KUALA LUMPUR: At least one billion ringgit worth of City Hall projects have been axed, says Mayor Tan Sri Mohd Amin Nordin Abd Aziz (pic).

"A few projects have been chopped, including those yet to be opened for tender.

"Almost 10 projects worth about RM1bil were stopped," he told reporters when leaving Menara Ilham after briefing the Council of Eminent Persons on Monday (June 4).

Mohd Amin noted that these projects were at the tender stage and no offers had been finalised at the time of cancellation.

Among the projects, he said, were for city roads, parking lots, and sporting avenues.

"The decision to cancel was made by the top City Hall management. We want to cut costs and we feel there are enough projects ongoing this year.

"There were also some complications obtaining land for some of the projects," he said.

On projects like the River of Life, Mohd Amin said those were ongoing Federal-level projects and would not be disturbed.
