KUALA LUMPUR: The collapse of a construction crane arm caused massive traffic jam at Damansara-Puchong Expressway (LDP) earlier today.

Fortunately, no casualties were reported in the 5pm incident.

It was learned that the crane, located at a construction site next to the highway’s new flyover, fell across the road, making it impassable.

It was reported that traffic was backed up for more than five kilometres.

A source said shortly after the incident, the project’s contractors immediately launched an operation to remove the crane.

The operation was completed by 6.30pm.
