KL City Grand Prix Clean Up To Take 2-3 WeeksAuto News
The first-ever Kuala Lumpur City Grand Prix (KLCGP) came to an end over the weekend of 7-9 August 2015, and work to remove the structures put in place for the race could take two to three weeks to complete.
The work includes dismantling the grandstands, concrete crash barriers, catchfences, and on-road placements like chicanes, around the roads of Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Raja Chulan, Jalan Perak, and Jalan P. Ramlee.
Event organiser, GT Global Race Malaysia Sdn Bhd began removing the structures from 10.30pm on Sunday, a few hours after the event concluded with the prize presentation ceremonies.
Speaking to The Malay Mail Online, Datuk R. Jaya Raj, director of Pakatan Traffic, the traffic consultant appointed by the organiser said that the workers will only begin removing the items from 10.30pm to avoid causing additional congestion during the peak hour traffic. “Our personnel will be on hand to ensure the work does not disrupt traffic or pose a danger to road-users,” he said.
City traffic police chief, Asst Comm Mohd Nadzri Hussain would monitor the clearance work and will delay it should there be heavy traffic on certain days.
