Pulau Indah

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pulau Indah ("Indah Island") is an island in Klang District, Selangor, Malaysia, formerly known as Pulau Lumut. Malaysia's largest port, West Port, Port Klang, is on the island.

There are two bridges linking the island to the mainland: Westport Bridge to Teluk Gong and the Shah Alam Expressway, and the Selat Lumut-SKVE Bridge to Pulau Carey and the South Klang Valley Expressway. Prior to the completion of the bridges, the only mode of transportation for the island inhabitants was a regular one-hour ferry service to Port Klang Terminal.

In addition to West Port, Pulau Indah primarily contains Pulau Indah Industrial Park (including Selangor Halal Hub), four local villages (Kg. Perigi Nenas, Kg. Sungai Pinang, Kg. Sungai Kembong, Kg. Teluk Nipah), a seaside park (Laguna Park), a housing estate (Bandar Armada Putra), and the Malaysian Navy's Pusat Hidrografi Nasional.

Pulau Indah had significant mangrove swamps, but most of the mangroves were lost by 1999 for the development of West Port and industrial estates.[1][2]
