Land clearing for ECRL does not involve forest reserves, says firm

THE land clearing for the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project in Selangor does not involve any degazettement of forest reserves, including those within the Selangor State Park, Malaysia Rail Link Sdn Bhd (MRL) said.

Instead, the ECRL project owner said, to safeguard the environment, the project has complied with the approved environmental impact assessment (EIA), environmental management plan and erosion and sediment control plans guidelines as well as conditions that were prescribed by the Department of Environment (DOE) and Department of Irrigation and Drainage.
