Gas leak at LRT3 construction site forces closure of Subang-Glenmarie route, contra-flow implemented

SHAH ALAM: The road from Subang to Glenmarie will be closed for repair works following a reported gas leak at the LRT3 construction site along Jalan Persiaran Kerjaya, Seksyen U1 here.

Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Baharudin Mat Taib (pic) said a contra-flow lane will be opened to prevent massive congestion at the location.

"The contra-flow begins from the Temasya Kasih T-junction until the Palm Grove building. The distance is about 350m.

"The road closure and the opening of the contra-flow will be for about 25 days (for the repair works to be done)," he said in a statement Friday (April 23).

Following a discussion, the Fire and Rescue Department recommended for the route near the construction site to be closed for the safety of road users and others following the gas leak on Thursday (April 22), he added.

"The closed road is the main route from Subang to Glenmarie.

"However, if it is fully closed, it will lead to massive congestion towards the Federal Highway from Shah Alam. Hence, the opening of the contra-flow," he said.

Shah Alam Traffc Investigation and Enforcement division will be patrolling the area while LRT personnel will also monitor the situation to gauge the level of traffic congestion and safety of road users, ACP Baharudin said.

"Road users should follow all instructions from the authorities and drive carefully.

"The gas pipe that leaked supplies raw gas to Kuala Lumpur and surrounding areas," he added.
