PETALING JAYA: A burst 900mm water pipe in Persiaran Suria, Mutiara Damansara wreaked traffic havoc around The Curve, Ikano and Ikea shopping centres on Saturday afternoon, but flooding has now receded and traffic is returning to normal.
An MRT Corp spokesman said the 10.15am incident caused water to gush out onto the intersection of Persiaran Surian and Jalan PJU 7/8, and even into the basement carpark of the Ikano Power Centre, reaching around 10 carpark lots in Basement P2.
"As at 3pm today, flooding on the road had receded and traffic flow is back to normal at the intersection.
"Syabas was immediately notifed of the incident and they have managed to close the valve for the water pipe. Water has now stopped flowing from the damaged pipe.
"The MRT Project Works Package Contractor for this area is Mudajaya Corporation Bhd immediately deployed its Emergency Response Team to help manage traffic in the area," said the spokesman.
