DBKL stops work at construction site near Bandaraya LRT station

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has issued a stop-work order for a construction site on Jalan Raja Laut with immediate effect following service disruption on the Ampang Light Rail Transit (LRT) line on Jan 27.

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

He said the decision was made from the outcome of a meeting held with representatives of the Land Transport Agency (APAD), Prasarana Malaysia Berhad (Prasarana), and several DBKL departments last Saturday (Jan 28).

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

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

“DBKL through its One-Stop Committee will also seek the involvement of APAD and Prasarana to obtain their views, especially when there is a development application in or near the railway protection zone,” he added.

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

Rapid Rail Sdn Bhd in a statement stated that preliminary checks found that the kink was caused by damage to the flyover structure carrying the rail tracks due to construction work adjacent to the area.
