kl gp barriers

According to the Malay Mail Online, workers are currently dismantling grandstands, crash barriers, triple high guardrails and chicanes that were put up for the recent Kuala Lumpur City Grand Prix at Jalan Ampang, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Perak and Jalan P. Ramlee.

Work started at 10.30pm on Sunday, just a few hours after the prize presentation ceremony. Organiser GT Global Race and its contractors are currently overseeing the process with a range of forklifts, cranes, lorries and trailers to expedite the removal of the structures.

Datuk R. Jaya Raj, director of Pakatan Traffic, the traffic consultant appointed by the organiser, believes it will take two or three weeks maximum to remove all structures. “Our personnel will be on hand to ensure the work does not disrupt traffic or pose a danger to road-users,” he said.

City traffic police chief ACP Mohd Nadzri Hussain said his personnel will monitor the contractors. “We advised the contractor to carry out their work from 11pm onwards to avoid causing congestion. If traffic is heavy on certain days, then they will start work after midnight and stop by 5am,” he said.
