THE Taman Linear Kampung Selamat park next to the MRT station in Sungai Buloh is now open.

It was built by Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) as part of its corporate social responsibility programme.

The 600sq m park, which cost about RM500,000, is on Syabas reserve land.

A simple ceremony was held to open the park before handing it over to Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ).

Present were MRT Corp strategic communications and stakeholder relations director Datuk Najmuddin Abdullah, MBPJ landscaping head Zuraidah Sainan, Kampung Selamat representative Ramli Yahya, MBPJ representative Nor Azmi Abdul Kadir, MMC-Gamuda KVMRT (PDP) Sdn Bhd director Maslan Othman, Syabas distribution operations deputy head Yusof Saroji and Eco Design Collaboration Sdn Bhd director Fatthullah Mohd Nor.

MMC Gamuda was the project delivery partner of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) Line while Eco Design was the consultant for the construction of the park.

Najmuddin said, “Building facilities such as parks for individuals along the MRT alignment will prove to be beneficial for their well-being.”

Ramli said he hoped the park would benefit those living in the area.

“The initiative MRT Corp has presented to our community is invaluable and this park will not only be a place for people to exercise, but also be a walkway to get to the station,” he said.
