KUALA LUMPUR — The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will terminate 10 projects worth RM1 billion, said Mayor Tan Sri Mhd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz.
“DBKL has decided to reduce the number of projects, which include roads and parking projects, and will also scrap the sports club projects,” he told reporters after attending a meeting with the Council of Eminent Persons at Menara Ilham here, today.
He said some of these projects were still in the tendering stage while some had not been tendered out.
He justified that the decision was taken by DBKL’s top management and his attendance at the CEP’s meeting was to brief the council on the decision.
“First of all, this decision (cancellation of projects) was made due to the allocation of budgets that we have in hand…we have reviewed (the projects) because we want to reduce DBKL’s expenses,” he said.
Previously, the city council has temporarily halted the process of granting approvals to all proposed projects, as well as terminating the RM180 million repainting project at the People’s Housing Projects (PPR) and Public Housing Projects (PPA). — BERNAMA
