PETALING JAYA: A thorough investigation into the cause of the metal scaffolding collapsing at an LRT3 construction site along Jalan Langat in Bandar Bukit Tinggi will be conducted.

In a statement, Prasarana Malaysia Berhad said that it has instructed its turnkey contractor, MRCB George Kent Sdn Bhd, to provide a detailed report as well as mitigation measures to prevent similar incidents in the future.

"We firmly believe that safety is paramount and it requires attention and total commitment from all parties involved to ensure overall worksite safety is maintained, and that we comply with safety regulations at all times.
