GUA MUSANG: Police urged motorists to be careful when travelling along the Gua Musang-Lojing road due to several cave-ins.
District chief Supt Ahmad Termizi Abd Haq said the affected stretches were at Km50, Km54, Km71.1, Km74, Km81 and Km83 which could be dangerous especially on a rainy day.
At Km71.1, near the Royal Lojing Project, the road is partially closed to traffic since the cave-in on Dec 1.
The cave-in there was 50m long and 2.5m wide from the road shoulder earlier, but as of yesterday, it had widened to 5m. Traffic from Lojing headed for Gua Musang had to be diverted to the opposite lane.
According to some workers who were camped there, repair works were on hold pending a report from the Public Works Insti- tute of Malaysia (Ikram).
Businessman Daud Che Amat, 65, who was heading for Cameron Highlands for a holiday, said traffic was not bad, but that he had to be careful along the danger stretches.
“Earlier in the month, only one direction was affected,” he said.
