On 12th and 14th January, WWF-Malaysia held public briefings on the proposed Kuala Lumpur Outer Ring Road (KLORR) based on the Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA). (The slides based on those public briefings can be viewed here). The talks were aimed at enabling the public to learn more and give their comments to save the Selangor State Park from impacts of the proposed KLORR. (EKVE)
The KLORR Detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (DEIA) is available for public review and comments. The proposed alignment of the KLORR will cut through some parts of the Selangor State Park, a park that provides vital ecosystem services to the people residing in the Klang Valley. The park acts as the main water catchment forests, providing water to Klang Valley residents and harbours rich biodiversity. It is an environmentally sensitive area.
If you are concerned about the development of this road within the Selangor State Park, please take this opportunity to review the DEIA (Executive Summary)http://gis.doe.gov.my/eia2/Upload_folder/Ex_Sum/ExecutiveSummaryklorr.pdf and provide comments to the Department of Environment by 3rd February, 2012.
