Sunway Construction issued a statement that the 5am incident was caused when crosshead concreting works that were carried out.

Fortunately, no one was hurt during the incident even though the structure did cause a massive traffic jam in the morning. The traffic jam prompted Sunway Construction to call in enforcements to disperse traffic.

We strongly advise that even after the roads reopen, beware of leftover debris that will cause damage to your car.
