Cracks found on MRR2 Ampang-Cheras exit ramp

The Middle Ring Road 2 in Kuala Lumpur.

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

In a statement today, it said the ramp has been narrowed to only one lane of traffic to reduce the weight on it.

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

The PWD said that apart from signages and notices, safety personnel will be assigned to control traffic and assist motorists.

It said its forensic division detected the cracks during an inspection on July 23 and reduced the exit ramp from 6m to 3.5m wide on Aug 8.
