KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 26 — Works Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi today said that the Damansara-Shah Alam Elevated Expressway (DASH) concessionaire has begun its process of reblackening roads and will be completed by 3am on Friday.

The Malaysian Highway Authority (LLM), DASH and PLUS Malaysia Berhad (PLUS) will also reassess the situation at PLUS New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE) sites especially with regards to the yellow and white lane markings to ensure road safety for users, he said in a Facebook posting.

“I have emphasised that this matter requires serious attention because it involves the safety and lives of road users.

“At the same time, I urge all road users to always be careful while driving,” he said.

He reminded the public that road safety is a shared responsibility.

Attached to his post was a video of an accident involving two cars that allegedly occurred near the NKVE Kota Damansara exit.

The Toyota Veloz and Toyota Innova had collided supposedly due to confusion caused by overlapping yellow and white lane markings.

The Works Ministry also shared photos of workers painting over overlapping lane markings last night to make lane markings more consistent.
