KUALA LUMPUR Aug 1 (Reuters) - AECOM has been chosen to carry out a river beautification project worth one billion ringgit ($337 million) in Malaysia, the state news agency Bernama reported on Monday.
AECOM, a U.S.-based engineering and architectural firm, will work on a 10.7km stretch of the Klang and Gombak River, which traverses the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.
The company was picked for the "River of Life" project after winning a planning competition earlier this year, the report added.
