Bye Bye Forest, Hello Road?

The Shah Alam City Council recently released its latest draft local plan draft (Draf Rancangan Tempatan 2035) for public consultation. In this plan is a proposal to build a road right across the Shah Alam Community Forest linking Setia Alam and Bandar NusaRhu. It's estimated that the proposed road will permanently destroy about two hectares of pristine rainforest, hundreds of trees and species, and the forest trails many have come to love, all for a single road. We find out more about this community forest, and how you can participate in the public feedback proposal, from Alicia Teoh, the secretary of the Shah Alam Community Forest (SACF) Society, and Teckwyn Lim, the treasurer of Shah Alam Community Forest (SACF) Society.
