Throughout the survey period, it has been observed that the data collected would be rated differently if collected now. Some parts of the streetscapes have changed dramatically and will continue to do so, but nonetheless this report represents a snapshot of the city as it goes through its transitional changes.
There are more than 15 recommended strategies proposed, mostly conceptual with a need for further feasibility studies, but there is no singular solution to address the issues the city faces. Instead a clearer vision on equal access and equity to space is needed.
We have tried our best to present the data as accurate and clearly as possible, with the intention to complement existing projects and infrastructure. Through the assistance & guidance of Think City and examples of best practices, we hope this report will be useful to the future plans and aspirations of Kuala Lumpur and its people.
