KUALA LUMPUR: Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has issued a stop work order for a construction site in Jalan Raja Laut here with immediate effect following service disruptions on the Ampang LRT line on Jan 27.

KL mayor Mahadi Che Ngah said the stop work order was issued to “Persekutuan Seruan Islam (Jam’iyah) Selangor dan Wilayah Persekutuan”, the owners of the proposed project which involved the construction of the 44-storey Menara SOHO building comprising 326 units with a basement on Lot PT 163.

He said the decision followed a meeting with representatives of the land public transport agency (Apad), Prasarana Malaysia Bhd, and several DBKL departments last Saturday.

“This directive is a safety measure to ensure that Apad and its related agencies can investigate and determine the cause of the LRT service disruption,” he said in a statement.

He said the project is still at a preliminary stage, involving earthworks outside of zone 1 and zone 2 (protection zone).

“DBKL will also seek the involvement of Apad and Prasarana to obtain their views when there is a development application in or near the railway protection zone,” he added.

On Jan 27, the Ampang LRT line experienced delays due to a kinked track alignment near the Bandaraya LRT station.

In a statement, Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd said preliminary checks found that this was caused by damage to the flyover structure carrying the rail tracks due to construction works adjacent to the area. - FMT
