Botanic Gardens expansion project ready this month

The Federal Government’s RM7mil Botanic Gardens expansion project will be completed by month end.

State Drainage and Irrigation Department (DID) director Anuar Yahya said, the project commissioned by the Tourism Ministry and implemented by the DID, was “almost finishing”.

Giant Victoria Amazonica water lilies, the largest of its kind in the world, will be placed in a pool once the facade is done.

“The facade (where the controversial arches used to be) will be ready in less than two weeks.

“The double-storey pavilion which will house a visitor’s centre, administrative office and car park will be ready Dec 29, as scheduled,” he said, adding that the ministry together with the Botanic Gardens Department would decide on the management of the place.

The expansion project comprises four packages - the facade, visitor’s pavilion, eco-stream walk and bambusetum.

The latter two were completed last year.

I think now everyone wants the project to complete fast. We had enough of delayings and uneasy sights...
