KL City Hall must improve the implementation of projects
The 2013 KL City budget is RM2.188 billion, inlcuding RM700 million for development. But, development projects tend to have problems such as delay, cost increase and abandonment. For example, the bridge linking Taman Emas and Metro Prima collapsed about three years ago. We discussed with Public Works Department of the City Hall about building a new bridge. After much delay and dithering, works on the new bridge began on 16.4.2012 and completed in December 2012. It took over two years to implement the bridge project costing over RM1 million. The Deputy Federal Territory Minister announced in parliament that the project cost RM3 million. KL City Hall must announce the actual cost of the bridge.
