Public Briefings and Extension of Submission Date

Thank you to everyone who wrote into the DOE to ask for an extension for the submission of written comments to the DOE  on the DEIA for the eastern route of the KLORR.  Based on the information we have received at TrEES, the DOE has extended the submission deadline to Friday, 3 February 2012!

But that doesn't make the report any less thick and technical to read!  Reviewing the DEIA can be very time consuming and difficult, especially if for the average person.

So to help us all better understand what it's all about, public briefings on the eastern portion of the KLORR are being organised by  WWF-Malaysia, on the 12 and 14 January 2012.  Members of the public are invited to attend learn more about findings of the proposed project based on the DEIA.

Details of the briefing sessions are as follows:-

1st Session: 

     Date:      12th January, 2012 (Thursday)
     Time:      7.30pm – 9.00pm

     Venue:   WWF-Malaysia Boardroom,
                     No. 49, Jalan SS23/15

2nd Session:

     Date:      14th January 2012 (Saturday)
     Time:      3.00pm - 5.00pm

Once again, there is still time to submit your written comments to the DOE.   Comments now due by Friday, 3 February 2012.  Don't forget - YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE, so send in your comments to the DOE!
