Kuala Lumpur Car Free Day

When:  Sunday, 22nd September 2013, 7am - 11am
Where: Golden Triangle, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Info: NST

Kuala Lumpur will become the latest city to join the World Car-Free Day movement on Sunday. For the first time, a section of its busiest area will be cordoned off to traffic from 7am to 11am. A 4km loop around Bukit Nenas - from Jalan Dang Wangi to the Golden Triangle via Jalan Ampang, Jalan P. Ramlee, Jalan Raja Chulan, Bukit Bintang and Jalan Sultan Ismail - will be closed to cars.

In describing the event as an effort to have Kuala Lumpur folk play their part in reducing the city's carbon footprint, Malaysian National Cycling Federation deputy president Datuk Naim Mohamad said more car-free days were in the pipeline. If a monthly campaign proves successful as well, then we may see a car-free Sunday every week. [Via Venusbuzz]
