The Connectors

The connectors are a key component in further activating the Taman Tugu park and as a broader initiative to stitch the urban fabric of the city, making it more pedestrian friendly.

These connectors seek to fix the “last-mile-connection” gap between the Kuala Lumpur Sentral railway station, National Muzium, Perdana Botanical Gardens, various cultural and historical sites along the Gardens, the National Monument (Tugu Negara), the Taman Tugu park and the River of Life stretch in central Kuala Lumpur.

Based on views from various stakeholders, feasibility studies, leveraging on other development projects, and existing infrastructure, two of the initial proposed connectors will be replaced. The below are the changes to the connectors:

A pedestrian friendly walkway from the Bank Negara KTM Komuter Station to the main entrance of Taman Tugu ?
