Objections to the Proposed Degazettement and Construction of the EKVE Through the Selangor State Park and Other Forest Reserves

Supporting information on our objections:

Please read the objection letter to the PM and MB for more facts supporting our objection to the proposed degazettement and construction of the EKVE through the Selangor State Park and other forest reserves

















Protect Our Water Supply:
According to S. Piarapakaran, president of the Association of Water and Energy Research Malaysia (AWER), “Pollution and the failure to protect water resources and catchment areas are the root cause of the current water crisis: 


In addition, the Selangor State Structure Plan states that all existing main raw water resources have been fully used. 

The Ampang and Ulu Gombak forest reserves serve as water catchment forests for major areas in the Klang Valley. The Ampang Intake plant supplies 19 million litres of potable water per day to 9,225 accounts in the Ampang area. The Ulu Gombak forest reserve is a catchment for the Klang Gates Dam. This dam reportedly supplies water to 80,000 households and business premises in the Klang Valley.  The EKVE will impact both these catchment areas, as well as 5 water intake points that are feed by these catchment forests.

So why have both the Federal Government and Selangor State Government approved the EKVE cutting through the Selangor State Park, Selangor’s Water Tower. Have we not learned anything from the earlier water crisis? Shouldn’t we be doing all we can to protect our existing water resources?

Develop Sustainable Transport Solutions:
Thank you, Dr Kua Kia Soong, for providing another voice of reason on what seems to be an illogical proposal to degazette critical water catchment forests. 

“This East Klang Valley Expressway is simply one highway too many. I invite all concerned Malaysians who care about a sustainable quality of life that respects the natural environment, to stand up and call for a halt to this highway madness.


A sustainable solution that ensures both the preservation of Malaysian nature and enables ease of mobility for majority of urban dwellers lies in creating an effective integrated public transport system, and not endless highways and tunnels for the driving pleasure of the middle and upper class.”


Protect Our Wildlife and Biodiversity:
With wildlife routinely ending up as roadkill when roads cut through forest reserves, warning signs have been put up warning motorists of wildlife crossing the road. One example is the sign outside the Sungai Dusun Wildlife Conservation Centre.  Unfortunately, our wildlife can't read road signs. 

While the destruction of habitat is the greatest threat to wildlife in Malaysia, poaching is another grave threat that can decimate local populations of wildlife in forests. The EKVE will provide easy access to the forest it cuts through. Help our wildlife by objecting to the EKVE. 

“100 points along East-West Highway for illegal hunters to enter Belum, Temenggor forests.  EASY access into the Royal Belum state park and Temenggor forest reserve along the East-West Highway has allowed poachers to make a killing on the country's rich wildlife” – The NST, 24 Dec 2012

“Sun Bear carcass and snare find point to relentless poaching in Belum-Temengor Forest Complex. Poaching for trade is clearly the most chronic threat to Malaysia’s wildlife. The rising incidences close to the highway should be warning enough that poachers enjoy easy access to the animals” – WWF Malaysia website, 28 Jan 2014

Tuhan tidak akan merubah nasib Anda jika Anda tidak berusaha untuk merubahnya.
