Simpang Pulai-Cameron Highlands road closed due to landslide

IPOH (Bernama): A stretch of road along Federal Route 185 involving Jalan Simpang Pulai-Blue Valley heading towards Cameron Highlands is closed to all vehicles following a landslide on Saturday (Sept 18).

The Kinta District Public Works Department (PWD) said the road closure will take effect from 9pm on Saturday to a date to be announced later.

"Motorists can use the Federal Route 59 Jalan Tapah-Cameron Highlands as an alternative route. Any inconvenience caused is much regretted,” the Department said in a statement.

According to the PWD, the landslide involving a 30-metre road stretch with a depth of 4.57 metres was detected at 5.45 pm and was likely due to continuous rain which caused the soil structure to become weak and unstable.

"Monitoring by the district PWD and Federal Road concessionaire will be done from time to time,” the statement read.- Bernama
