along the Klang River basin, covering the municipal areas of Majlis Perbandaran Selayang (MPS), Majlis Perbandaran Ampang Jaya (MPAJ), and Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL).
The goal is to bring the river from its current Class III – Class V water quality (not suitable for body-contact) to Class IIb (suitable for body-contact recreational usage) by the year 2020.
2. River master planning and beautification
To increase the economic viability of the area, master planning, and beautification works will be carried out along a 10.7 km stretch along the Klang and Gombak River corridor. Significant landmarks in the area include Dataran Merdeka, Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad, and Masjid Jamek.
3. River development
The master planning and beautification works will spur economic investments into the areas immediately surrounding the river corridor. To catalyze development along the corridor, potential government land will be identified and tendered out to private developers through competitive bidding.
