"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.
