IPOH: An attempt to clear a burnt crane created a 10km-long jam on the North-South Expressway near Trolak.

A PLUS spokesman said the southbound 300-tonne crane caught fire at the 370th kilometre around midnight on Saturday.

“Three cranes and a low-loader were then deployed to the scene this evening to remove the crane,” he said yesterday.

Although a contra-flow was activated northbound from the 368th kilometre of the expressway to allow the crane to be cleared, traffic still came to a near standstill.
