Saving Bukit Dinding

Sri Utama Dewi, Secretary, Section 5 Taskforce

Saving Bukit Dinding

Standing at 291m, Bukit Dinding is described as one of the last green fortresses in Kuala Lumpur, and is a popular recreational spot for many. Back in late 2022 though, news broke that two blocks of 26-storey condominiums will be built there, even though the area has been known to be landslide-prone, and has an underground water source at the hill. Residents around the area and others opposing the development filed for a Judicial Review on the project last December, and are keeping up the fight to keep this green lung intact. We speak to Sri Utami Dewi, the Secretary of the Section 5 Taskforce to get some updates on the case. 

If you would like to support the initiative to protect Bukit Dinding, you may assist in the fundraising efforts of the Friends of Bukit Dinding here.
