DBKL to protect Saloma Link from the homeless and vandals

KUALA LUMPUR: City Hall enforcement staff will be assigned to protect the new Saloma Link pedestrian bridge to keep the homeless and vandals away from the capital’s new landmark, Federal Territories Minister Khalid Abdul Samad said.

“We established several beautiful places in Kuala Lumpur but eventually that’s where (homeless) hung out. We need to address this problem as soon as possible and bring the homeless to the transit house,” he said.

About 100 enforcement personnel would be assigned on shifts to monitor and patrol the pedestrian bridge as well as the nearby areas such as Jalan Saloma, Jalan P Ramlee and Kampung Baru.

Closed-circuit television cameras would also be installed, he said.

Khalid said problems pertaining to homeless people and vandalism often occurred at the tourist-focused areas and required enforcement action.

Saloma Link, a 370m-long pedestrian bridge, connects Kampung Baru and a newly-opened area near the Petronas Twin Towers.

Only days after it was opened to the public early this month, the pedestrian bridge was reported to have fallen victim to vandals, with rubbish thrown everywhere and turned into a new ‘nest’ by the homeless,

Khalid said the damage had been repaired and urged the public to appreciate and use the public facilities well.
