A concrete slab from the MRT line near the Kota Damansara station, Petaling Jaya, which looks detached from the rest of the structure is worrying the public.

UPDATE: MRT Corp: No reason to worry, gap in concrete guideway is part of the design

StarMetro received a public complaint saying that the structure looked unstable and might come off and hit motorists or even pedestrian below on Persiaran Surian.

StarMetro upon visiting the site found that the slab did not move when trains plied the line.

It looked stable. However, it was also visibly cracked.

The slab is visible from the main traffic light junction on Persiaran Surian close to the Petronas petrol station and Thompson Hospital in Kota Damansara.

StarMetro has forwarded the complaint to Prasarana.

A spokesperson from Prasarana said checks would be carried out immediately.
