Thousands of motorists were caught in near stand-still traffic when the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) flyover in Kepong and the road below was abruptly closed by police this morning.

This traffic congestion occurred along the road from Sungai Buloh and Sri Hartamas following the road closure.

Police closed the road after concrete fragments started falling from under the elevated expressway this morning.

The fragments started raining on passing motorists at 10.30am after cracks started appeared on Pillar 28 of the flyover.

City Traffic deputy chief DSP Ng Fook Long said the flyover was closed to traffic for public safety following inspections by Public Works Department (JKR) and City Hall engineers.

This is the third time the 1.7km flyover has to be closed due to cracks. It was first  closed in August 2004 and then for the second time in February 2006 for repairs.

The government has to date spent more than RM70 million on repairs to the flyover and previous inspections by engineers have reveal flaws in the design of the elevated expressway. More taxpayers’ money is expected to be spent to get the Kepong MRR2 flyover repaired and safe for motorists.
