Overview of River of life bridge KL

The River of Life bridge KL is one of the most iconic parts of Kuala Lumpur. Located near Masjid Jamek Sultan Abdul Samad, the oldest mosque in the city, In 2018 the River of Life Kuala Lumpur was already voted one of the top 10 waterfront districts in the world. It is a convergence point of two rivers:

1. Klang River

The Klang River, known as Sungai Klang by the locals, streams through the regions of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor and eventually into the straits of Malacca.

2. Gombak River

The Gombak River is another major river in the Klang Valley.

The project is led by the Ministry of Federal Territories in partnership with the Department of Irrigation & Drainage (DID) Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) and other agencies and non-governmental organisations. The three major components of the project are:

  • River Cleaning
  • River Beautification
  • Commercialisation and Tourism

Before the project was launch in 2012, the rivers were filled with rotting garbage, industrial effluents and sewage. Thus, the murky waters and bad conditions of the rivers calls for the redevelopment and beautification project.

After years of development which cost approximately RM4.4 billion, the area is now a city attraction where you can find riverside cafes, bicycle lanes, dancing fountains as well as the striking blue night light of the Blue Pool.
