PETALING JAYA: Prasarana Malaysia Bhd has again assured that the beam on the pier of a Light Rail Transit (LRT) extension line along Federal Highway near Subang Jaya does not pose any danger to motorists.

Its group communications and strategic marketing executive vice-president Lim Jin Aun said there was nothing wrong with the beam and that the surrounding roads were now safe for use as a gantry crane on the beam that prompted the contractor to divert traffic along the busy thoroughfare last Saturday had been removed.

“We have safely brought down the gantry crane and that was the most important part of the exercise of that day.
