Bridge Collapses, Road Link Between Kluang-Kahang Cut Off
KLUANG, Jan 13 (Bernama) -- The road link between Kahang and Kluang has been cut off when a bridge over Sungai Semberong at Batu 5 Jalan Kluang-Mersing collapsed after being washed by strong current about 4am Saturday.
A spokesman from the Kampung Gajah police station said the road was also the access road to the National Service Training camp at Padang Hijau, Kahang, where more than 400 participants were undergoing training.
However, he said the camp was not affected by the floods as it was located on higher ground.
Meanwhile in KOTA TINGGI, motorists using the Kota Tinggi-Johor Baharu road were trapped in a traffic congestion due to landslides at seven locations along the road.
Workers from the Johor Public Works Department are busy clearing the affected areas.
