PETALING JAYA: Repair and clean-up works at the scene of the LRT collision have concluded, says the Transport Ministry.

Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong (pic), in a Facebook post on Thursday (May 27), said that it was completed as of 5.45pm.

"Preliminary testing has been conducted to ensure systems and equipment are in working order.

"A final test will be conducted during engineering hours, after service ends for the day.

"This will be witnessed by the Land Public Transport Agency (Apad) and approval for track usage will be given after its safety has been proven," he said.

He added that he hoped the Kelana Jaya LRT line would operate at its normal frequency on Friday (May 28).

On Monday (May 24) night, a train under manual control undergoing testing collided into another carrying 213 passengers between the KLCC and Kampung Baru stations.

The incident left 47 people severely injured and 166 others with light injuries.

They were later sent to Hospital Kuala Lumpur for treatment.
