Cops to monitor accident-prone stretch of East-West link expressway

KUALA LUMPUR: Police will closely monitor the stretch of the East-West link expressway near the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) vehicle depot in Cheras following a spike in accident cases there.

Kuala Lumpur Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department (JSPT) chief Asst Comm Zulkefly Yahya said 28 accidents occurred at the expressway in the direction of the city centre between Jan 1 and July 13.

"We identified wet roads due to rain and drivers speeding in the area until they lost control of their vehicles as some of the factors that caused the accidents.

"However, we will monitor the area closely to prevent any acts of sabotage that can cause accidents," he said when contacted on Tuesday (July 13).

ACP Zulkefly was commenting on a viral video that alleged several accidents occurred in the area.

"We urge motorists to be careful when driving on that particular stretch.

"Anyone with inquiries can call Jalan Tun H.S. Lee Traffic police station at 03-2071 9999 or KL police hotline at 03-2146 0584 / 585 or the nearest police station," he added.
