RM30 mil needed to rebuild Brickfields

KUALA LUMPUR, 12 June 2009: A RM30 million allocation is needed to turn Brickfields into a tourist attraction known as “Little India”, Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk M Saravanan said today.

He said the plan would include diversion of roads into one-way streets, road widening, construction of a multistorey car park, and setting up stalls in streets.

However, Saravanan noted that the problem of traffic congestion needed to be addressed first before Brickfields could become a tourist attraction and a hub for the Indian Malaysian culture in the city.

“The ministry is in the final stage of preparing a proposal on the project and would submit it to the cabinet before end of August,” he said, after launching a fundraising campign for displaced people in northern Sri Lanka at  the Buddhist Maha Vihara temple in Brickfields here. — Bernama

    Why not more? The intercultural relations should be brought up as well in Brickfields.
