Part of the road at the intersection of Jalan Pudu and Jalan Hang Tuah, where an underground tunnel was being constructed, collapsed earlier today. The tunnel, part of the Pudu underpass project by the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL,) sunk at about 10.38am and again at 12.20pm.
DBKL have cautioned that there is a possibility that the road may collapse further along the tunnel line.
For the time being, Monorail service between Imbi and Hang Tuah stations has been temporarily halted. Rapid Rail has extended a shuttle service between KL Sentral and Hang Tuah, Imbi to Titiwangsa and KL Sentral to Titiwangsa.
Traffic from Jalan Hang Tuah to Jalan Imbi has been diverted to Jalan Pudu and traffic from Puduraya has been diverted to Jalan Imbi.
