MBI: 'Ipoh' wording landmark is off-limits

IPOH: Thrill seekers who wish to climb the "Ipoh" wording landmark that greets those driving into the city, think again.

The Ipoh City Council (MBI), in a statement Saturday evening, said that the landmark is off-limits to the public.

Recently, pictures of group of youths climbing the landmark went viral on social media.

The pictures drew the ire of MBI, which said it was dangerous to climb.

"MBI has never allowed anyone to climb the signboard because it is puts the lives of those attempting it in danger.

"It also affects the safety of road users using the busy Jalan Kuala Kangsar.

"The structure is not meant to support extra weight and could topple. MBI emphasises that if such a thing happens, it is because of these individuals," it said in the statement

MBI said it would lodge a police report to ensure action is taken against the individuals, whom it deemed as 'irresponsible'.
