Why Are People So Worried About the KLORR

The proposed KL Outer Ring Road will cause irreparable damage to Taman Negeri Selangor.  The highway will cut through the Ampang Forest Reserve and bisect the Klang Gates Quartz Ridge.  If the highway goes behind the ridge, instead of cutting through the ridge, the road will damage the Klang Gates Reservoir, a pristine water source for all of Kuala Lumpur city.

The highway will jeopardise the biodiversity found within the Park.  As much of the Park is hilly terrain, there is also great worry about the potential of landslides, noise pollution, air pollution and run-off pollution from the highway.
