Along with this monsoon season comes also the danger of falling trees.

Yesterday, a tree fell on the train tracks between the KTM Kepong station and the KTM Sungai Buloh station in Kuala Lumpur, at KM372.46, causing service disruptions on both tracks.

In a statement, KTM Bhd apologised for any inconvenience caused and said the 4.45pm incident had affected train operations.

As a result, there was no KTM Komuter service between the Kepong station and Sungai Buloh.

Meanwhile, train service for the Port Klang to KL Sentral route and the Sungai Gadut to Batu Caves route was operating as usual.

As for the Electric Train Service (ETS), ETS Train 9030 on the KL Sentral to Ipoh route was held up between the Sungai Buloh and Kepong station route.

All ETS train services experienced delays of between 60 mins and 90 mins.

Repair works were immediately done to ensure both tracks operated as usual immediately.

Be careful during this rainy season guys. Apart from the rain, trees also pose a danger to motorists.
