Nehemiah Wall at Klang River, Kuala Lumpur
Client : Projek Lintasan Kota Sdn Bhd
Consultant : Ranhill Bersekutu Sdn Bhd
Completion : September 1999
A total of 750m long of river wall was constructed on the banks of Klang River, Kuala Lumpur stretching from Jalan Sultan Ismail to Jalan Tun Razak using the Nehemiah Wall technology. The river wall was needed to increase the flow capacity of the river, to gain precious land along the prime area of Kuala Lumpur city and to provide the needed right of way for the Project Lintasan Kota Elevated Highway.
The design of the AE river wall is similar to the design of AE wall on land except that adequate considerations need to be provided for hydrostatic pressure, buoyancy, drainage and scouring protection at the toe. A typical section is as shown in the sketch below.
