Energy Commission probing cause of gas leak at LRT 3 site

PETALING JAYA: The Energy Commission is looking for the actual cause behind the gas leak at the LRT 3 construction site in Shah Alam that forced authorities to close the main route from Subang to Glenmarie.

The commission said it was alerted to the gas leak on Thursday (April 22) and Gas Malaysia Distribution Sdn Bhd took immediate steps to fix the problem.

"Repair works are being carried out and no casualties have been reported. Gas supply to customers has not been disrupted," it said on Sunday (April 25).

It added that early reports on the incident suggest that it could have been caused by construction works in the LRT 3 network.

However, it said the actual reason will only be known after the commission concludes its investigations.

The commission said it was also working with other relevant parties to ensure public safety.

Members of the public may send any concerns or complaints to the commission via its website, by phone at 03-8870 8800 or by email at

On Friday (April 23), Shah Alam police created a contra-flow lane on the road from Subang to Glenmarie after the gas leak forced that stretch to close.

Shah Alam OCPD Asst Comm Baharudin Mat Taib said the contra-flow was to prevent massive congestion at the location.

"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.

He added that the road closure was made on the recommendation of the Fire and Rescue Department.
