kl gp barriers

KL City Grand Prix organiser GT Global Race promised that all structures relating to the street race, along with the temporary facilities, will be cleared by the end of the week, reported The Star.

According to CEO and president M Arrasu, dismantling works had already commenced since the race ended 11 days ago. The roads in which the KL City GP took place include Jalan Ampang, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Perak and Jalan P. Ramlee.

Safety fences, barriers and temporary seats are among the structures used at the KL City GP. Arrasu said work could only take place after 10.30 pm at night so as to avoid peak traffic in the city. “We have to stop before the morning traffic opens to ensure smooth flow of traffic during office hours.” he said.

A week ago, city traffic police chief ACP Mohd Nadzri Hussain said that contractors were advised to carry out work from 11pm to avoid causing congestion, however should traffic be heavier on other days, removal works were only to take place at midnight and come to a halt by 5 am.
