KUALA LUMPUR: The 13km bicycle and pedestrian lane along Sungai Bunus, between Section One Wangsa Maju and the Kuala Lumpur city centre, is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
Kuala Lumpur mayor Mahadi Che Ngah said work on the project was now 50% complete, involving a 5km lane from Wangsa Maju to Taman Sri Rampai, which is now accessible to cyclists and pedestrians.
He said from Taman Sri Rampai, the pedestrian and bicycle lane will pass through Ayer Panas to Jalan Semarak and Taman Tasik Titiwangsa, across to Jalan Tun Razak and then to Kampung Baru before ending at KLCC via the Saloma crossing.
He was speaking to Bernama at the plogging @ Sungai Bunus programme, which was held in conjunction with World Rivers Day.
The programme was carried out under the “Sungai Nadi Kehidupan Local Agenda 21 Kuala Lumpur” project here today.
Plogging is a combination of jogging and picking up of litter. It started as an organised activity in Sweden in 2016 and spread to other countries soon after.
On today’s programme, Mahadi said 64kg of garbage was collected along the 2km stretch around the Sungai Bunus retention pond.
