An excavator was seen at Taman Rimba Kiara uprooting trees and transplanting them.

TAMAN Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) residents were shocked to see that an excavator had started uprooting and transplanting trees at Taman Rimba Kiara despite a court hearing that is still pending on the controversial development of the park.

A Save Taman Rimba Kiara Group coordinator spokesman said residents went on site to check on the situation after having been alerted through Facebook and Whatsapp messages.

“The residents were alarmed and highly distressed to discover that works have commence at Taman Rimba Kiara.

"They discover that some trees had been uprooted and had been felled.

“I spoke to the supervisor on-site, and they are uprooting the trees from the upper section and transplanting them to the lower section of the park.

“It appears that trees clearing will continue, and this is just the start of the destruction of the park,” he told StarMetro during a phone interview. 

A notice board (pix below) has been put up at Jalan Mohd Fuad, where the existing entrance of the park is located, to inform the public of the coming relocation of the entrance to Taman Rimba Kiara Park.
