KUALA LUMPUR – Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will discuss with the police the possibility of establishing specific rules for bicycle users.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said they include discipline and the installation of lights on bicycles to avoid accidents.
“The safety of the bicycle lanes will also be studied,” he told reporters after closing a public engagement initiative for the DBKL bicycle lane here, today.
DBKL is developing three 12 km bicyle lanes covering Mid Valley-Dataran Merdeka, Wangsa Maju/Taman Melati and Taman Batu Muda.
The projects estimated at a cost of RM3 million are expected to be completed in mid-2015.
Ahmad Phesal said DBKL will provide adequate signages and resting places along the three bicycle lanes.
DBKL plans to build bicycle lanes in other areas to make Kuala Lumpur a ‘Bike-Friendly City’ and promote bicycle as an alternative mode of transport.- BERNAMA
