Old Kajang Stadium for New Kajang Square

Old Stadium making way for....

New Kajang Square

I wasn't aware that the iconic landmark of Kajang town - Kajang Stadium was scheduled to be demolished on 15th August 2010. I saw the news only a day before it was set to be torn down.

The 40-year-old Kajang Stadium will make way for the new Kajang Square project with cost estimated at RM5.5 Mil. The stadium, built in the late 1970s, will be turned into a public square where people could jog or enjoy a stroll. The project would include a multi-million rinngit sports complex with futsal and badminton courts, field for tai chi, yoga and aerobic activities, a children’s playground and kiosks selling various wares.

The first phase, a playground will be built at a cost of RM200,000 which is almost completed. The second phase will include the building of two futsal courts. Part of the walls will be torn down but the field will remain. There will be a bitumen track instead of synthetic rubber, which will incur more cost. The Kajang Square will also have kiosks and a stage. The whole project would take about three years to complete.
