Selangor Journal: KSSA redevelopment on track — MB
KUALA LANGAT, Sept 3 — The redevelopment of the Shah Alam Sports Complex (KSSA), covering 76.08 hectares, is going along according to the schedule.
Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said several details are being finalised and will be announced in the near future.
“InsyaAllah, I will make an announcement (on the matter) in the near future. We are finalising some details, such as when it will start, and so on.
“We have just concluded a meeting, and there are several follow-up steps which need to be taken. At the very least, the demolition operations will commence this year,” he said.
Amirudin was speaking to the press following the Fit Malaysia Selangor 2023 programme at Gamuda Cove Central Park yesterday, which saw 11,000 participants.
The programme included various activities like a fun walk, a five-kilometre run, a trail ride, aerobic exercises, skipping rope challenges, and 14 fitness competitions.
Previously, the Menteri Besar said the KSSA development project would commence in October.
Its redevelopment is deemed necessary due to the estimated high cost of repairing the existing stadium, which stands at RM787 million.
Of this figure, RM56 million has been spent on maintenance and repairing damages from 2013 to 2022.
