Klang Valley Komuter, ETS services disrupted after crane collapses

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 13 — The Komuter and Electric Train (ETS)  services of Keretapi Tanah Melayu Bhd (KTMB) in the Klang Valley were disrupted when a crane toppled near its track yesterday.

In a statement, KTMB said the incident caused both tracks of the Rawang-Tanjong Malim route to be obstructed. However, it did not state the location of the incident.

Following the incident, the Komuter sector of Tanjong Malim-KL Sentral-Tanjong Malim route will be end at Serendah while the ETS service will be announced later.

“The incident will take time to restore as the power line has been severed,” according to the statement.

Therefore, KTMB is providing bus service for passengers in Klang Valley for their journeys to and from Sungai Buloh to Seredah and the KL Sentral-Sungai Buloh- Tanjung Malim route for ETS passengers.

“KTMB will report the latest development from time to time and apologises for any inconvenience caused,” the statement said.
