A notice posted on the window at the Imbi Monorail Station about the monorail service suspension and only one train to Titiwangsa is currently available.
COMMUTERS are finding it difficult to use the monorail following the disruption in service because of the road collapse in the Bukit Bintang area.
Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Khairani Mohamed said in a statement that the monorail service between the Bukit Bintang and Imbi stations would be suspended until further notice following Wednesday’s incident.
Salesman Alex Ooi who wanted to go to KL Sentral from the Imbi area had to walk to the Hang Tuah station to take the train.
“It took me almost 15 minutes. It is not that far but tourists may have a problem,” he said.
German tourist Angela Bergschneider, who had just landed in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, said it was a hassle as there were no clear signs about the suspension of service at Imbi.
“It was a bit of a hassle but I did not mind walking to the next station to go to KL Sentral. But I wish the operators had provided signs in English for foreign tourists,” she said.
Those planning to transfer to the LRT Kelana Jaya Line should take the monorail from Imbi to Bukit Nanas as it is a short walk to the Dang Wangi LRT Station.
Meanwhile, it was business as usual in the vicinity of the road collapse.
Ain, who is a supervisor at one of the restaurants near Berjaya Times Square, said water supply was normal.
“So far, we have not experienced any cuts but are storing more water, just in case,” she said.
The road collapse has been blamed on ongoing construction work of an underground tunnel, which is part of the Pudu underpass project by Kuala Lumpur City Hall.
