Exco: South Selangor development master plan ready in couple months 

By Danial Dzulkifly

SHAH ALAM, March 4 — The state government is set to finalise the infrastructure master plan for the Integrated Development Region in South Selangor (Idriss) in the coming months, said state executive councillor for trade and investment Ng Sze Han.

Ng said the blueprint would encompass proposed alignments and maintenance of roads and utility networks such as power, fibre optics and water lines.

“This master plan will be used as a reference for all relevant agencies to guide future developments in the area,” he said in the State Legislative Assembly today.

He was responding to a supplementary question by Sijangkang assemblyman Datuk Dr Ahmad Yunus Hairi regarding the potential impact of proposed projects in Idriss on local communities. 

He warned that poor road networks and maintenance issues could worsen with further development.

Acknowledging the importance of public engagement, Ng affirmed the state’s commitment to conducting outreach programmes with local communities to increase awareness on projects under Idriss and their potential impacts.

He said several engagement initiatives are currently ongoing, including for the preparation of the Pulau Carey Development Master Plan and presentations on Idriss development to communities in the Kuala Langat and Sepang districts.  

Engagements are also being conducted with residents for the preparation of the social impact assessment report for the development of the Sepang Gold Coast Global Village in Bagan Lalang, Sepang.

To date, the Selangor government has approved 13 projects with an estimated development area of 17,398.56 acres under Idriss, eight of which are in Sepang and five in Kuala Langat. 

These projects, which will be developed on state government-owned lands, will be done in collaboration with private entities.
