  About the River of Life (ROL) project

ROL (River of Life) aims to transform the Klang River into a vibrant and livable water front with high economic value. This transformation is divided into three main components: 


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 year 2020.

2. River master planning and beautification

To increase 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 masterplanning and beautification works will spur economic investments into the areas immediately surrounding the river corridor. To catalyse development along the corridor, potential government land will be identified and tendered out to private developers through competitive bidding.
