KUALA LUMPUR: The Public Works Department (PWD) has found cracks on one of the pier heads at the slip road from Ampang to Billion/Cheras roundabout on the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) here.

In a statement today, PWD said as a safety measure, the ramp has been narrowed to accommodate only one lane to reduce weight.

“The single lane at the exit ramp will be maintained for four months until detailed investigations and repairs works are completed,” the statement said.

PWD said apart from signage and notices set up at the location, safety personnel would be assigned to control traffic and assist motorists.

According to the statement, its Forensic Division detected the cracks during an inspection on July 23 and proceeded to reduce the exit ramp from six metres to 3.5 metres wide on Aug 8.
