PETALING JAYA: The Mass Rapid Transit Corporation Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) has denied that the road collapse at the Jalan Pudu-Jalan Imbi-Jalan Hang Tuan intersection on Wednesday was connected with the MRT project.
“MRT Corp wishes to state unequivocally the alignment of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line does not pass that location,” they said in a statement Wednesday.
MRT Corp advised motorists to heed all traffic signage implemented by the Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) and the police.

According to DBKL’s Integrated Transport Information System (ITIS) twitter account traffic from Jalan Hang Tuah to Jalan Imbi has been diverted to Jalan Pudu while traffic from Puduraya has been diverted to Jalan Imbi.
