An overhead flyover near Selangor Science Park, Cyberjaya, heading towards Aman Putra has collapsed this afternoon. 

Selangor Development Corporation (PKNS) general manager Othman Omar confirmed that the structure collapsed at 12.30pm and there were no casualties. 

According to him, the project commenced in 2007 and was completed in 2009, following which it was handed over to PLUS and Malaysia Highway Authority.

NONE"It was financed by four developers and coordinated by the State Economic Planning Unit (UPEN)," he said.

The four developers are PKNS, Unduh Aspirasi, Taraf Unggul and Semai Ria.

The flyover was opened for use in 2009 but has been closed since December 2012 after the management detected that the pillars had shown some "movements".

NONE"There is some works carried by PLUS under the flyover," said Othman, who added that he does not wish to blame anyone for the incident.

He said PKNS will set up a technical committee to identify the root cause of the incident.

"A third party consultant will also be appointed to find the cause and monitor the situation," he said, while expressing PKNS's  commitment to resolve the problem. 

According to China Press, the bridge was built near the river banks where the soil is loose. The authorities had upgraded its foundation few months ago.
